Almond Butter Cookies

These cookies are so yummy & you can customize them in many ways. Don't limit yourself to just almond butter... you can also use an equal amount of either cashew butter, peanut butter (either smooth or crunchy) or any type of nut/seed butter you like. Make a double or triple batch & freeze them, so you'll always have some on hand for a cookie craving!

Yield: 2 dozen cookies


1/2 cup butter (1 stick), sliced & softened (see Tip#1)

1/2 cup almond butter

1/2 cup light brown sugar, loosely packed

1/2 cup organic cane sugar

1 large organic egg

1/2 tsp real vanilla extract

1 cup organic all purpose flour

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp baking soda


1 Ingredients.

2 Preheat oven to 350°.

3 Add butter & almond butter to a 4 quart bowl. Beat with an electric hand mixer till creamy. Gradually beat in both sugars, then egg & vanilla till smooth.

4 In a separate 1 quart bowl; mix flour, salt & baking soda.

5 Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients & stir till well combined.

6 Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (see Tip# 1). Drop batter by rounded cookie scoops (or use a Tblsp) onto baking sheet 2" apart.

7 Bake on lower middle oven rack 10 to 13 minutes. They're done when barely browning on edges.

8 Cool 5 minutes & transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container in the frig or freeze for longer storage.

    1. Hi Gursimrat, I’ve always been told when it comes to bakery goods, you really need to follow the ingredients as is. However… these days there are a lot of “substitute” products on the market, there may even be an egg substitute. Ask at your local grocery store… and there’s always Google!

      You may be able to find an answer or help at the King Arthur Flour website. Here’s 2 links, one is for their blog and another for help/learning. Let me know if you find out anything!
