Almond Flour Chocolate chip cookies

With the launch of my book has come a lot of walking and talking about walking. I felt the need for some really good energy; some decadent almond and chocolate bites. My friend Carmen shared some of these with me on a hike in the Kananaskis a couple of weeks ago and since that day, I have been hooked. And so have my kids and my hubby. Very yummy. So on this cloudy day in Calgary, I baked up a batch.

And for all of you who eschew gluten and all things animal, these are perfect. You can grind your own almonds or take the easy way and buy ground almonds. I get mine at Community Health Foods.
