Small tweaks can make a big impact. Maybe you’ve gotten this advice from a personal trainer or dietitian, who encouraged you to take baby steps toward a larger goal. As true and useful as that notion is for creating long-lasting health habits, it’s equally true for your desserts. Think of it this way: Baking a batch of chocolate chip cookies is really just doing more of the same. But you could make one small change to the recipe – like adding walnuts – and have an entirely new cookie in your jar. Now, that advice doesn’t sound so nutty, does it?
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In large bowl, combine all ingredients except almond milk. Stir until well combined.
- Slowly add milk until mixture forms a sticky dough consistency.
- Fold in dark chocolate chips and walnuts.
- Roll cookie dough into one-tablespoon-sized balls and place on a non-stick baking sheet. Use your fingers or the back of a spoon to flatten dough into cookie shape.
- Bake about 12 minutes, or until edges begin to turn golden.
