Dark Choco Almond Butter Cookies

Thoughts before baking:

So my cubicle at work was the kind of placeholder for objects, until I was hired. Subsequently I have a broken printer, an out of date phone, and a ton of boxes throughout the space. One day I was going through the boxes, looking for the perfect one to store some things and I found this recipe on a Vitacost box. They sounded good and are gluten-free, dairy-free, and low in calories. So I thought, let’s make them!

They were delicious!

I thought they tasted great and ate a bunch. My niece didn’t like them as she thought they weren’t sweet enough and the texture of the almond butter was strange, but I loved them. I will definitely be making these in the future.

Now I know not everyone likes rice cakes. In fact, when most people think of rice cakes they think of  this:

family-guy-rice-cake-o

But I love them.

So as I just reviewed the book A Stitch Before Dying, where the Black Sheep Knitting group find themselves in a Health Spa full of only healthy food, so I thought “Hey, what better time then to review this healthy recipe?”

I found this great recipe on Pinterest. It was on the blog Deliciously OrganizedOf course when I took the recipe, I made it my own.
