Like the original article stated: "As a HUMAN, you are obligated to love, cherish and covet the beloved cookie." So true my friend, so true. I eat a Paleo Diet, but even within the Paleo Lifestyle there are debates about how non-Paleo, or Paleo some foods are. I use the tools and ingredients that are available to me in the Paleo spectrum and make stuff (very caveman-ish). I also just love the challenge of creating, or recreating recipes. Thats why when I found Enjoy Life Chocolate Mini Chips at a regular grocery store (and not overpriced) I had to find a recipe to celebrate with.
Paleohacks.com shared some great Paleo Cheat Day Recipies. I thought I would give one a try. I don't do cheat days BTW, I do a lot of IF (intermittent fasting). I have very limited time to get in my calories. So I like to enjoy those few hours without blowing my calorie and sugar intake. I am writing this as the bake, and now are cooling so it could turn out very badly.
I already had an almond yogurt today, you think I will turn into an almond if I have an almond cookie with almond milk? Here goes....Oh---my-- STARS! These are too good to be for real. Toddler approved too!
I modified the original recipe and used some of the optional alternatives that were given. I will note those for you so you know what I am raving about. For this I will be in red.
What I will do next time:
- Mix dry ingredients
- whisk eggs separately in a bowl, and then add the almond butter and vanilla
- add dry ingredients into wet, and then mix in your chocolate chips.
