Almond Butter Cookies Adapted from thechalkboardmag.com
1 1/2 cups almond flour
4 TBS ground flax seeds
4 TBS hemp seeds
1/4 tsp pink salt
1/2 cup almond butter
2/3 cup coconut milk
6 TBS melted coconut oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 TBS maple syrup (optional)
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate (75% or higher)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix together the dry ingredients, except the chocolate, then add the wet. Once combined add the chocolate.
Optional: Place the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour. This will harden the dough making it easier to roll into balls. (You can also stop here and enjoy no bake cookie dough balls.)
Shape the dough into balls and place them on the cookie sheet. Press down gently to make uniform cookies.
Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let them cool on a cooling rack for 5 minutes and then enjoy!
Store in the fridge for up to three days.
