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.
