A different texture for a flourless cookies, with bursts of chocolate chips and almond butter to tease your tastebuds.

Almond choc chip cookies (800x600)

I actually made up this recipe all by myself … well, I adapted it from the peanut butter blondie recipe (here) and wanted to make cookies out of all natural ingredients.  When I took some blondies to work recently, they went like hotcakes (literally!), so I thought to myself – how can I make these into cookies but without adding any refined sugar?  And this is what I came up with.  The almond butter gives it a totally different texture to the peanut butter in the blondies and the flaxseed gives it the ‘oomph’ to make the cookies stick together and not crumble.

I’m happy to hear any feedback from you guys when you try it – let me know what you think!
