Clean Eating Cookies

I picked up a Clean Eating magazine to do a little research for Camp Endeavor and because I’ve heard a lot about this book/diet/magazine and never looked into it. I was actually expecting a very high protein, veggies and fruit diet (no carbs or sugar) but it was much more balanced than I thought! I might even subscribe to it!

Since my last baking success, I’ve been on the lookout for new recipes like never before. Bread is next but I needed one more success before tackling something so scary. I have a serious fear of yeast people. I also had been on the lookout for a “healthier” cookie. This cookie fit the bill and I actually had all of the ingredients on hand (which means it is a very short and basic list). The cookies did not disappoint. But then again, what’s disappointing about chocolate and peanut butter?

Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies adapted from Clean Eating

  • 1 cup unsalted almond butter (I used peanut butter because I was out of almond)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 oz dark chocolate, chopped into pieces

Pre-heat oven to 350°F. In a medium bowl, stir together first 5 ingredients until blended. Stir in chocolate.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes and let cool 15 more minutes.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen that magazine. Which is odd because I’m a magazine junky! From what I’ve read I like the concept of it, will have to find it next time I’m at the store.

    I subscribe to Clean Eating magazine and I look forward to it more than Cooking Light! It is filled with great balanced meals and ideas for just one person or a family! I really like their cookbook too. Check it out! It is put out by Tosca Reno and has some great ideas and things you can modify! :)

    yeast isn’t so scary – just don’t overthink it :) I ruined bread trying to figure out the right temperature of water to dissolve the yeast in – then I learned to just use your finger and when it starts to feel warm, it’s perfect. I’ve had great bread since! :)

    oooooo . . . flourless nut butter cookies! Yum.

    If you ever want to join in on a little “Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day” friendly baking, I have a small group going with a couple other bloggers. Easiest homemade bread, I swear!
