Okay, who am I kidding, peanut butter cookies are so great too. If you can’t decide between these almond butter cookies or peanut butter, how about these almond flour peanut butter cookies?
Yup, mind blown, I know.
But if you’re still with me, let’s talk about these almond butter cookie.
You’ll need only 5 ingredients to make these:
- a flax or chia egg
- almond butter (homemade or store bought)
- unrefined coconut sugar
- baking powder
How do you make almond butter cookies?
First prepare your flax or chia egg and set aside while you gather the remaining ingredients.
Preheat your oven, line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and then combine all 5 ingredients in a mixing bowl.
Mix well, and drop tablespoons of the batter onto your baking sheet.
Then using a fork, gently press down on each cookie to make a crisscross pattern, and bake. If your fork is sticking to the cookies, wet the fork slightly after pressing every few cookies or so.
Once your cookies are baked, let them rest at room temperature for about 10 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.
You may enjoy these cookies warm or cooled to room temperature. Either way, they’re seriously amazing! Try them. 🙂
Almond butter cookies are:
- oil free
- sweet (but refined sugar free) with subtle hints of salt
- gluten free
- firm yet crumbly like you’d expect from butter cookies (with no butter of course!)
- perfect for dunking!
