This is one of the easiest gluten free cookie recipes I have ever come across. I was recently introduced to a magazine called Clean Eating. I LOVE it. I found this recipe on the last page of this months' issue and thought, only SIX ingredients, this is too easy not to try. Sure enough, easy shmeezy, delicious soft chewy cookies that don't ever get dry and hard! A must make cookie! Oh and the best part....it only takes 20 minutes from start to finish! Since there is no flour, you just need one bowl, so even the clean up is a cinch!
Almond Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Clean Eating Magazine, March/April 2010 (Makes 20 Cookies)
1 cup unsalted almond butter, stirred well
3/4 cup Sucanat (I used rapadura sugar from the bulk bins at my co-op. It is the least processed of all sugars. It is the raw sugar cane ground up to a brown powder. You can get it at any health food store, or whole foods)
1 large egg
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
3 oz dark chocolate (70% cocoa or greater), broken into small pieces
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium bowl. stir together the first 5 ingredients until blended. Stir in chocolate. Drop the dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes. Remove to a wire rack and let cool for 15 more minutes.
