Ok so we use almond butter in our house instead of peanut butter, cause you can find it at trader joes for the same price, and it has more nutrients (like more iron).  Plus it’s much tastier.

I decided to try my hand at some cookies, since my husband LOVES peanut butter cookies.  I found lots of flourless pb recipes online, but when i mixed up the dough, it was too runny, so I created my own concoction:

Note – they are a little delicate at first, so let them sit for a minute or two before moving them to a cooling rack.  Also parchment paper is a definite plus here, or at least grease the cookie sheet VERY well with butter.

The result: 26 beautiful cookies full of yumminess!!

Edit: I just realized I have some almond meal on hand, I bet that would’ve tasted better than GF flour…..and for people who don’t have gluten issues, I’m sure any regular flour would work fine too :)
