Almond Flour Chocolate Chunk Cookie Recipe...and More.

Tuesday, September 15, 2015
You may have a problem if when your chiropractor tells you to take another week of running to let your pelvis heal, you start to cry right there in the office.

Yes, that's what I did.

I'm struggling with having limited exercise right now. It's such a big part of who I am and how I stay connected with myself on that good healthy level that keeps you from wanting to rip peoples heads off. I'm on full rest (meaning no exercise except walking) until Thursday, to give my pelvis a complete break. Then we will reassess.

So basically I've been volunteering to do all of the dogs walks for the past 2 days.

Even though I'm bummed...someone is still all smiles around here.



Lately I've been letting myself get too hungry during the day, and then I end up eating something that I immediately regret...like a massive, dirty and delicious eggplant parmesan sandwich. Were just so busy running to Aria's classes, appointments, cleaning and keeping up with other tasks to keep our house running, that I forget. And then I pillage the refrigerator like a Viking.

Maybe one day I'll be grown up enough to have the foresight to realize this ahead of time...and not eat the whole thing at one time. That's another part of this week's "limited exercise", that is killing me. I'm not one for limiting food. Yes, I eat healthy but I don't like counting calories or worrying about if I should eat something.
I love to run far...and I love to eat food....see where I'm going with this.
Please pass the dirty sandwiches.

In the spirit of tastey things, I wanted to share a recent favorite recipe as of lately...Almond Flour Chocolate Chunk Cookies.


They're so buttery and delicious!

This recipe is very easy and fast (15 min total). It's a good one for little hands to help with. It makes about 9 cookies.

Ingredients
1 cup Almond Meal or Almond Flour
1/4 tsp. Sea Salt
1/8 tsp. Baking Soda
1/4 tsp. of cinnamon
2 tsp. vanilla
3 tbsp. Melted Clarified Butter Ghee (Coconut Oil works great as well!!!)
2 tbsp. Agave
Chopped Chocolate Chunks at your discretion. We probably used about 2 tbsp. Not counting the handful Aria threw in after.

Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Mix almond flour/meal, salt, baking soda and cinnamon.
3. Stir in butter, agave and vanilla.
4. Stir in chopped chocolate.
5. Make dough into small cookies and place on parchment paper covered baking sheet.
6. Bake for 15 minutes.
7. Let them sit to cool for about 10 minutes. This is when they firm up.
8. Eat eat eat.

Enjoy your Tuesday everyone. And your cookies.
