I love Twitter. You meet all sorts of interesting, like-minded, creative people who point you in a million different fantastic directions – and you get cookies.
Let me explain.
Someone, clearly cool, found me on Twitter. This prompted me to check out their blog. On their blog I saw a post about cookies. One hour later I was eating them – these Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies from Hello Veggie to be exact.
These cookies are very easy to make and you probably have everything you need all set to go – unless you’re like me and you think you have almond butter in the fridge but it turns out to be hazelnut butter.
No worries. I had a big bag of almonds on hand – so I threw a cup of those in the food processor and processed until they were paste. It kind of made a paste, after about 15 minutes of processing (it stuck together when pressed so I figured it was close enough). The most important thing is that the cookies worked and they worked brilliantly.
On top of tasting out of this world amazing, another reason I totally dig these cookies is that they’re not loaded up with margarine – there is some, but much less than a lot of other chocolate chip cookies out there. The almond butter emulsifies and moistens better than margarine any day. Hey, we need our healthy fats. Very important.
Do I really have to advise you to make them? I had to share because they really are delish. Really delish. Consider this fair warning however: you will need will-power of steel to not eat them all.
Trust me on this.
