I had some almond butter that had been around for a while and wanted to use it. So, I made these. It could be done with any nut butter you happen to have on hand. Can be nuggets or flat cookies.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Beat sugars and butter in a bowl until fluffy, about 3 minutes with a mixer.
  3. Add your nut butter and vanilla. Beat in well.
  4. Beat in the egg.
  5. Add dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
  6. Add oats and mix well. As this is a very moist dough, you could easily double the oats, if you want to do so.
  7. Scoop 1 tsp rounded balls for small cookies or 2 tsp rounded balls for larger cookies onto silpat lined baking sheets.
  8. If you want, place a nut, matching the butter, on top of each cookie. This is totally optional. This will make little nuggets.
  9. If you want flat cookies, just dip a glass in sugar and flatten the dough with a twisting motion.
  10. Bake 10-12 minutes.
  11. Enjoy.
  12. I like to just bake 1 small sheet at a time and refrigerate the rest of the dough. That way, when I do have cookies, they are always fresh. It is also nice to pop some in the oven when unexpected company stops by to visit.
