Not Just For Passover Recipes - Almond Butter Cookies


  • Author: Vicky & Ruth
  • Yield: 15 cookies 1x

Description

Chewy and delicious gluten-free almond butter cookies sweetened with dates and with only 5 ingredients!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 8 large Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/3 cup almond butter
  • 3-4 tbsp almond flour
  • 2 tbsp potato starch
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips, melted (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. Soak the dates in hot water for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Squeeze the water out and place them in the food processor. Add the almond butter, 3 tablespoons of almond flour, potato starch and vanilla and process until all the ingredients come together to form a dough ( it should be soft and smooth and slightly sticky, but workable. If it's not, add the additional tablespoon of almond flour and and mix again)
  4. Working with 2 teaspoons a time (we like using a small ice cream scoop), form 15 balls with the dough. Arrange them on the lined baking sheet and flatten them slight with the palm of your hand. Using a fork, do a crisscross pattern on each cookie (this step is optional)
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes and let them cool completely. Drizzle with melted chocolate (optional)
