I've been making these cookies for years and they are so good! Who doesn't love a recipe with only six ingredients? Seriously, the texture is just like a regular cookie and it's kind of mind blowing to me that they don't contain any kind of flour. This recipe is adapted from Clean Eating.



Ingredients:

1 cup Nut Butter (Almond Butter works well, or Make Your Own like I did!)
1/2 cup maple syrup or agave syrup (Alternately, 3/4 cup of brown sugar but I prefer the texture in the final cookie better when using the liquid sweeteners)
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup to 1 cup chocolate chips or chopped up chocolate bar (but let's face it, 1 cup is > 1/2 cup in all ways)

Preheat oven to 350*F. Makes 12 large or 24 small cookies.

Directions:
1. If you just made nut butter, you can throw the first five ingredients in the food processor you just used. If you don't want to dirty your food processor, just mix everything except the chocolate together with a hand mixer if you're lazy like me, or a wooden spoon if you're buff.

2. Add the chocolate and mix. Remember, More Chocolate = More Better. Don't worry about the grammar, I have an English degree, if you're certified in the rules of a language you're free to play around with said rules. What you need to be worrying about is if you have enough chocolate up in there.

3. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, because ain't nobody got time to do extra dishes. Roll dough into balls and bake for 8-12 minutes (less for smaller cookies, more for larger. #Math #CommonSense.) Although you can make 12 large cookies or 24 small cookies with this recipe, let's face it. You don't win friends with small cookies. Or Salad. Do the right thing.

Oh, one tip, you might mix the nut butter and a little sweetener and taste for sweetness and adjust before adding the egg (or after if you don't care about eating raw egg, I come from a long line of batter eaters so I don't care). Maybe start with 1/4 cup maple syrup or agave and work your way up.

Looks like a delicious recipe! I have gluten issues, so these will be perfect for me. I'm going to try making my own almond butter too. Thanks!
