My first time baking with almond flour has turned to be extremely successful and I am so psyched to share today’s recipe with you guys. These cookies are simply amazing. I honestly had no idea how good they would turn out until I bit into one.. oh my gosh. I am so so happy I made these!
They are fluffy and soft inside yet the exterior is a bit harder. They have a beautiful almond flavor and it pairs wonderfully with the chocolate chunks. Every chocolatey bite feels like I’m biting into a rather thick chocolate almond cloud. I guess cloud isn’t a good description because these aren’t airy. But that’s why it’d be like a stormy cloud. You know those clouds that gather in the sky before the storm? They are thick and dark.. yeah, I think that’s a good comparison.
Except these cookies bring joy. I guess storms usually don’t. Unless you’re cuddled up at home with nothing to do but sleep to the sound of the storm.. oh yeah, I love falling asleep to the sound of rain and some delicate thunder. Nothing extreme though cause then I get worried.
Haha how did I turn this post from a cookie description to talking about sleeping? Ah who cares. What’s important is that you NEED to make these! Not only are they delicious, they are also vegan and reduced fat! How awesome is that?
My parents were obsessed with these too and liked these the most out of the creations I made that were spiced chili chocolate cookies and chocolate-covered pumpkin banana bread muffin balls (coming soon!). They said this tasted like a marcipan but better. They also preferred it cold while I prefer it slightly warmed in a microwave so that the chocolate becomes beautifully melty. Whichever way you prefer to eat your cookies, you will not be disappointed by these – I guarantee it!
Yeah, you’re welcome.
