Blueberry Almond Cookies (Advanced Plan)

This is my first blog...ever! I can not tell you how exciting it is to share recipes, ideas and photos that I know can help other people. Every recipe will be tagged as either Advanced Plan or Core Plan for those of you who are Maximized Living Patients eating a God Food Plan.

Strangely enough, my first recipe to share is not a cake....we have plenty of time to delve into delicious ooey-gooey cake recipes and will soon enough.  However, this recipe deserves to be first.  These cookies are worth keeping around for a quick snack at any given moment and will keep you from snacking on pre-packaged, sugar and chemical filled alternatives! 

Hint:  These will not work with store bought almond butter in a jar.  The oil separation will unfortunately make them fall apart.  The best option for this recipe is fresh ground almond butter available in tubs at many health food stores.
