Vegan Gluten-Free Cookies - Green to Glass

Sweet and Salty Almond Butter Cookies

Makes 2 dozen


For this flavorful gluten-free, vegan, and protein-packed almond butter cookie recipe you will need:

1½ cups gluten-free flour (if the flour doesn’t include xanthan gum, add ¾ teaspoon)

½ teaspoon fine sea salt

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 cup natural almond butter

1 cup (or less, to taste) good-quality maple syrup

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

½ teaspoon coarse Himalayan salt or fleur de sel

Optional: ½ cup chopped almonds for extra crunch


1- Preheat the oven to 350oF and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

2- Whisk together the flour, fine sea salt, and baking powder.

3- In a separate bowl, mix together the almond butter, maple syrup, and vanilla. Then combine the wet and dry ingredients thoroughly.

4- Form small balls with two spoons and space them 2 inches apart on the pans.

5- Press down on the cookies to form little disks and sprinkle each cookie with a small amount of coarse salt.

6- Bake until the air is fragrant and the cookies are just firm, 10 to 12 minutes. Let them cool on a rack before serving.
