This year I have grown to love Almond Butter. It’s not as addicting as peanut butter and it’s extremely healthy. Iced Media took a notice to my new love and sent me some MaraNatha almond butter for me to try out! They also sent me some other baking goodies.

After opening up the box, I immediately had the urge to bake. And the urge to listen to Christmas music…but that’s beyond the point. I decided on almond butter oat cookies.

I love keeping them in the fridge for snacks, pre workout fuel, and yogurt toppings.

Cut in half for smaller batch.

-Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

-In a large mixing bowl, combine the egg, vanilla, syrup, baking soda and oats together.

-Mix in the Almond Butter.

-I was afraid that the cookies would be too crumbly, so I mixed in some flour to hold them together better.

If you like eating “no bake” cookie dough, omit the egg and baking soda! It’s delicious.

I didn’t have chocolate chips in the house (that’s a first) but if I did, I would have added them in! I recommend it!

Add tbsp sized cookies onto a baking sheet.

It was hard not to scoop out the almond butter and eat it out of the jar. The maple flavor is a nice touch!

image

Bake 6-8 minutes.

image

Let the cookies cool a couple minutes before removing them from the sheet.

Bake the second batch! Unless you cut the recipe in half.
