Homemade baked goods are best…always and forever.
Have you ever noticed that any time you want to purchase specialty made cookies from the bakery they come with a high price-tag? You’re not alone and in that moment of lazy baking walk away and vow to make them at home yourself. It’s easy to get caught up in buying pre-made foods including baked goods but you don’t need to. I no longer buy cookies for my family, I bake them myself.
These days however my kids love to be in the kitchen with me so simple cookie recipes such as these almond peanut butter cookies are perfect for them to participate with me. Our son Wilson made the last batch of Almond Peanut Butter cookies all by himself and he was so proud! Oh, the joys of parenting are delightful.
As a frugal living family my goal is to stretch our grocery budget so we can include the ingredients needed to prepare homemade baked goods and meals. I’m one of those moms who struggles with buying foods where I can’t understand the ingredient list.
These Almond Peanut Butter Cookies are what I make when I have unexpected visitors or when I’m in need of that quick sugar-high with my cuppa tea. What I love about these almond peanut butter cookies is that they take no time at all to make, they are flour-less and they have that bit of crunch from the almonds.
There are plenty of health benefits with nuts especially almonds however you’ll be fascinated to find out that almonds really are not in fact a true nut.
Almonds are packed with vitamins, minerals, protein, and fiber, and are associated with a number of health benefits. Just a handful of almonds — approximately 1 ounce — contain one-eighth of our daily protein needs.
How to make Almond Peanut Butter Cookies
The recipe for these Almond Peanut Butter cookies has four ingredients and no flour which is great if you are looking for a tasty gluten-free cookie recipe. You’ll find this cookie to be satiny in the mouth, crumbly in texture and addictive. You will definitely have to make a double or even treble batch of these delicious cookies.
You can use either toasted almond slices or raw almond slices in this recipe. You can also jazz them up further by adding chocolate chips if you want that cocoa boost! If you’re looking to cut the sugar from your diet then simply modify the recipe to accommodate the sugar substitute you use. This could easily become a low-carb, sugar-free cookie.
Personally, I like them the way they are.
- 2 cups peanut butter
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup sliced almonds
- Heat oven to 350oF
- In a large bowl or stand mixer place all the ingredients together and mix until well combined, almost to a dough consistency.
- Roll into small balls spacing about an inch apart, and then press lightly down with a fork (these will not spread out too much)
- Cook for 15 mins or until slightly brown. Let cool and transfer to rack to cool completely.
Remember you will only need just 4 ingredients to make these simple yet elegant Almond Peanut Butter Cookies which I hope will spark an interest for you to get into the kitchen. Baking doesn’t have to be difficult nor should you have to spend money buying foods where you don’t understand the ingredient list.
If you start small in the kitchen you’ll soon see just how easy it is to add recipes that take a bit more time and more ingredients to experiment. Baking homemade is always the way to go.
Store in a container for a week or in the freezer up to 6 months (they won’t last that long in our house)
