Paleo Almond Butter Cookies

These Paleo Almond Butter Cookies are flourless and gluten-free! They are easy to make and instead of chocolate chips I used raisins and coconut flakes for a fun twist but you can use anything you want. The cookies can easily be made keto-friendly by using your preferred sweetener.

How to Make Almond Butter Cookies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine almond butter, sugar, salt, baking soda, egg and vanilla extract. Mix well. Add raisins and shredded coconut.

Form balls out of the cookie mixture about the size of a quarter. Arrange on a baking sheet with at least 3 inches between each cookie ball.

Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.

Notes

Tracey's Notes ~ I did test a batch with 1/2 cup of organic brown sugar and the cookies turned out to be a bit thicker and chewy, while the whole cane sugar makes a larger, crisper cookie.

Egg-Free option ~ I've also tested it with Ener-G egg replacer (my husband is allergic to eggs) and they're great too.

With the raisin and coconut, it was almost like a breakfast cookie. Not too sweet and filling.
