Almond Butter Chocolate chip cookies (paleoish)
1 cup of almond butter
Enjoy Life chocolate chips, as much as you want
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 eggs (I used duck eggs)
Several teaspoons of dried coconut
1 tsp lemon juice or apple cider vinegar
3 tbsp. Spectrum shortening (I didn't melt it)
4 packets of Truvia. If you use honey, you will have to adjust the amount of almond butter.
Preheat oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix all the ingredients together. Make into small balls, these get bigger as they cook. Put them on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes or so, just keep checking. You should take them out when they're still a little soft, that's a given for cooking with nut. They will get harder but will still be chewy enough.
I hope you like them! My 4-year-old child ate 6 in one sitting!
