Organic Almond ButterJust because you want to eat healthy doesn’t mean you can’t have any fun. There is no need to forgo snacking and dessert when you have organic almond butter in the pantry!

We regularly hear from customers who appreciate that our organic almond butter is gluten, vegan, soy, dairy, and sugar free. With a little bit of work, you can quickly take this wonderful, quality health and power food and transform it into delectable treats.

That’s right! Healthy cookies that taste yummy – for real! We have searched for recipes to recommend that are tested and will win over even the reluctant healthy eaters in your life. No one says you have to present the cookies as healthy! Just focus on delicious.

One of the first recipes that caught our eye is Flourless Almond Butter Cookies (6 ingredients) posted by Alicia on VanCity Buzz. She had us right away with an easy ingredient list for minimal effort cookies; and she really sold us when she described them as “pillowy-soft” that you can “eat immediately without guilt.” Enjoy!

For a decadent chocolate cookie that uses organic almond butter, we recommend these Chocolate almond butter cookies with goji berries and coconut posted a registered dietician who blogs about delicious and healthy foods at Chelsea’s Healthy Kitchen. These are dairy, soy, and peanut free, and you only need seven ingredients to make them. While they satisfy that chocolate craving, as Chelsea says, they, “won’t leave you with a sugar hangover.”

Our third choice uses organic almond butter to make Flourless Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies, which Karielyn blogs about over at The Healthy Home. Take note, she says that almond butter (rather than peanut butter) gives, “the most fudgy, moist, melt-in-your-mouth chocolate cookie” that is also vegan, gluten and dairy free, and Paleo-friendly.

We are excited to share delicious recipes that promote healthy living. Please do share your favorites with us, too!
