If you are someone who loves dark chocolate and craves for everything bitter sweet this recipe is just for you. My Almond Butter – bitter sweet cookies have just the right crunch and just the right bitter sweetness to tease your taste buds and leave you with a sweet lingering for quite a good while to come…
Neil and me have been literally going berserk over cookies these past few weeks.. not to mention the fussy little Annie digs into everything that has a flavour of chocolate in it…too.. time and again… And hey, make no mistake our indulgences are purely Paleo… starting with us making a stopover at every stall that has the words ‘gluten-free’ and ‘paleo complaint’ marked on them in just about every winter market to making our own versions of Paleo compliant ginger cookies and Almond butter – bitter sweet cookies…. we are conquering it all, one cookie at a time…
ALMOND BUTTER – BITTER SWEET COOKIES
Actually its about the season as well.. come Christmas, cookies are impossible to avoid.. They are everywhere and in all shapes and sizes, in unbelievably different colours and flavour combinations… I sometimes imagine if we were to collect one cookie of each flavour and size that there is out there exactly how big a space would we need? Point is my world is no different than yours and I may post legit dinner and lunch recipes that I crave for (which is true) I can’t seem to hide the fact that there is oscillating back towards the cookies each time…
And why wouldn’t it be? When we have a recipe that can be made with literally just 5 ingredients (90% of which maybe available at your home at any given point) who can possibly say no?
Almond butter is super healthy as it is loaded with magnesium and is great when it comes to keeping your blood sugar levels stable. But the one very important thing to note here is that if you are buying your almond butter from the market you wanna make sure that the only ingredient listed on the bottle is ALMONDS and nothing else. And better yet if you have a great blender (unlike me) it is just better to make your own almond butter at home.
