5-Ingredient Almond Butter Cookies

Warm, soft and chewy. Oh, and only five-ingredients.

"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. 

 

Ingredients (makes 20-22 cookies)

3/4 cup almond butter

1/2 cup maple syrup

2 cups almond flour (ground almonds)

1/2 tsp salt

Dark chocolate and/or flaked almonds to top (optional)


Method:

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.
