Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookies

cookies

Cookies and Flowers. Is there any greater combination in this world? No. There isn’t.

Another great combination is walnuts and chocolate, just ask a brownie. There are a ton of nut butter cookie recipes out there and to my dismay, there weren’t any using walnut butter. So I decided to try one out myself.

These are very simple to make and if you have a food processor, you can make the nut butter at home. Walnuts have a ton of natural oils so the batter gets pretty oily. To make less oily batter, make a batch of half cashew/half walnut butter. Check out this post for a refresher on how to make nut butter!
