Vegan Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies (Recipe)

Posted on : May 21st, 2020

Today’s recipe comes courtesy of our friends at Blissful Basil, the place to go for wonderful, healthy, plant-based recipes! I got a kick out of her reason for not including this recipe in her cookbook: “Does the world really need another chocolate chip cookie recipe?” Well, maybe not, but a vegan almond butter chocolate chip cookie? Sure! Why not?

The reason this appealed to me today is because I haven’t found regular flour in the grocery store lately because of the country’s new-found obsession with home baking! But, because I went through a short-lived gluten-free experiment for awhile, I have an unusual amount of alternative flours, like oat flour, on my shelves (and so did Trader Joe’s!). Plus I thought I’d experiment with coconut sugar when I saw that regular sugar was temporarily out at the grocery store. It turns out that is quite good.

If you can’t find oat flour at the store, that’s not a big deal. You must have oatmeal on your shelf, don’t you? Just grind that up to something resembling flour in a coffee grinder. The extra coffee in there doesn’t even have to be cleaned out—that flavor would go nicely in this recipe if you can taste it at all.

You need another fun baking project to do, right? Have fun!
