Is there someone out there that is a cookie monster? My hand is raised proudly. When I was younger, cookies were still a treat, and they had to be washed down with a bottle of cold milk. Mille’s Cookies were a favourite of mine during my undergraduate years, so you might tell I’m a cookie monster.
I’m trying to make nutritious versions of my favourite snacks these days. I already have a delicious gluten-free Peanut Butter Cup Cookie recipe on the internet, which I hope to make again soon, but I wanted to see if I could make an easy cookie recipe with almond butter. What’s more, guess what? I’ve figured it out! These grain-free cookies only have four ingredients and are incredibly tasty.
These cookies are naturally grain-free and packed with good fats from the almond butter, making them a perfect healthier option. The amount of ground ginger in the cookie batter is optional, but I decided that I needed to incorporate a little more to round out the almond butter flavour. Since the ground ginger acts as a stabiliser for the cookie batter, no flour is needed.
“I’d like a cookie!”
You must have seen the Cookie Monster analogy if you had grown up watching Sesame Street. I kept my batch of soft chewy cookies in an airtight jar in the fridge and they’re still going strong; they’d even last well in the freezer. I’m thinking about adding some chocolate chips and sea salt the next time I make these. Good luck with your cookies!
