Well, search no further. This is, literally, the best cookie I’ve ever tasted or made (of the chocolate chip variety). And good news to all you gluten-avoiders: it’s got no flour in it!
“Oh, geez.” you may say, “Another one of these silly ‘healthy’ desserts. Desserts aren’t supposed to be healthy. Stop trying!”
Well, I promise you, that’s usually what I say. Don’t mess with a good thing and all that. I mean, if I’m going to ingest sugar, it had better be as tasty as it possibly can be. HOWEVER, in this situation, it works excellently. The recipe replaces wheat with almond flour, and the absence of gluten makes for an extraordinarily tender cookie. These are more on the crunchy side of the spectrum, but they are by no means hard. They’re a little like shortbread – melt in your mouth.
Seriously, you have to try these – if you’re not converted – well, I don’t know what to say… Recipe
