Baking cookies is always a special occasion. So today I’m sharing almond butter cookies that are baked to perfection, super soft & chewy, and so addicting! It’s a healthier take on regular chocolate chip cookies with a little protein from the almond butter and sweetened naturally with coconut sugar. I shared these cookies with my family and they disappeared within a day! Every bite is chocolate-y, chewy, and DELISH. 

A perfect recipe to satisfy your sweet tooth but made with all wholesome ingredients. Yum!

How to Make Almond Butter Cookies – step by step

  1. First, mix eggs, coconut sugar, vanilla, melted butter, almond butter, and cinnamon in a bowl. 
  2. Then stir in almond flour and baking soda in until wet ingredients are incorporated into dry ingredients. 
  3. Last, stir in chocolate chips. Use a mini 1 1/2-inch cookie scoop to measure dough – roll into dough balls and place 3 inches apart from each other on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Bake at 350F for 8-10 minutes then cool for 5 minutes.

Can I substitute almond butter for peanut butter in cookies?

The cookies can be baked with whichever nut butter you prefer.  You can use almond butter, peanut butter, or cashew butter. The taste will slightly differ depending on the type of nut butter you use – but results will be the same when baking the cookies. 

 

Tips for Making Almond Butter Cookies

  • For chocolate chips you can use regular or mini semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips. I recommend using Enjoy Life chocolate chips – this company makes chocolate with no preservatives or unnecessary ingredients and they taste SO good. 
  • This recipe includes almond butter, but you can also use peanut butter or cashew butter. 
  • To keep cookies fresh and chewy, store in a sealed container or ziplock bag at room temperature or in the refrigerator.
