Healthy & Yummy Almond Butter Cookies!

Hi Friends! How is your Ideal Day going? Make sure to keep everyone updated in the comments about your adventures on our 7 Week Bliss-In! Calm. Connected. Capable. Exciting way to wind the year back to you, where all the good stuff is.

So my day started out like any other morning in NYC. Woke up, had some tea, led STRONG at Strala. STRONG if you don’t know is quite the yoga party. We’re brining Strala to you if you’re not around NYC area or a trained Strala guide you can now practice with us daily on-line! Woo hoo. More to come there. I digress. I get excited about yoga. Anyway, I came home and got to work on the short film we’re shooting in a couple weeks. Any guesses on the title? Hint, it’s a comedy about yoga. That’s a pretty big hint! I got hungry.

I made some awesome green juice. Kale, cucumber, apple, lemon, celery. YUM! I went back to work. I got hungry again and since in holiday mode decided to bake something. I tried to bake granola but we’re out of oats, so looking at what I had around that looked good it was almond butter, nuts, honey, coco powder…I got thinking I could bake cookies! Why not!

I made up this recipe as I went along and it turned out pretty darn good! Now the whole house smells like cookies and I’m fueled up to finish the edits on “name my short film”

Try out these cookies and let me know what you think and share your recipes too! Would love to see what you bake!

    Yummy I’m going to try those tonight!

    They look incredible!

  • They’re in the oven right now! I don’t have almond flour so I googled what to sub and ended up using tapioca flour. Hope it’s just as good, but I’m buying almond flour tonight, because I’ve read such rad things about it. Thanks for the recipe!

  • P.S. I am gluten-free so extra thanks for this gf recipe :) I’m still looking for good gf cookies I can make myself…

  • Update: do NOT try tapioca flour. Gotta try with almond!

    Thanks for recipe! I will have to tweak a little. Mine burnt within the 20 minutes, are crumbly, and just not enough sweetness. I may squeeze a little agave nectar on top. Hmmm…

    just made a batch of these and they smelt soooo good…until i burnt them :( so devastated!

    These seemed to be missing a little something to make them more moist, perhaps a teaspoon or more of coconut milk? Mine only came out okay, dry, but they have potential. I also baked mine for only 12 minutes and they were completely dine. Took the 2nd batch out at 10 minutes and the bottoms were still on the dark side.

    I tried white rice flour, don’t try that either. and 20 min was too long for mine too. 10 min seemed better. I too thought they needed a bit more sweetness. I was thinking of added diced pineapple or pear sauce instead of the oil… or with it. not sure but will give it another shot.

    I wish I had read the comments before baking.. 20 mins is definitely too long, they were not the good kind of crumbly, and they weren’t sweet enough.. honestly they were very bland and I would not make again without majorly tweaking it.. but a good base recipe.. or it might be a good crust since it flattens fairly well.

    These were way too crumbly, might be able to use the cookies I made as a base for a cheesecake or pie or something… this recipe could use an egg!

    Thanks to everyone’s comments my cookies turned out ok!1) I did add a bit more coconut oil to keep them moist 2) I baked the cookies for 10 mins only and let them cool for another 10 mins. Et voila!
    Hope this helps!
