When we’re in the mood for something sweet, we love to whip up these super easy Almond Butter Cookies made with Ezra Cohen Montreal Natural Almond Butter! And because they’re so simple, they’re a perfect recipe for baking with kids—and a guaranteed yummy treat.
With the whole family home, it can be tough to find activities that keep everyone occupied and active instead of stuck in front of the screen. Baking is a fun task that kids of all ages can participate in though, and it’s easy to get everyone to clean up when there are cookies to be enjoyed when it’s all done.
Below, we’re sharing our recipe for the world’s easiest Almond Butter Cookies. They’re made with just a handful of pantry staples and are endlessly adaptable so that your kids can let their creativity shine through. (Though we’ve shared some of our favorite ways to mix it up in case anyone needs some ideas to get them started.)
Does everyone have their apron tied? Let’s get baking!
1 cup Ezra Cohen Montreal Natural Almond Butter
¼ cup of coconut sugar
¼ cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
Optional extras: Chocolate chips (regular or mini), crushed up pretzels, crushed up graham crackers, shredded coconut, mini marshmallows, sprinkles, chopped almonds, dash of cinnamon, butterscotch chips, teaspoon of honey.
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Combine all ingredients in a stand mixer with a paddle attachment or in a large bowl with a wooden spoon, and mix until you have a well-formed dough. [If you’re adding any extras, gently stir to add in after mixing.]
2. Roll cookie dough into balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You should have about 16 cookies total and may need to do two batches. Bake for 9 minutes, then remove your cookies from the oven and cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack.
Store leftover cookies in an airtight container for up to one week. For a special breakfast, we like to crumble our cookies up and use them as a sweet layer in our Almond Butter Parfait. You can also make movie night ice cream sandwiches by taking two cookies and spreading a scoop of your favorite ice cream between them.
