Me thinks making cookie butter out of chocolate chip cookies will taste like sunshine lollipops and rainbows, but with half the calories. Me right.
- 1 cup raw almonds
- 1 cup crushed chocolate chip cookies (I use Chocolate Chip Olive Oil Cookies)
- ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
- pinch salt
- sweetener to taste (I use 2 teaspoons erythritol)
