I for one am a HUGE fan of Peanut Butter. Seriously, how many people can actually resist it? Changing to paleo ways meant getting rid of peanuts and peanut butter... SO... here are some cookies that will completely hit the spot if you want something sweet and get rid of those peanut butter cravings.
Here is what you need:
1/3 cup of ghee
1 cup of coconut sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup of almond butter
1 1/2 cup almond flour
2 Tbs coconut flour
1 cup Cacao Chips- at least 60% cacao
2 Tsp Coconut Oil
¼ cup Chopped Almonds
Corse Kosher Salt (optional)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F
Mix in your ghee (do not melt), coconut sugar, and almond butter. Let these ingredients fully mix. Add in baking soda, vanilla, and eggs. Mix on a slow speed for a good 3 minutes. Add in the almond flour and coconut flour and let mix on slow for a good 5 minutes. The almond butter is quite oily so you want to make sure it is nicely mixed.
Make sure you use parchment paper on your cookie sheet. So important because it will end up sticking to the cookie sheet if you do not use it. The Almond butter cookies will roll up really nicely but will leave a lot of oil on your hands. Don't worry... totally worth it! Put them in the oven for 10 minutes.
Take your cookies out and allow to cool on separate plate. Meanwhile, on a non-stick pan, mix and melt cacao and coconut oil fully on medium heat. Add this topping to your cookies and sprinkle with chopped almonds. I can't help but add a little sprinkle of corse salt on top.
Take a bite... Nice a soft.... oh so yum!
