Tips for great almond butter cookies

  • Make sure you use a smooth kind of almond butter. This will ensure that your cookies are the best they can be.
  • Make sure you chill the cookies before baking. Just pop the cookies in a fridge for at least 15 minutes prior to baking. If you bake them at room temperature, they may spread out too much. Chilling before baking will help the cookies keep their original shape. 
  • The cookies will be soft after baking, which may worry you, but once they cool down you will have that perfect crunchy-on-the outside and chewy in the inside texture.
  • If you want to improve this cookie recipe even more, you can add in some low carb chocolate chips or some chopped almonds for the crunchier texture, similar to our yummy peanut butter cookies or our amazing keto magic cookies
