These Almond Butter Cookies are not only healthy, but they are made with simple ingredients, crispy and delicious too. They are so versatile and can be prepared so many different ways. Everyone's favorite cookie, all year long!
Almond Butter Cookies
These cookies are made with all natural ingredients, but taste delicious at the same time. My kids could not get enough of these!
And the funny thing is they claim that they don't even like almond butter.
Sometimes it's just easier not to argue about stuff and let them think that they don't like almond butter, even though clearly they do.
These are also naturally gluten free as well and can be made with any nut butter or even seed butter if you would like. Go ahead and make my Cinnamon Vanilla Pecan Butter or Sunflower Seed Butter or my homemade Coconut Almond Butter and make these cookies with them.
Why You Should Make These Almond Butter Cookies
These are one of my favorite treats when I want something sweet but want to still eat healthy and clean. Which is exactly why I keep them in my house at all times.
Not only are they so simple to make with easy to find ingredients, but they freeze really well too.
I usually make a double batch and freeze half of them for an easy, convenient treat. And sometimes we just eat them straight out of the freezer.
I love that these are dairy free, gluten free and allergy friendly which makes them perfect to bring to parties and gatherings.
I made these for a friend whose family is dairy free due to dairy intolerance. Those who suffer from this experience gas, bloating, pain and cramps in the lower stomach and maybe even vomiting.
Adapting to a dairy free lifestyle may require some extra work, but can be quite manageable once you change your eating habits. I wanted to show them that you can still eat healthy (and dairy free) and still eat yummy treats!
You can use chocolate chips if you'd like but they taste just as delicious. I will say though, I do love the texture of the added chocolate chips.
You can easily substitute Monk fruit for the unrefined sugar to make these sugar free, low carb and keto friendly as well. These cookies are so customizable.
I mentioned above that they freeze really well. If you are looking to control your portions and prevent overeating, I like to place them into individual plastic bags (or an airtight container) and freeze them separately so I can just pull out one (or two) when I want one!
