My Father inlaw is a doll! Today he offered me a chocolate chip cookie from Starbucks and just about killed me with cravings the rest of the day. It was seriously tempting especially since I've been battling myself this week, no joke all grains and carby "goodness" sound amazing to me. I'm about ready to eat my foot some days thinking about croissants and pizza aaaaahhhh!!! So today I made these instead of opting for my not so tasty foot, and I was pleasantly surprised! I hope you are too!
Makes 24 good sized cookies Or more if you go smaller! Just remember to adjust your baking time if you make them a different size.
2/3c almond flour
1 cup sweetener
8oz cream cheese, softened
2 tbs butter, softened
1/4 t salt
1/4 t vanilla
1/2 t xantham
1/2 t baking powder
1/4 c coconut shreds (optional but amazing)
1 tablespoon coconut flour
1 tablespoon cashew butter (optional, any nut butter will do)
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips of choice
Cream together butter, cream cheese, cashew butter and sweetener.
Add in eggs one at a time, mixing well in between each.
Add remaining dry ingredients (except chocolate chips and coconut) and mix well
Add in chocolate chips and coconut pop the mix in the freezer to harden up a bit (10 minutes or so, roughly as long as it takes to heat the oven)
Preheat oven to 350
Spoon cookies onto lined baking sheet (about 1 tablespoon sized cookies) and bake for 20 minutes or until the top of the cookie is no longer moist and begins to brown on the raised parts.
UPDATE - One of my wonderful IG followers anmy amazing IG followers have tried this recipe with walnuts and cocoa nibs. I have yet to try the variation but I think it's going to be amazing!
