Notes

This is the result of trying to bake cookies with great friends. We did not have enough of anything in the pantry so improvised ingredients to create this wonderful, hearty cookie. I get my dried blueberries and almond flour from Trader Joe's, but I imagine Costco or Whole Foods carries them as well. I want to try adding white chocolate chips next time around.
