Sometimes inspiration can come from the strangest places, like the side of a box. At least that was the case with these simple and delicious almond butter cookies. We received a shipment of supplements from an online vitamin company and voila – on the side of the box was this recipe. I made these nutrient-dense little gems the same day we got the shipment and the kids loved them. We used a combination of raw honey and coconut sugar for the sweetener, which makes these a no-guilt lunchbox treat, after school snack, or protein-rich addition to breakfast.
Enjoy – we hope you like them as much as we do! And thanks to Vitacost.com for the side-of-the-box recipe!
