Why do you use almond butter?
There are a few reasons to use almond butter instead of peanut butter.
First off, almonds usually are processed with less pesticides than peanuts.
Almonds are actually a nut, where as peanuts are a legume (say that 10x without laughing – I dare you, haha!)
Almond butter is slightly healthier than peanut butter because it has more vitamins, minerals, and fiber.
Now, if you don’t have almond butter, you can use peanut butter as a substitute.
LOW CARB ALMOND BUTTER COOKIES!!
1 cup all natural smooth almond butter
½ cup of unsalted softened butter
1 cup of cup for cup sugar substitute (I used a stevia blend)
1 cup of almond flour
1 teaspoon of aluminum free baking powder
½ teaspoon sea salt
1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Using an electric mixer, beat well the almond butter, butter, sugar-substitute, and egg.
3. Add in the almond flour, baking powder and salt.
4. Stir the mixture until well blended.
5. Drop a tablespoon amount of dough to form cookie dough balls and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
6. Bake in a 350-degree oven until lightly brown around the edges around 10-12 min.
7. Store leftovers in the refrigerator.

What’s the carb count in this?
Hey Christine! I’ve never tried to calculate this one and I tend not to suggest people count carbs and calories but try to make healthier decisions in general, although I know many people like to calculate exactly!
If you decide to do a calc for yourself using the ingredients I’d love to hear what you come up with!
