Ready In:
24 cookies




  • Preheat oven to 350* and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • Beat together almond butter and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer until smooth.
  • Add beaten egg and baking soda to almond butter mixture and beat until well combined.
  • Roll 1 teaspoon of dough into a ball and roll in sugar then place on cookie sheet.
  • Place dough balls one inch apart on cookie sheet and either leave as little balls (which is how we like them) or flatten with tines of fork making a cross pattern.

  • Cool cookies on parchment paper about 2 minutes and then transfer with spatula to rack to cool at least 10 more minutes.

    I found they start to burn at about 25 minutes at 350, so the second batch I reduced to 20 minutes. The texture and quality was much better when not overcooked. the ratio of 1 egg one cup allman butter and one cup Splenda leaves them a little greasy. I will experiment and add almond flour next time.

    These are excellent! Love that I didn't need flour...they seem somewhat healthy. Thank you!
    Perfect for low-carb dieters! These were good but very sweet. I think next time I would use 3/4 cup of sugar blend. I did use the Splenda brown sugar blend like some other reviewers. I also got 15 good size cookies out of the batch. Mine must have been bigger because they took a few minutes longer to cook. Made for Everyday is a Holiday Tag

    These cookies were really nice on the inside with a great crunch to them and such a yummy nutty flavour! Mmm, the almond butter really gave them a wonderful taste! I made my own nut butter using almonds, pecans, cashew nuts and walnuts. YUM!<br/>I think this concept is brilliant for sugar conscious people, however the German sugar sub I used didnt work out that well. It kinda left a funny cold feeling on my tongue. I think using this particular sub rolling the cookies in sugar isnt the best idea. The inside was great, so next time Ill just skip the rolling step.<br/>THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this lovely idea here with us, Debbie!<br/>Made and reviewed for PRMR Tag Game January 2011.
