I went to Target for a couple small Christmas gifts. I came out with no Christmas gifts, $50 worth of things I didn’t really “need”, and these new high heels ;). And then I went home and wore my new high heels while baking these cookies. Baking cookies in heels. It’s what all the cool kids are doing ;). But I mean, aren’t they cute? And so versatile – at least that’s how I convinced myself I needed them haha.

I’ve posted a couple recipes with almond butter (Maple Almond Butter Cookies, Nutella Cupcakes with Triple Cream Cheese Frosting, Nutella Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Treats and a brand comparison) and when I thought about chocolate almond butter cookies I knew it’d be a winning combination. So I whipped up a batch in my new heels and dropped them off at Jordan’s work. He said they were a hit and didn’t bring any home so I’d say this recipe is a keeper for sure! Enjoy!

Chewy Double Chocolate Almond Butter Cookies
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup Hershey’s Special Dark cocoa powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp instant espresso powder
1/2 cup butter, softened
1-1/2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup almond butter
2 tbsp golden flaxseed meal plus 6 tbsp water (or 2 eggs but I didn’t have any eggs)
1 tbsp vanilla
2 cups Hershey’s special dark semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
2. In bowl of stand mixer combine butter, sugar, and almond butter until light and fluffy. Add flaxseed and water (or eggs) and beat until combined. Add vanilla and mix until combined.
3. In separate bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, and espresso powder. Add dry ingredients to butter/sugar mixture and mix just until combined. Be careful not to overmix. Stir in chocolate chips. Cover dough and refrigerate 30 minutes to an hour.
4. Scoop chilled dough using a #60 scoop onto prepared baking sheets. Bake for 7 minutes or until edges just begin to set. (The centers will not look done.) Cool 2-3 minutes on baking sheets before transferring to wire racks to cool completely. Makes 6-1/2 dozen cookies.
