These scrumptious almond butter oatmeal cookies are nutty and chocolatey, and are sweetened naturally with maple syrup! Dairy free and gluten free.
Spoon cookie dough onto a baking sheet (you should have enough batter for about 12 cookies). Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, or until cookies are a light golden brown color. If desired, sprinkle with a little coarse sea salt when you remove them from the oven.
-If gluten free, be sure to use certified gluten free oats.
-As these cookies use maple syrup rather than regular sugar, the consistency of the cookie is quite soft. If you are looking for a crispier cookie recipe, this is not an ideal choice.
-Do not cook these on a silicone baking mat – I have found that they do not cook correctly. Use a regular metal baking sheet for best results.
