Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies—not your average delight!

June 25, 2013

GF Vegan CC CookieIt’s been awhile since I posted last….it’s been a busy summer :). But in the midst of all the busy-ness I thought I would share with you all my go-to cookie, that I’ve been baking once a week (or more)! They’re my favorite little delights that are so satisfying and yummy….I love them so! I found the recipe on a really great blog called The Detoxinista. She’s got a great site; definitely worth checking out!

A little about these delights…they are almond based, naturally sweetened and have very little oil added to them; they only have a handful of ingredients, but boy are they mighty good together! They are also 100% gluten free and vegan….I personally think they taste better than your traditional cookie. They stay moist, have a long shelf life and they take only minutes to make; do I have to say more :)!

I buy most of the ingredients at my local Traders Joe’s because they have really affordable almond meal and coconut oil….where as other natural foods stores do not make this cookie as affordable to make weekly.

So, without further ado, I hope you enjoy these Chocolate Chip goodies as much as I do!!! Happy Summer!!

p.s. For all you yogi’s out there…this cookie is considered fasting…as long as you use chocolate that does not have filler ingredients!
