Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Confession: I may have eaten 7 of these cookies in one day. They are so good that I just couldn’t stop! These cookies really just melt in your mouth. I have always been a really big fan of peanut butter cookies so I decided to give almond butter cookies a try since it’s the same general idea. It turns out that they are even better than peanut butter cookies. I didn’t think it was possible to top a peanut butter cookie, but it turns out that all you need is almond butter and monster milk chocolate chips to succeed.

These are really quick to make (about 25 minutes from start to stomach), and they were a big hit at a family dinner and at work. I’m really bummed that we are all out of them now, but it just means that I’ve gotta start baking again! I used vanilla almond butter and vanilla almond milk in this recipe, but you could just use regular and add a little vanilla extract as well. It just happened to be what I had on hand. I always go to the store and think about buying the regular stuff, but then I see the word vanilla, and it’s like I love my mind. I just get really excited and start throwing everything that contains vanilla into my cart. My grocery trips often look like I am shopping for a family of 10 even though I live with one other person and a cat. Sometimes it’s so embarrassing that I just let the people at the checkout counter believe that I have 8 kids instead of one really hungry husband and a jerk cat. 

Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup vanilla almond butter (or regular almond butter plus 1 teaspoon vanilla)
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 Tablespoon vanilla almond milk
12 oz (1 bag) large milk chocolate chips or chunks (or any kind of chocolate chips you prefer)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a small bowl and set aside.

Cream together the butter, almond butter and brown sugar with a mixer until smooth.

Mix in the egg and almond milk until smooth.

Add the dry ingredients to the almond butter mixture, mixing until just combined.

Fold in the chocolate chips.

Use a 1 inch cookie scoop or just a spoon and form balls on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet, a couple of inches apart.

Bake at 350 degrees F. for 10 minutes or until just starting to brown. They will look slightly undercooked, but you want them to look like that so they stay chewy. They will crisp up slightly while cooling.
