It’s Treat Time! GFCF Almond Butter Cookies

by Misty

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 for the side-of-the-box recipe!


1 cup almond butter

3/4 cup natural sweetener

1 large egg

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 oz chocolate chips (we skip these, but I’m sure they’re delicious. If you use Enjoy Life Mini-Chocolate Chips, they will be gluten/dairy/soy free).


-Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

-Combine the first 5 ingredients and stir.

-Add chocolate chips, if using.

-Drop rounded tablespoons onto parchment-lined baking sheet.

-Bake 10-12 minutes.


Yields about 18 cookies.

  1. I love these cookies! They are a huge hit anywhere I bring them. Do you know if I can make and freeze the dough if it’ll be as good? Or if I make the dough and keep it in the fridge for a couple days? Thanks!

  2. Gosh, good question. I haven’t tried that. My kiddos were sick for two weeks recently and these cookies were one of the only things I could get them to eat. Thanks goodness for the good fats, calories and protein!
