Cookies are the easiest desserts to make though not so common in India. Just a few simple ingredients and then bake them. I believe no matter what the other ingredients, choclate makes any cookie yummilicious effortlessly. Usually cookies need a lot of butter but here I have not even used margarine but raw whole almonds instead of any processed nut butter. Also I have used dates instead of sugar for sweetness and binding.
This is truly one of the healthiest choclate cookies which you can eat guilt free and its gluten free too! It can be eaten as a snack, dessert or even breakfast. I have paired it with some caramel sauce which I received as a gift in a cooking workshop at Kalaghoda festival. Some day I will try making it too at home. Caramel should taste awesome with cakes too just as it does with my cookies.
