A few days ago I just had the sudden craving for cookies and chocolate milk. The two were made for one another, ya know?
So guess what? I made cookies and chocolate milk.
The recipe is super simple, healthy, and delicious. Kinda takes you all the way back to your childhood.
..which isn't far for me. I’m kinda still a child actually. At least I feel that way.
You just mix the dough together and bake it. Then whisk together your chocolate milk. Then just partake of the goodness.
Now obviously you could just go to the store and buy some chocolate almond milk. And then try not to look at how much sugar and other bad ingredients are listed on the carton. Or you could simply chocolate-ify your own almond milk and actually know what good ingredients went into it.
And I haven’t even mentioned the wholesome and basic ingredients in these low-sugar cookies.
Something about the subtle almond flavor really gets me. I really love it. And the cool chocolate milk just really complements these warm, soft cookies so nicely.
Almond Cookies with Chocolate Milk
For the cookies:
- 1/4 stick softened butter
- 2 T maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 tsp almond extract
- 1 egg
- 1 cup blanched almond flour
- 1 T coconut flour
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
For the chocolate milk:
- 1 cup almond milk
- 2 tsp cocoa powder
- 1 T maple syrup
- splash of vanilla
Combine butter, maple syrup, vanilla, almond extract, and egg in a medium-sized bowl. Mix well. Now mix up your dry ingredients (almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, and salt) in a small bowl. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Scoop the cookies in spoonfuls onto a parchment-lined cookies sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
Now for the chocolate milk: start with the maple syrup and cocoa powder in a cup. Vigorously stir the two together. Add in the vanilla and combine. Next stir in the milk until smooth.
