Vegan Almond Chocolate Cookies

Vegan Almond Chocolate Cookies

Although I fancy a rather healthy organic diet and lifestyle, I find it hard sometimes to stop myself from overindulging. I just L O V E chocolate. And wine. Not particularly in that order;) So I'm always looking for healthier alternatives and ways to cut calories.

I believe in balance and a certain consciousness when it comes to where to buy your food. I don't necessarily live a vegan, dairy or gluten free diet. But I like to integrate some of these delicious and smart food ideas into my diet. It all started a few years ago when I was looking for a breakfast snack that I could eat on my way to yoga class. I just started experimenting and came up with a recipe for a protein rich and gluten free almond flax cake (recipe will follow). And my passion for healthy baking was born. 

There are a lot of great recipes for vegan cookies on the internet. But I noticed that most of them require a food processor or dehydrator (neither of which I own). I'm pretty lazy in the kitchen and like to keep it as simple as possible. So I just experimented a little bit. These Almond Chocolate cookies came out so good. And they're filling and nutrient rich too!

I prefer a less sweet taste so I reduce the measurements of the agave sometimes. If you don't follow a vegan diet you can use honey instead. Follow this recipe or get creative and add whatever you like. But don't forget to share your pics or ideas with me!
