COOKIE SEASON IS IN FULL SWING and this year I participated in the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap! It's a great cause for Cookies for Kids' Cancer, by which great brands match donations for the cause. In the meantime, bloggers get to network and trade cookies! This is the recipe I developed which is a flourless chocolate hazelnut cookie. If you've made a flourless peanut butter cookie - this is an off-shoot to that using almond butter and cocoa powder. It's really simple and versatile, oh and delicious. How could chocolate and hazelnut not be? I've also brought these on numerous pot lucks this season and they are a crowd pleaser!

INGREDIENTS

makes 1 dozen

  • 1 cup almond butter

  • handful of raw hazelnuts, roughly chopped

DIRECTIONS

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350f degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

  3. Add chopped hazelnuts and fold into the batter.
  4. Scoop cookies onto the parchment paper and bake for approx. 12 minutes.
  5. Let cookies cool on a drying rack for 5 minutes and serve!
