Caleb’s Almond Butter-Chocolate Chip Cookies

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

1/2 cup soy-free, dairy-free chocolate chips

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.

    I’ve been meaning to make cookies with the kids, and it’s been a while. So your post was perfectly timed. My three year old and I just put them in the oven, and they look and smell good so far! I will suggest adding the water slowly. I used Mara Natha Almond Butter which may have been thinner than some other almond butters (I was able to pour it out of the jar) , so my batter was pretty moist before adding water. I only added about 1/4 cup of water and any more would ahve made it a little soupy. Also I was at the end of my honey, I so I only had 1/4 cup not the full 1/2 cup, and so I hoped with the added after the liquid ratios would be okay, but as I’m always fine with bless sweet treats. The batter tastes yummy!
    How fun that your son bakes and experiment on his own! I’ll be back soon to let you know how they pass the toddler taste test at my house!

    These were delicious!!! Yes they are sweet, but they would go great with a cup of coffee. :) It was difficult not eating the batter straight from the bowl ;) Good job Caleb!
