Almond Flour Cookies with Chocolate Chips

We humans are complex creatures. Not just because we can think of myriad of things out of thin air and make it reality but because of the exact opposite. We are at constant battle with our own nature that has been shaped by hundreds of thousands of years of evolution before we left the garden of Eden.

Yeah, one bite of knowledge threw us out of blessed ignorance and set us onto the path to gain conscience and grow a neocortex. Unfortunately or blessedly our primitive brain didn’t go away and saved us from many imminent dangers that roamed the lands until we finally figured out how to kill them all.

This part of our brain is buggering us to go and find food instead of just staring at the clouds or drawing imaginary lines between the stars.

Not like drawing lines or staring at clouds wouldn’t be a useful activity, otherwise how Christopher Columbus could have found America or Moana delivered the heart of Te Fiti?

Luckily, our primitive instinct driven brain doesn’t have high demands and if it is about pleasure, our thinking brain can do its own business. It’s a bit like having a baby. When they are fed, cleaned and played with, they can go to sleep and leave us a bit of freedom to do great deeds.

Well, at least sort of. It’s not accidental that primary caretakers of the society haven’t had much chance to get into the history books. The heart of the kitchen -be it as dangerous as it is sometimes- fills different kind of books with pages.

Interestingly, we value or at least celebrate more deeds that has been done once in a while than constant efforts over a long time. We can blame our brain lack of capacity to store memories over long periods and selecting only the most relevant ones for long term storage.

This is the very reason we have to have days to celebrate such mundane things as Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or even birthdays. Marking the occasions with out of ordinary things that helps us differentiate one day from the other.

These are the days for cakes, flowers and power tools. Dads got electric screwdrivers, mothers flowers and birthday boys and girls birthday cakes. It seems that One must observe proper rites.

Without rites we wouldn’t know when to get our hearts ready to greet each other. Nor that if we should bake a cake or make a do with some humble cookies.

Cookies never get the credit for being there for us anytime we are in need. They are forgotten like moms, the rest of Columbus’ life or Father’s Day in general. But they are there for us throughout the years, making the unbearable lighter the difficult easier and our mood sweeter.

There are many types of cookies all around the world but all of them fall on the easy and reliable recipe category. Almond flour cookies are no different. We used banana as a healthy natural sweetener which also provided a softer texture for the cookies.

If we are on a special low carb diet, then banana can be substituted with any other type of sweetener without any problem. It will be a slightly different textured cookie but still have all the care and chocolate chips in it!Almond-flour-cookies-with-chocolate-chips-4-SunCakeMom
