These not-too-sweet cookies are a little crispy around the edges and soft inside, studded with chocolate chips - sometimes with dried cranberries or currants. My husband and son usually eat them all in an afternoon. Great for kids' lunches, or a healthy accompaniment to an afternoon cup of tea. These cookies can be adapted to your family's taste in a variety of ways. Sometimes I will replace vanilla with almond extract, add in coconut flakes, nuts and/or dried fruit for a different flavor profile.

These were kid approved and good but not a typical chocolate chip cookie.... more so a tasty almond cookie with chocolate chips. I did run out of almond flour so had to sub in less than a cup of rice flour to make up the difference. Read More

Just like regular chocolate chip cookies. They're a little grainy and crumbly but still delicious. Read More

just for the cost of the almond flour i don't think i'd make these again. they were okay though, a bit cakey but not bad. also somehow i think they're more filling than regular cookies, i can have only a couple and feel pretty full. all in all i'm glad i tried this recipe, thanks for sharing it with us.
