  • Beat together the next 4 ingredients.
  • Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and combine on low speed of mixer.
  • Add the almonds and chocolate chips.
  • Preheat oven to 325.
  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Using a spoon, scoop the dough in two lines down the length of the baking sheet (use two if you need to), keeping them about 3 inches apart.
  • They'll be about 12"- 14" X 2" strips.
  • Bake until firm and barley showing color, about 25-30 minutes.
  • Cool on rack 10 minutes.
  • Lower oven temperature to 300.
  • Take the strips and slice them cross-wise into about 1/2" slices.
  • Return to the baking sheet, and standing them upright with some space between them, bake for an additional 30-35 minutes until crisp and very light golden.
  • Cool and store in an air tight container.
