Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

If y'all remember from my post from early this summer (read it here!), one of my goals for the summer was to bake more. Well a few weekends ago, I finished up all my homework early so I was able to spend my Sunday afternoon baking away! I have been on a really big almond butter kick lately so when I was cleaning out my "Healthy" Dessert board on Pinterest (follow me here), I found this recipe for Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. I have been trying lately to eat healthier since my diet has kind of gone off the rails this summer and these cookies are the perfect way to have a treat but still remain on the healthy side (um, not to mention there is 5 ingredients so super duper easy!). 
The Ingredients:
egg, almond butter, brown sugar, baking soda, chocolate chips

Step 1: Set oven to 350 degrees F

Step 2: Crack the egg in a bowl and beat lightly


Step 3: Add in the almond butter, baking soda, and sugar and mix until everything is combined well


Step 4: Mix in the chocolate chips



Step 5: Scoop the dough onto a prepared cookie sheet


Step 6: Bake for 8-10 minutes. Do not overtake these cookies, trust me they look like they aren't done but they are! I cooked mine for 9 minutes


Step 7: Let cookies cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet before transferring onto a cooling rack (sorry about the picture, for some reason Blogger isn't allowing me to change what direction it is in!)




Ingredients
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup almond butter (the original recipe says natural almond butter alters the texture of these cookies but I used natural almond butter and they are still yummy, just look a bit different from the original recipe!)
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar (I just used regular brown sugar)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips (I used normal chocolate chips since I didn't have dark chocolate chips but will definitely do that the next time I make them!)

Instructions
1. Set oven to 350 degrees F and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray
2. Crack the egg in a bowl and beat lightly
3. Add in the almond butter, baking soda, and sugar and mix until everything is combined well
4. Mix in the chocolate chips
5. Scoop the dough onto a prepared cookie sheet
6. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Do not overtake these cookies, trust me they look like they aren't done but they are!
7. Let cookies cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet before transferring onto a cooling rack 

Do you love almond butter as much as I do? Have you tried Almond Butter cookies before? Let me know in the comments!
