Ever baked with almond butter? If not, now is the time to start. I made almond butter cookies with chocolate chips and shredded coconut and they were divine. These chewy, yet smooth cookies have bites of surprising flavors that pair perfectly with almond butter.
Almond butter is an excellent stand in for peanut butter. It has a milder taste, while not sacrificing any nutty flavor, and has a slightly rougher texture, which in my opinion is more satisfying to eat. So I asked myself, how would almond butter perform in cookies?
Almond butter did not let me down. These chewy cookies have a subtle flavor that for those who are not familiar with almond butter would have trouble putting their finger on. But that sneaky flavor keeps you coming back for more. It’s not overwhelming like peanut butter typically is, but instead it’s a sophisticated nutty flavor that settles well in cookies.
