Chocolate Chip Cookies

Updated: Mar 19

I really enjoy a good cookie. My most favorite has always been the Oreo. I used to be able to put away an astonishing amount of Oreos in one sitting and I’ll let your imagination decide just how many that was.

I still enjoy cookies today, but in a different way. I see them as treats instead of necessary for survival. This recipe contains healthy fats from nut butters and no refined sugars. So, if you enjoy cookies even half as much as I do, I think you’ll like these too!

Chocolate Chip Cookies


Ingredients:

  • ½ cup almond butter

  • ½ cup cashew butter (if you don’t have this on hand, just use 1 full cup of almond butter)***

  • ¼ cup maple syrup or honey

  • 1 egg (3 tbsp aquafaba* for egg free)

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ cup dairy-free chocolate chips (such as Enjoy Life)


Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix until combined.

  3. Scoop out batter onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

  4. Bake for 8-10 minutes and enjoy!


Notes:

*Aquafaba is the liquid from a can of garbanzo beans (chickpeas).



***Update (March 2021): For all of our friends that can't eat nuts, this recipe is a bit of a bummer. However, if you're a fan of Sunbutter (sunflower seed butter) this recipe will work for you!!! Just replace the nut butters listed above with an equal volume (1 cup) of Sunflower seed butter and add 1/2 a teaspoon of baking powder to your dough along with all of the other ingredients listed above. If you've had experience baking with sunflower seeds, then you know to expect the green color that results for the chlorophyll in the seeds reacting with the baking soda and powder. It's kinda fun to see the look on my kids faces when they see the green inside the cookie!
