Course: Dessert
Keyword: dairy-free, gluten free, Paleo, peanut-free
Servings: 10 cookies


Cookie Ingredients

  • ½ cup almond butter
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 egg can sub with 1 flax egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ cup cassava flour

Filling Ingredients

  • ½ cup almond butter


For the Cookies

  • Preheat oven to 350℉.
  • Beat together the almond butter and coconut sugar in a stand mixer with a paddle attachment or hand mixer with beaters.
  • Once fluffy and light in color, stop mixing. Scrape down the sides and add the egg.
  • Beat again until the egg is combined, then add the rest of the dry ingredients.
  • Once a thick dough ball is formed, scoop it onto a large piece of parchment paper and press it into a rectangle shape.
  • Place another large piece of parchment paper over that, and using a rolling pin, roll into a thin sheet, about ¼” thick (if you notice the dough is too sticky, sprinkle some extra cassava flour where you feel is needed).
  • Punch out large circles or ovals.
  • Transfer to a parchment-lined sheet, and pinch the circles or ovals in the centers of each so it makes a peanut-like shape. Score lines vertically and horizontally to make the “grid” pattern.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes. Let cool completely.


  • Spread 1-2 teaspoons of almond butter on the bottom of one cookie and sandwich another cookie on top of that. Repeat until all cookies are used up. Enjoy!

The cooking time was way to long, for my oven . They came out hard as a rock . I think 10-11 , if you have a hot oven, I’ll try again though

Oh no sorry to hear they came out too hard! Ovens vary in temperature sometimes which can make baking so tricky! You want these to come out crunchy, so I suggest checking on them between 8-12 minutes! Good Luck 🙂
