Mother's Day is around the corner (3 weeks away!) and we're pretty sure that no mom in their right mind would say no to this delicious and healthy treat!
This recipe is from our Wellness Remodel Challenge and was BY FAR our participants favorite from week 1. A cookie? In a healthy eating meal plan? You bet!
SKILLET ALMOND BUTTER & DARK CHOCOLATE COOKIE
1 cup smooth almond butter
1/3 cup honey
1 large egg
1 large egg white
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 Tablespoons flaxseed meal
¼ cup almond flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon sea salt
½ cup dark chocolate chips (like the Enjoy Life brand), divided
½ cup fresh berries for serving
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Over low heat, spray an 8- to 10-inch skillet with coconut oil spray. Add almond butter and stir with a spatula until melted and smooth. Stir in honey until well blended. Shut off the heat and let cool for about 10 minutes. Once cooled, mix in the egg, egg white, vanilla and flaxseed meal, then stir until smooth. Finally, blend in the almond flour, baking soda and salt. Smooth out the batter evenly on the bottom of the skillet with your spatula. Stir in 2/3 of the chocolate chips and add the remaining on top.
Transfer to the oven and bake for 15-18 minutes. Let cool slightly, cut into wedges and top with fresh berries before serving.
