The most important part of changing your lifestyle so drastically to live healthier is to have a tasty little treat that you actually like. No. I’m not joking. This is the only reason we’ve been able to stick to this lifestyle so well. We still get a “treat” that makes everything seem worth it. So. I am going to start sharing our favorite treats. This past week I have made fudge in a crock pot, black bean brownies, and my absolute favorite, almond butter chocolate chip cookies.
I’ve made a lot of cookies in the past with Sunbutter-which is derived from sunflower seeds. It tastes like heaven and is Chloe’s kryptonite. She can never get enough.
Well, today I was running low on Sunbutter and opted to change my recipe up a bit. I had this collection of peanut/almond butters and decided to improvise. The results were better than amazing, so here is the recipe.
2 cups organic, light brown sugar
2/3 cup Wild Friends Chocolate Almond Butter
2/3 cup Barney Almond Butter
2/3 cup Wild Friends Sugar Cookie Peanut Butter Blend
2 Tbsp. McCormick’s Vanilla Extract
2 cups Enjoy Life Foods Chocolate Chips
Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and spoon cookie size balls onto a greased cookie sheet. Cook at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
