Almond Butter Cookies

Almond Butter Cookies

I've been trying to perfect this cookie for months, and I think I finally got it! These cookies came out epic. Soft on the inside, crunchy on the outside. A few things before you guys make these though. First, I recommend using the Maranatha Almond butter brand- the texture and taste of the cookie will definitely come out better than using other brands. Second, all this time Ive been testing out this recipe I've been using jarred apple sauce. When I ran out, I decided to prepare my own apple sauce. I must say, it was a game changer!


(Feel free to omit and use regular apple sauce.)

Simply peel, dice and sauté 2 apples with 6 tablespoons of water, 2 table spoons of monk fruit sweetener, and a dash of cinnamon. Sauté on medium heat covered for about 15 minutes and mash once its done.
