Chocolate Almond Blossom Cookies {Gluten Free}

Hello friends and happy Friday! It has been a crazy few weeks over here in CRG land.  My plate has been a bit more full and that balancing act sometimes wears me out…lol
The last 2 weeks my site has been going through some issues, but they are all fixed now (yahoo), so I am finally back for a Foodie Friday!
A few weeks ago the Hubs was wanting a cookie.  I didn’t really have time to make my sugar cookies, or have all the ingredients for chocolate chip cookies, so I did a little digging around pinterest and got inspired to make my own version of peanut butter blossom cookies.  The hubs was wanting something with chocolate in it, and I decided to try using my homemade chocolate almond butter (you can also use store bought).
They came out better than expected! I was really pleased with the texture and the flavor was a nice balance of almond butter and chocolate.

I am linking up with my fav Foodie Friday gals, Farrah from Fairyburger and Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama.

    Oh, yum! My husband’s favorite cookies are peanut butter cookies that look like this! Personally, I prefer chocolate chip, but this recipe is a good compromise.
