Nut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Ok, before the Paleo Police call me out on this recipe, these really aren’t “Paleo” since they use oatmeal. However, for a grain, oatmeal works pretty well for the occasional indulgence in our house. Superman tolerates it now, so sometimes it’s nice to have something different. I hesitated on posting this since it’s not grain-free if made as suggested. But I don’t need to be an ingredient Nazi, right? I think you’re all grown ups and can handle the occasional recipe like this. Am I right? You could make these without the oatmeal, and increase the almond flour by about a 1/2 cup, and they would still probably work. However, I haven’t tried it, so I can’t guarantee the results! If you try it without the oatmeal, come back and let me know how it turned out!

Recipe: Nut Butter Oatmeal Cookies (makes about 4 dozen)

3 cups almond flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp gluten-free, aluminum-free baking powder

1 tsp salt

1 cup oatmeal

1/2 cup butter or coconut oil, melted

3/4 cup almond butter or peanut butter

3/4 cup pure maple syrup

1 egg

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, beat together the melted butter or coconut oil, almond/peanut butter, syrup, egg and vanilla. Stir in remaining ingredients until well combined. Scoop onto baking sheet and gently press down a bit. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until golden brown, but not overdone. Let cool on wire rack for a few minutes before eating.
