chocolate chip cookies // dates + almond flour

Chocolate Chip Cookies // Dates + Almond Flour
Chocolate chip cookies are the number one dessert request in our house - hands down they are Justin's favorite cookie. He would have no problem eating cookies for breakfast, lunch and dinner....come to think of it he sometimes does. Years ago, when we first started dating he bought me a Kitchen Aide Stand Mixer under the one condition that I bake him chocolate chip cookies once a week. I didn't quite live up to that promise, it's more like once a month, sometimes every other week in the Fall + Winter months.


Chocolate Chip Cookies // Dates + Almond Flour
When baking chocolate chip cookies I like to experiment a bit // different combinations of flours and add ins mostly. I have had a bag of almond flour from NOW Foods that I haven't been quite sure what to do with - so I tossed  a bit into my standard cookie recipe, replacing the quick oats it calls for. I also had some dates on hand and thought why not - a couple, nicely chopped went in too.

It was a good call - for both equally. I love the caramel undertones of the dates and the almond flour gives nice structure to the cookies.

Justin prefers a softer cookie so I made this batch with brown sugar. Often times I will use a combination of brown sugar and white sugar for a crisper cookie. For a super crisp cookie you can use straight up white sugar.

Since we moved I cannot tell you how many times I have relocated my box of homemade Pure Vanilla Extract...now I can't find it. Since I ran out about a month ago and can't find my stash, I have bee relying on my ground vanilla from Laza that I received in my Globe In Box - it has been a lifesaver.

Mini chocolate chips, chocolate chips or a chopped up chocolate bar work in this recipe. I just so happened to have a bag of mini chips on hand so that is what I used.

The nice thing about these cookies, they bake up in no time - perfect for when you want to surprise someone you love with a plate full of cookies.

  49. These days, it is tough to manage both studies with management assignments and students are given an enormous amount of tasks altogether with a due date. We can't deny that these assignments are time-consuming and get added to your academic points. Taking a management assignment help online not only lessens your burden but also helps you get more time to prepare for your exams. Also, students get a significant amount of pressure to complete both assignments and studies for their academic year. Time management becomes an essential issue in their life, so taking professional management assignment help online from a reliable site would help them complete their assignments on time. As it will be done professionally, there's a higher chance of getting better marks in their academic field.
