Chocolate Chunk Almond Cookies

I whipped up a batch of these the other day and took some to work. Based on the feedback I received; I’m here to tell you these are definitely a *must* make!

Think of these cookies if you will, as a kicked up version of your every day peanut butter cookie. But I mean seriously kicked up!

They are chockfull with chunky almond butter, cocoa powder, chocolate chunks, chocolate covered almond bits, you see where I’m going with this? They are a must make I tell you!
