Almond Maple Cookies
I LOVE these cookies - they are full of healthy fat, protein and fiber, simple to make, fast to cook up, and the kids love them which is a huge bonus.
1/2 cup of almond butter (or other nut butter)
1/2 cup maple syrup
3 tbsp melted coconut oil
1tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup Bob's Red Mill All Purpose Flour
3 tbsp of ground flaxseed or chia seed
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup of chopped almonds (or other nuts)
Preheat oven to 350F
In large bowl mix together the almond butter, maple syrup, coconut oils and vanilla
In a separate bowl mix together the dry ingredients.
Roll into balls and place on cookie sheet and flatten with a fork (they do not spread too much).
Makes about 12-16 cookies.
They freeze well.
