- 2 cups almond butter
- 1-1/4 cups brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a couple of baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Add everything except for the chocolate chips to a large mixing bowl and mix on medium speed until smooth and creamy.
- Stir in the chocolate chips.
- Scoop out large balls of dough (about 2 tablespoons worth) and place on the baking sheets two inches apart.
- Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the cookies are slightly brown at the edges. Remove the cookies and let them cool on the baking sheets.
- Parchment paper works better for these cookies than non-stick spray
- The cookies store well in an airtight container for 5 to 6 days or in the freezer for 6 months.
- Make sure you let the cookies cool down on the baking sheets before transferring them. They will break easily while they are still warm.
- I use a cookie scoop to portion and scoop the cookie dough easily. A large cookie scoop looks like a miniature ice cream scoop and holds about 2 tablespoons of dough. Perfectly portioned cookies!
- The consistency of the dough will change depending on the brand of almond butter you use. A dry, firm almond butter will result in dry, slightly crumbly dough and fatter cookies. An almond butter that is a little more moist and oily will create a dough that holds together easier and a cookie that spreads out flatter.
- If the dough feels a little dry and crumbly, just squeeze the balls of dough together.
