Almond Butter Cookies
Yield: 24 Prep time: 5 minutes Bake time: 10 minutes
These can be baked immediately or the dough stored in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. You can also freeze the logs and defrost in the refrigerator for about 4 hours before slicing and baking.
In a medium-sized bowl, mix cookie ingredients together by hand. Transfer dough to a sheet of wax paper and form into a log about 10” long. Refrigerate, freeze, or slice and bake 10–12 minutes until browning around the edges.
Log can be rolled in chopped almonds and/or drizzled with a combination of powdered sugar and maple syrup.

These cookies are as good for breakfast as they are after a meal!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine nuts and coconut on a cookie sheet and drizzle coconut oil and salt over the mixture. Blend well by tossing together with your hands. Spread evenly on the sheet and bake 10 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool completely.
Whisk egg whites until frothy. Gradually add sugar and whip until stiff. Add vanilla, blending thoroughly. Fold nut mixture into whites until completely incorporated. Drop by large spoonfuls onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Bake 10–12 minutes, until golden. Cool completely and store in an airtight container.
