Almond Butter Cookie Recipe!

I’d like to blame my baking obsession on the holidays… but that wouldn’t be fair, since this isn’t really a seasonal thing. So last night I decided to make some Almond Butter Cookies. These cookies are sweet, soft, and have a subtle hint of maple. SO delicious. Oh, and did I mention they’re vegan? Let’s do it:

Almond Butter Cookies

  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup whole wheat  flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds

It’s really one of those, throw all of those ingredients in a bowl, shape into cookies, and bake at 350 for ~8-10 minutes. I could make it sound more complicated than that… but it’s not.

I didn’t have any almond butter (and I knew this) so it was really just an excuse to try making almond butter in the vita…  and it was not only easy, but DELICIOUS! Seriously, I don’t think I’ll ever need to buy almond butter again! The hardest part of making almond butter? Getting it out of the blender!

Thankfully, I had a solution for using the rest of it… ;)

Ice Cream!!! I threw half a banana, 6 frozen soy milk cubes, a splash of soymilk, and some truvia. Blended it up and had magically delicious ice cream in a few minutes.

Stay tuned… tonight, I’ll be attempting chocolate almond butter! (Ok, I’m getting a liiiiittle obsessive with the nut butter making… so I promise, this is the last recipe for awhile!)

Is anyone else feeling baking obsessed these days??

Have a great weekend, bloggies!
