Almond Butter Bites

If you need a little indulgence, these little bites are perfect. They are packed with protein and a little sweetness that makes for a perfect treat.

You can definitely substitute any nut or seed butter you have on hand. Try making your own by blending your nut or seed of choice in a food processor until it becomes creamy. Be patient, it takes a few minutes of blending.

The flour is flexible, so if you don’t have oat, you can use rice, sorghum or buckwheat.

Give these a try and let me know how much you love them.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup almond butter or other nut/seed butter
  • 3 Tbsp gluten free flour (oat, rice, sorghum, buckwheat)
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 banana, mashed
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 3 Tbsp dairy free chocolate chips optional

Instructions

  • Combine flour, sugar and baking soda in a medium mixing bowl and whisk.
  • Add wet ingredients to the bowl, mixing thoroughly to form a dough.
  • Roll into small balls of equal size, about 1 tablespoon.
  • For chewy cookies, refrigerate for 30 minutes. You can freeze the dough at this point and save for future cookie baking.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. The cookies will look under done but will firm up while cooling. Let cool for 10 minutes.
  • Melt chocolate chips and use a fork to splatter chocolate over cookies.
