"Healthy" Chocolate Chip Cookies......don't be frightened

A far cry from my normal fare, these are actually healthy. Or as healthy as a chocolate chip cookie can be. I admit, I have been off sugar for 2 weeks today (with one discrepancy on girls night out), so these may taste better to me because of that. Any-who, they are a great "clean eating" recipe for satisfying the sweet tooth. Just make them under supervision, they are still 110 calories apiece :)

Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup Almond Butter
3/4 cup Sucanat
1 large egg
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
3 oz DARK chocolate (70% cocoa or greater), broken into small pieces

Preheat oven to 350. In a medium bowl, stir first five ingredients until blended. Stir in chocolate.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes, then for 15 minutes on wire rack

Where do you get your sucanat? And almond butter? Sounds fabulous.

I get the sucanat at Akins Health food store on Memorial and Penn.
