I love it when people taste my desserts and say, “Wow—this is pareve!?”
It’s the same rule with Passover dishes and desserts. Which is why I am on a never-ending search for the perfect Passover desserts that are good enough to eat all year and just happen to also be Passover-friendly.
In one of my searches I came across this recipe for Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies which I realized could easily be made Passover-friendly just by swapping out the peanut butter for almond butter. I adjusted a few ingredients and the result is a super tasty, chewy cookie that is good enough to enjoy all year. Your guests are sure to ask incredulously, “Are you sure these are for Passover?” Truly the ultimate compliment.
1 cup almond butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
thick sea salt (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together almond butter, egg, brown sugar and vanilla.
Fold in chocolate chips and walnuts.
Spoon out tablespoon-sized mounds onto ungreased cookie sheet. Sprinkle with pinch of thick sea salt on top if desired.
Bake for 11 minutes, and then allow to cool for 5 minutes while cookies remain on the baking sheet. Transfer to baking rack to cool completely.
