Recipe Notes

  • The cookies freeze well for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator.
  • For the almond butter, homemade, natural, or commercial almond butter can be used, however, the type will alter the texture slightly. Be sure to stir in any excess oil on top of the natural brands, and get it completely mixed in. An equal amount of peanut butter may be used instead of almond butter.
  • Coconut sugar such as Trader Joe’s brand organic coconut sugar can be substituted in place of brown sugar.
