Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Cookie Recipe
These are so easy to make and only 7 ingredients!
- 2 Cups of Almond Meal
- 2 Eggs, beaten
- 1 Tbsp of butter
- 1 Tbsp of Maple Syrup
- 1 Tbsp of Vanilla
- ½ Cup of Cream Cheese
- 6 tbsp of Dark Chocolate Chips
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees and line your cookie sheet with parchment paper.
The original recipe called for whipped cream cheese but I used block because it was on sale. ?
I beat that with my Kitchen Aid Mixer, which is not ideal for the job. If you have a hand mixer use that. I don’t so I used what I had. I just held the bowl up so the mixer could reach the bottom of the bowl.
Next, add in everything else. I hand mixed this with a fork. Add enough Almond Meal to get the right consistency. These are not moldable cookies.
In fact, they are more liquid and you might think they are not going to turn out. I gently spread them around to the size I wanted.
Spoon your cookies out on your cookie sheet. I choose large sized cookies and since I was still clearly remembering my last two fails, I chose 4 cookies with zero chance of running into each other.
I baked mine for 20 minutes and let them rest for 5.
I made a total of 8 BIG cookies! They were worth the wait! Not sweet at all, but so good.
AND zero aftertaste! Yay!!
