Almond Butter Cookies

I made these scrumptious cookies yesterday and was so pleased how they turned out I just had to share the recipe with you! These cookies are full of fiber, omega’s (healthy fats) and sweetened with maple syrup. Best of all they are super easy to make! I guarantee they won’t last long in your house!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup almond butter
1/2 cup maple syrup ( I used grade B syrup)
3 Tbsp safflower oil
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 cup spelt flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup almonds, chopped (walnuts would work great too!)
1/2 cup gluten free chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 350.
In a large bowl, mix together almond butter, maple syrup, oil and vanilla extract.
In a separate bowl, blend together flour, baking soda and salt.
Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir until just combined.
Fold in the chopped almonds and chocolate chips.
Refridgerate the dough for at least an hour.
Roll heaping tablespoons of dough into balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Flaten balls with your hand or the back of a spoon. Bake for 10-12mins, until edges are slightly golden brown.

Happy Baking!
