These cookies.  I may be addicted.  No, actually I know I am.  They are so crispy, almond-nutty and chocolaty and those three things together… oh my, they are my favorite cookie to date.

You see I wanted to come up with some new Christmas Cookie recipes that are a bit more healthy.  I saw the fun Christmas themed M&M almond candies at the store and I thought… oh yeah those would be perfect in a chocolate chip cookie.

By using smart ingredients in my cookie like Almond Butter, Coconut sugar and Chocolate {yes, it is good for you} these cookies can be enjoyed almost guilt free. There is no flour {gluten}, butter or refined sugar in this recipe, giving it a bit of protein, and healthy fats.

This week has been gray, gray, gray and cold and rainy. Not worth leaving the house, but perfect for cooking, baking and baking and baking.  Yep, I have Tupperware containers stacked with cookies.  Now what.  What to do with all those delectable treats?

I know its a bit early to be baking like a crazy woman for the holidays, but I get in the mood to bake and it’s almost a compulsion.  It really is some kind of therapy, happy place for me. The only problem is, I have all those cookies when I am done.  Not good, especially these, they were the ones I kept sneaking because they satisfied the crunchy and chocolaty cravings.

I hope you give this recipe a try, you won’t be disappointed, and please take a pic of your crunchy creation and share it with me on twitter or Instagram.  Make sure you tag me @ahealhtylifeforme on Instagram and @AHLFM on twitter.  I love seeing your pics!
