5-Ingredient Almond Butter Cookies
"How good can a five-ingredient cookie really be?" is what you're probably wondering. We know. Soft and chewy cookies usually rely on several types of sugars for depth of flavour, an oil-based source of fat as well as flour for texture and some sort of rising agent for lightness. This recipe breaks most cookie-gravity-laws and achieves all of its chewiness and softness from almond flour, almond butter and maple syrup. Don't ask how just trust us.
¾ cup almond butter
½ cup maple syrup
2 cups almond flour (ground almonds)
½ tsp salt
5Dark chocolate and/or flaked almonds to top (optional)
Mix your almond butter and maple syrup until fully combined. Add in your almond flour and salt and stir.
Roll into 1 tbsp balls and transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Top with dark chocolate and/or flaked almonds and press down slightly.
Bake in a 180˚C for 10-11 mins, until golden.
Enjoy warm out of the oven.
