Chewy Chocolate Cookies

Sometimes…….the ONLY thing that I want to eat is chocolate.  Nothing else sounds good.  Nothing else satisfies. Just chocolate.  I’m not going to lie…If I wasn’t so consumed with the number on the scale and how my skinny jeans fit, I would probably be considered as a “chocoholic”.  So, after careful consideration of what type of “chocolate” I was going to make this week…because I HAD to have something sweet and chocolatey this week…I decided on some cookies!  Chocolate cookies and almond milk are just what what the doctor ordered!  Ok, fine.  It’s what I ordered!

PLEASE do yourself a favor and go make these babies!!!  They’re quite possibly the best cookie I’ve ever made.  And who doesn’t love a cookie batter that’s made in a blender?!  YEP!!!  I didn’t feel like breaking out in a sweat trying to mix this thick batter together, so I pulled out one of my favorite kitchen gadgets and blended away!  Crispy on the outside, chewy chocolatey goodness on the inside equals PERFECTION, people!

Yields: 16 cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond butter, make sure it’s thick and not too oily
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 1/2 cup organic unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
  2. Pull out your blender or food processor!  Add the almond butter and coconut sugar and blend until mixture comes together.
  3. Add the egg, blend again.
  4. Add the cocoa powder, baking soda, salt and vanilla.  Blend until all of the ingredients are well incorporated.  Cookie dough will be thick.
  5. Transfer cookie dough to a mixing bowl and stir in chocolate chips.  (I used my hands to mix the chocolate chips in, it was easier to me.)
  6. With a spoon or ice cream scooper, scoop out 2 tbsp of dough.  I rolled my cookie dough into a ball (see picture below). Don’t flatten them out.  Continue process until dough is gone.
  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes.  Let cookies sit on the pan for 10-15 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
  8. Curl up on the couch with your boo, turn on some trashy tv show, and eat your heart out!  These babies are DELICIOUS!!!
