Ingredients to make these low calorie flourless almond butter cookies
I’ve always loved recipes with only a few ingredients so this 3-ingredient almond cookies falls right up my alley. Here are the ingredients you’re
- Almond butter- You can use any natural almond butter you have. We are going for healthy cookies so that’s why I am saying use natural almond butter. I used the Fokken nut almond butter with dark chocolate and sea salt, so the cookies I got were slightly darker than if let’s say you use regular almond butter!
- Raw honey– Honey is a way healthier sweetener alternative. Make that honey raw and you will reap many extra health benefits!
- Egg– You will need one egg at room temperature to make everything hold together.
How does almond butter taste like?
Almond butter is like peanut butter but on steroid! It’s nuttier, richer and is an awesome alternative for those with peanut-only allergies!
Another thing to keep in mind since we are making healthy cookies is that almond butter is a tad bit healthier than peanut butter. It is slightly higher in vitamins (vitamin E), minerals (magnesium, iron), and fiber.
Best of all, almond butter often times has a little less calories than peanut butter so it’s a win win for us all!
