Almond Butter Cookies - vegan friendly


I'm back in baking action!! Wooohooo! We finally had a relaxing weekend where we weren't rushing around. Ahhhh did it feel good. One of the things I wanted to do this weekend was experiment with some jars of creamy almond butter that MaraNatha sent to me. I was so excited when they asked if I'd give their nut butters a try!! I heart nut butters!


I also heart PB cups... so I figured I'd make an inside out almond butter cup cookie as my first experiment :) This is for a small batch so totally double it unless you're making just enough for yourself and your sweetie :) Oh and a bonus, these are vegan!

Great recipe! Thanks for sharing this to us. I'm sure my wife and kid would surely love this for their daily snack. It would also go great with a hot cup of coffee, beans freshly ground from my new coffee grinder conical Please continue to share more recipes!

I added vanilla and omitted the cinnamon but I don't think I stirred my almond butter well enough because they were super oily when I was forming them. Still very tasty though!
