Chocolate Chip Nut Cookies

058 light

Do you know what these are? They may very well be the best cookie you’ve ever had. No joke.

Almonds, pecans and walnuts are ground using a coffee grinder. I substituted a cup of this nut flour for some of the all-purpose flour, adding protein and tons of flavor to the traditional chocolate chip cookie.

The usual characters are used here. The sugar, the butter, the chocolate chips, but the stars of the show are the nuts.

This idea of adding ground or mashed nuts in recipes is not new here people, but it’s still amazing. I’ve done it in pancakes, in macaroni and cheese and french toast.

  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F.
