    3. Add butter and almond milk and stir until crumbs form. Use your hands to knead the dough until it’s lump-free.
    4. Roll dough into 10 balls before flattening and shaping with hands. Lay cookies on a tray lined with non-stick paper.
    5. Press choc chunks on top of cookies and bake for 6-8min (longer baking time = crunchier cookies and chewier cookies will be soft when first removed from oven)
    6. Allow to cool completely and enjoy!
