Flourless Chocolate Almond Cookies

For me, dessert can be a slippery slope. I’m not the biggest fan of all things “sweet”. These Flourless Chocolate Almond Cookies are a perfect balance. The slight sweetness of the almond and cashew butter pairs perfectly well with the rich and dark chocolate shavings. You are going to love snacking on these bad boys.

Now what makes these Flourless chocolate almond cookies different is the almond butter to sugar ratio. I’ve made a whole bunch of these and I had to throw a lot of them away. They were good but not good enough. At first, I only added a little sugar to sweeten up the almond butter. But, I learned really quickly that the cookies were a bit dry, and a bit bitter. So, I began to increase the amount of sugar until it was perfect. I saw many “almond butter” cookies used white sugar. But, I wanted the cookies to be a bit richer and I want to keep them Paleo friendly. By using coconut sugar, the cookies are a little richer, has a bit more moisture, and depth of flavor.

Like I said before, these cookies are the perfect balance of sweet and a little bitter from the dark chocolate pieces. It satisfies every inch of your palate. The rich dark chocolate shavings add depth and flavor. The almond and cashew butter combine to create the perfect texture.

PALEO II GLUTEN-FREE

Of course, it wouldn’t be a recipe from me if I didn’t sneak some other nutritional value into these cookies. So, I added collagen peptides. Collagen is the Beyoncé of proteins. It’s great for your hair, skin, bones, and nails. But, it has also been proven that collagen can help prevent heart disease, and protect from brain diseases and Alzheimer’s. It is the perfect addition to these rich and delicious cookies.
