Almond Butter Maple Cookies





I don't make too many cookies myself. Just not a huge fan of them...even though I have a few favorites, pumpkin ones being THE COOKIE for sure! Why I liked these is because they were different, though, next time I would probably try getting some really good quality maple syrup, I felt like I just didn't get enough of that flavor in the cookie and I hoped for it rather than jut to use it as a sweetener.






Almond Butter Maple Cookies
adapted from Sweet And Natural

1/2 cup natural almond butter
1/2 cup maple syrup
3 tablespoons canola oil
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped almonds






Preheat the oven to 350*F. In a large bowl, combine natural almond butter, maple syrup, canola oil and almond extract until well blended. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, along with chopped almonds, and stir until just combined. Let sit for five minutes. Roll heaping tablespoons of dough into balls, flatten to about 1/3 of an inch, score with a fork and place onto cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Makes 18 cookies.







I still have half a big jar of almond butter and I need a good recipe to use it in. Suggestions are welcome!

  1. ja više volim raditi keksiće, nego ih jesti... no dobro, naravno da ih i volim jesti :) p.s. hoće li kod tebe biti postovas tematikom halloweena? ja ga obožavam, a bilo bi zanimljivo vidjeti kako ga doživljava netko iz hrvatske tko živi u sad-u? :)
