Basic Almond Butter Cookies

Another plus to this cookie: you can totally make them your own! Add a chocolate square like the one in the picture, use a different nut butter for a slightly different flavor (like chocolate almond butter from Wild Friends, add chocolate chips, top with coconut flakes, or top with literally anything else! Disclaimer: I have never timed these cookies. They definitely don’t need more than 20 minutes in the oven, so just keep an eye on them. They rise quickly and turn the most perfect golden brown. Also, a little under-baked and soft never hurt anyone, especially when the chocolate addition just melts in your mouth. They stay perfect in the fridge for about a week, but I promise you you won’t need them to last that long anyway.

You know that fool proof recipe, the one that you can always rely on last minute to be ready in under twenty minutes and taste delicious? Well, this is mine! Whenever I need to bake something for a group of friends, pack a cute present for a relative, or even just add something sweet to my meal preps, I use this one! They always turn out light and fluffy, have no added sugar, and are gluten and dairy free. So they work for literally any type of eater. Another plus: I can almost guarantee you have these ingredients in your pantry. There is nothing fancy in them so they don’t require you to start a second job just to feed your cookie addiction (we all have that addiction let’s be real.



  • 1/4 cup almond butter

  • 1 egg

  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour

  • pinch baking soda

  • 2 tablespoons apple sauce

  • Enjoy Life Foods chocolate chips

Optional ingredients to top each cookie:

  • chocolate chips

  • chocolate squares

  • coconut flakes

  • banana slices

  • strawberry slices

  • sea salt

I wish I could say I took the time to separate the wet and dry ingredients, but there were so few I just went for it! So:

  1. Combine ingredients and mix well

  2. Pour into the size you want (they spread and rise a little so leave room between each cookie)

  3. Top each cookie or leave them plain!

  4. Bake at 350 until totally risen and golden brown
