Here is my go-to recipe when I want something sweet. It is Almond Butter Cookies made without any grains or dairy.
Almond butter cookies without grain or dairy
- 1 cup of almond butter
- 3/4 cup of sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 egg
- pinch of sea salt
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Mix all ingredients.
- Form little cookies and place them on the cooking tray.
- Once the oven is ready, cook for 12 to 14 minutes. All ovens are different.
- Let cookies cool for at least 10 minutes.
That is it. This is a super simple recipe that is hard to screw up. You can add chocolate chips if you like, I found they dominate the almond butter flavor. You can also add cinnamon, but anything more than 1/4 teaspoon will make the cookies taste too much like cinnamon cookies.
The original recipes did not use salt and had less sugar. In baking, I learned that sugar not only provides sweetness but helps baked items retain moisture. The result is the cookies are a little less dry and crumbly now. The salt accents the flavor and is considered an essential tool for baking.
