NothingChocolate’s Almond Butter Cookies

Baked these a few times after this post and the result was a “cakier” bake than I experienced my first time out.  Re-worked the recipe and figured out these need no white flour at all to be deliciously crunchy.

Here’s the improved recipe.

Yield = 24 cookies

Ingredients

Creaming…

Wet
1 egg
1 t vanilla
¼ C maple syrup
¼ C almond milk

Process: cream sugar with almond butter and molasses (if using) until smooth; mix the wet ingredients together; process the rolled oats and add to a large bowl; combine all the dry ingredients together and set aside; add the wet mixture to the creamed mixture and mix well; add the dry ingredients and mix to combine; the resulting mixture is wetter and spreads easily making a crispier cookie; drop onto a prepared cookie sheet by tablespoon about 2 inches apart; bake for 12-15 minutes at 350 F.

Options

Raisins, chocolate chips or nuts can be added to the batter. I also decorated some with sliced almonds.  My next batch will include a sea-salt version; a sprinkle of sea salt onto each cookie before baking.  And dipping the finished cookie into melted chocolate is yet another alternative for this versatile recipe!
