Homemade Almond Butter

Almond Butter and Almond Flour Cookies

Almonds are naturally sweet. Taste test yourself and try several nuts and you will see just how sweet almonds are.

Since cookie recipes usually rely on some type of fat, usually butter, these almond cookies use only almond butter.

If you’ve made my Homemade Almond Butter you will know that almond butter is simply almonds that have been softened in water, removed and pureed into a smooth buttery paste. Healthy!

Making Almond Cookies

Like most cookies, the dry ingredients in this recipe is mixed with and held together by the almond butter. The dough can be rolled into balls and flattened on the cookie sheet, or press the balls of dough inside a biscuit round to shape the cookie. Then bake!

Cookies and Milk? Dairy Free Milk?

Why yes! We couldn’t possibly enjoy these almond cookies without a glass of Homemade Almond Milk! Store bought, if you must, but almond milk is too easy to make.

Homemade Almond Milk simply needs one cup of almonds and three cups of water. That’s it. No preservatives or additives.
