almond butter cookies

I decided last week that I have been eating too much ice cream. I wasn’t really sad about it, but it still is kinda bathing suit season around here, so I can’t quite let myself go just yet.

I decided to experiment with some gluten free treats. I think they are pretty paleo too, for you cavemen. These are almond butter coconut cookies. They just came out of the oven, and 4 of them are already gone. I think its safe to say they make a more than adequate dessert. I wrote out the recipe below!Almond butter coconut cookies

Almond Butter Coconut Cookies

  • 1 cup almond butter
  • 3/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tbsp honey (could probably add a little more if you want them sweeter)

Preheat to 350. Mix almond butter and coconut. Add egg, vanilla, soda, and honey. Scoop to make cookies and place on baking sheet lined with parchment. Don’t forget to flatten a little with the fork! Just like peanut butter cookies. Mine went in the oven for 10 minutes and came out very tender. You could probably bake a minute or two longer for a crunchier cookie. Eat 2 as soon as they are cool, and don’t feel at all guilty about it.
