Date Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies











     I had the special treat of a leisurely morning combined with some chopped Dates and freshly ground Almond Meal that were calling my name !!!  So what started as a small single person cookie turned into an entire batch of yumminess to share with others !!!  ... and when things got out of control I had no choice but to throw in some Carob Chips as the perfect finishing touch !!! ( I was a good girl and only ate two) This batch made 16-2 inch cookies, and each cookie has 43 calories, 3.38g carbs, and 4.5g protein.  Enjoy guilt free  ;)

Ingredients~
1/2 cup plus 3 Tablespoons liquid Egg Whites
3oz Fuji Apple diced
Dash Vanilla
2 Tablespoons fresh ground Almond Meal ( simply grind Almonds in your Magic Bullet til meal like)
2 Tablespoons Whole Husk Psyllium
1/2 cup Whey Better Vanilla Ice Cream Protein Powder
2 Tablespoons Coconut Flour
1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
Dash Salt
Dash Cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped Dates
1 Tablespoon Grain Sweetened Organic Carob Chips

     In Magic Bullet, blend Apple, Egg Whites and Vanilla til liquid and smooth, set aside.  Combine the rest of the ingredients in a bowl and pour the liquid mixture on top and stir to combine.  Let rest 15 minutes to thicken.  Drop by rounded teaspoon onto Silpat lined Cookie Sheet, should yield 16 cookies.  Bake at 325 for 12 minutes.  I hope you love the combining of Dates, Chocolate and Almonds as much as I do!  Enjoy  ;)
