cookieAre you missing peanut butter cookies?  Well, no more of that!  These almond butter cookies taste scrumptious…and they’re good for your bones.

To make about 3 dozen cookies, you will need:

1 large mixing bowl
1 spoon for stirring
1 9″ x 13″ glass pan
fork and spoon
aluminum foil
1 cup of Earth Balance buttery spread
3/4 cup of Xylosweet (available at local health food stores)
1 tsp of almond extract (or vanilla extract)
2 cups of Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Baking Mix
1/2 cup smooth almond butter
1 egg
2 tbsp almond milk  (I use Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze, available at Publix and health food stores.)
2 3-oz bars of dark chocolate from the health food store

Preheat oven to 400°.  Line a 9″ x 13″ glass pan with aluminum foil.  In large mixing bowl, combine the first seven ingredients, mixing well until dough is smooth and uniform in consistency.   Scoop out dough with a teaspoon, and shape into 1-inch balls.  Place 1 inch apart on glass pan.  Flatten with a fork in criss-cross pattern.  Top each cookie with a chunk of dark chocolate.  Bake 10-11 minutes, or until lightly browned.  (Do not overbake.)  Cool.   Enjoy!

    Kathy – I thought oats were acid

    • Kathy says:

      Yes, oats are acidifying, but that doesn’t mean we should never eat them. Oats are nutritious, even if they do add some acid to the blood. Remember that the guideline is 80% alkaline / 20% acid. We can include some acidifying foods in our diet, as long as we keep them in the correct balance with alkalizing foods. How do I know when I’m eating the correct balance? I do pH testing with the pH testing tape. You can find information about pH testing tape on this website.

    Hi Kathleen,

    How much time (in total) will this recipe take?

    Btw, I have a similar recipe on my website, but it’s with Jam (no chocolate): Almond Butter Cookies with Jam.
