cherry & dark chocolate almond butter cookies

How many of you have actually tried to find a sweet that is high in protein, low in sugar, and tastes good? If you’re picturing a Clif or Luna Bar, you’re wrong. Twenty-two grams of sugar is not low. Lucky for you, I have compromise – in the form of cookies that are easy to make, packed with protein, and even have fruit that isn’t from concentrate. Enter the cherry & dark chocolate almond butter cookie.


1 cup almond butter

1 large egg

1/2 cup light brown sugar (lightly packed, as in all baking recipes)

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

1/2 cup fresh tart cherries

1 – Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

2 – Mix the egg, almond butter, baking soda and brown sugar in bowl

3 – Add the chocolate chips and cherries; lightly mix

4 – Shape your cookies and place on pan

5 – Bake for 7-10 minutes; and do not over bake. Trust me, these babies are infinitely better underdone

6 – Forget about the gym; you haven’t actually consumed that much sugar

P.s.: I apologize for the lack of photos in my recent posts. It seems I am stranded in Ohio without my trusty camera (or memory stick, for that matter). More photos to come — I promise!
