Vegan Almond Butter Crunch Cookies
When looking for recipes to share I came across one that I thought would be excellent to pass on. Though it is not the healthiest of cookies, it will help flourish a vegan’s diet as a delightful treat. This one is a delicious recipe without all the sweetness. I felt it was a must share!
½ cup of nonhydogenated, nondairy butter
¾ Cup of light brown sugar, packed
½ cup of peanut butter or almond butter, your preference
2 TBSP of non-dairy milk
1 TSP of vanilla extract
1 ½ cups of either all-purpose or whole wheat flour
¾ TSP baking aluminum free baking powder
Preheat the oven at 375 degrees. Mix in a large bowl the butter, sugar, almond butter OR peanut butter, vanilla extract and milk. Next add in the dry ingredients and be sure to mix well. If the mixture becomes too thick or stiff add in a slight amount more milk. The batter should be stiff enough to form into 1 inch balls. Place these balls evenly on a non-stick cookie sheet and press down with a fork twice, once vertically and once horizontally. Bake for approximately 10 to 12 minutes and let stand to cool.
