Almond Butter Cookie Recipe

Recipes, Sweets | November 8, 2015 | By

I’m not saying that I’m addicted to almond butter, but I’m also not denying that I would sell my soul for an unlimited supply (have you seen the price recently!?) Okay, you’ve caught me; almond butter is life. Familiar with the documentary “Forks Over Knives“? My version is called “Spoons Over Forks” because of how often I’m shoveling the almondy-goodness out by the mouthful. Smothered on toast with banana, it has been my go-to snack for as long as I can remember.. This almond butter cookie recipe is merely another way for me to get my fix 😉

With all this adoration, how is it that I have never made an almond butter cookie recipe!?

Peanut butter cookies are everywhere! What about talmond butter cookie recipe pressed downhe peanut butter haters? Folks with peanut-allergies!? Are they expected to be left out forever? Nay, I tell you! Fix ’em up with this delicious almond butter cookie recipe! Tall, soft, insanely easy to make, even easier to eat cinnamon-deliciousness that delivers it all! The banana flavor was a little stronger than I’d like, try it without (or simply add more almond butter) and let me know how they turn out!

Serves 1-2 cookies
