My 9-year-old son, Caleb, likes to experiment in the kitchen. We have a deal that if he experiments, he leaves nothing for me to clean up. And he pretty much sticks by it, but I do occasionally have to do a “mommy clean” after the “kid clean” is done. Yesterday, he came up with this recipe, and although I couldn’t try the end result since I’m on the Whole30, Superman vouched for them and said they were “blog worthy!” So, here it is! Just a disclaimer: remember, this was created by a kid, so it has a lot of “sweet” in it!
Recipe: Caleb’s Almond Butter-Chocolate Chip Cookies(makes about 3 dozen cookies)
1 1/4 cups almond flour
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup unsweetened almond butter
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl, then add almond butter, vanilla, water and honey, and stir until combined. Scoop onto cookie sheet and bake for 9-10 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes before removing to wire rack. Caleb says you won’t regret making these…unless you don’t like almond butter.
