Paleo Cookies with Almond Butter
Milk and cookies anyone? I felt like some dessert tonight and so made a variation of the cinnamon cookies that I used to make – they are quite delicious and addictive! The basis of the cookies is almond butter and chia bran.
What is chia flour? It’s a flour made from chia seeds that works well as a replacement to flax meal, almond flour, or coconut flour. It doesn’t taste strongly of anything but sticks ingredients together well. It’s great to bake with!
Other ingredients include eggs, cinnamon, baking powder, honey, and some pure vanilla extract (of course, I use my own homemade one).
I made 9 small 1-inch diameter balls with the dough and then pressed them down to make a cookie on the baking tray. It looks a bit oily because of the almond butter but that cooks away. Just 8 minutes in the oven (preheat at 375F) and deliciousness follows. I enjoyed some cookies with a glass of coconut milk.
