These gluten-free Chocolate Almond Butter Cookies are made with few simple ingredients and it’s ready in 15 minutes.
After two long weeks we (Thomas and me) are finally feeling much better. We had a strong cold. Actually I’m still not 100% good, but Thomas is better and it makes me feel very happy! I love seeing him full of energy playing around again 😉
So, today I’m sharing with you the easiest cookie recipe in the world. Yes, it sounds like I am exaggerating, right? But it’s true! I’m not kidding. It only took me 15 minutes from prep to bake these goodies. If you have all the ingredients in your kitchen, you just need to measure the ingredients, and throw everything in the bowl, mix to combine and bake them. Simple as pie!
Before you jump to the recipe I just would like to give you some tips:
First, you have to use a very creamy almond butter to prevent the cookies to be crumbly. Otherwise, they may fall apart easily. Second, if you don’t have chocolate chips on hand, you can still make these cookies just by crushing up a dark chocolate bar. Last, you can use any other type of oil here. I used coconut oil because it was what I had in my pantry. However, you can use canola oil, avocado oil, grape seed oil and so on. But, I don’t recommend you use olive oil because the flavor can be a little bit too strong with this recipe.
