Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

This morning I woke up early to make the Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. They were so easy to make, I was convinced I did something wrong.  The recipe calls for Almond Butter, Sucanat, sea salt, 1 egg, baking soda and dark chocolate (that is at least 70% cocoa or greater).

Well, I don't know what sucanat is.  Add that to my list of unknowns.  There's an explanation in the book the Sucanat is some type of cane sugar.  Well, that's nice, but my grocery store doesn't carry it.  I did find some organic sugar that seemed to fit the same description of Sucanat, so I used that.  

The recipe also requests (I say requests because I really don't like to follow recipes) that you use a dark chocolate bar and cut it up.  I don't have time to spend chopping up a dark chocolate bar, so I opted to buy chocolate chips that met the same requirements.  Except, once again, my grocery store doesn't carry dark chocolate with 70% cocoa.  I settled for 65% and decided that was close enough.

Once the cookies cooled, I resisted approximately 23 seconds before I had to try one (who cares if it wasn't even 9am??).  Let me be frank: these are NOT chocolate chip cookies, that's for sure.  But they were still pretty good and I'm sure the remaining 23 cookies will be devoured in place of the cottage cheese snacks I'm supposed to be eating.
