This healthy high protein version of the ultimate classic cookie is made from almond flour and speckled with sliced almonds. Easy to make and even easier to eat, enjoy for dessert, or use as a post workout snack to boost your energy.

- In a medium bowl combine grapeseed oil, agave and vanilla

- Fold in chocolate chips and almond slices
- Spoon dough 1 heaping tablespoon at a time onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet, pressing down with palm of your hand to flatten
- Bake at 350°F for 7 to 10 minutes, until lightly golden
- Cool cookies on the baking sheets for 20 minutes, then serve
Sleep is one of my favorite activities and has been key to my healing endeavors. I sleep a lot and I love it. So, today was very interesting. I arrived on set at 3:30 am to do a series of interviews about my favorite superfood (almonds) and had my green mint tea in hand to help me be wide awake –coffee doesn’t really agree with my body.
Working with the Almond Board of California to promote healthy eating has been more than fun!
I’m also really looking forward to tomorrow and continuing my almond tour; I’ll be doing a book signing (and offering samples of my high protein, gluten free, dairy free Chocolate Chip Cookies) at Erewhon, here in Los Angeles. Hope to see you there!
