>Almond Butter Cookies

Posted on

>In the spirit of using up ingredients I have (and staying healthier) I decided to make some Almond Butter Cookies. I found an unopened jar of raw almond butter that expires at the end of next month in my pantry. I also discovered a ridiculous amount of spelt flour that I had forgotten about. I don’t think I’ve ever made cookies with spelt flour before; but considering I found these ingredients; I wasn’t worried about the possibility of this recipe failing.
Not only did the recipe not fail; but the cookies were AMAZING. In retrospect; you could probably skip melting the coconut oil and just cream the sugar with it; but that’s not what I did.

Almond Butter Cookies:
sift together and set aside in a small bowl:
1 c spelt flour
1/3 c ground raw almonds (i food processed mine to powder)
1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t salt

1/2 c raw sugar
1T agave
1T maple syrup
3/4 t almond extract
1/4 t vanilla
3T almond milk
3 T melted coconut oil
1/2 c raw crunchy almond butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone slip mat if you’re into that sort of thing (I’m not, so I didn’t).

Mix together in a large bowl until emulsified: sugar, agave, maple syrup, extracts, almond milk, coconut oil and almond butter.
Stir in dry ingredients until combined. Do not overmix.
Scoop by rounded off tablespoon onto cookie sheet; you should be able to fit 15 cookies on your sheet (and use all your batter). Do not flatten the cookies.
Bake for 9-10 minutes. Your cookies should come out soft. Let them sit for 10 minutes before removing them from the cookie sheet.

Enjoy!

I'm a reader, a food lover, a crazy cat lady, an animal lover, local shopper and local music supporter. You can find me in East Nashville most of the time, shopping, having a drink at a locally owned bar, or eating food at a local restaurant. I like cumin and smoked paprika way more than I should, winter squashes make me happy, and while I do like most fruits, I only *love* berries and mangoes. I'd rather have salty snacks than sweets, and the darker chocolate is, the better. I still think Earth Balance is the best fake butter, Vegenaise is the best vegan mayo, and Almond Milk tastes better than soy milk. Chia seeds are my favorite egg substitute for the most part, and pumpkin tends to bind better than applesauce-especially in chocolate goods. I know a lot about food and nutrition, but that doesn't mean I'm the healthiest person. I tend to avoid eating out because I know I can make food that tastes better at home.
