These chocolate almond cookies are really moist and tasty, and very more-ish. I guess that’s all you really need in a cookie?

As you may have noticed, I LOVE peanut butter.   And chocolate.  And peanut butter and chocolate together. 

But I also have a fondness for other types of nut butters – like almond butter.  And cashew butter.  Would love to try pecan butter and hazelnut butter … pardon me while I drool a little!  So I thought to myself, what would happen if I adapted my chocolate peanut butter cookies to using other nut butters? Would the texture be ok? 

So I tried almond butter for these cookies. And the result? Really moist and tasty.  I guess that’s all you really need in a cookie?  I’ve also tried this recipe with cashew butter – and I put in some white chocolate chips just for something different.  Still very VERY yummy!
