almond butter oatmeal cookies
A hearty cookie this is! Perfect for breakfast, dessert, or a delicious snack while you spend the day adventuring out on the trail. Slightly sweet and chewy, this pairs perfectly with a steamy latté or hot tea.
1 cup almond butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon molasses
1 cup rolled oats (use gluten free oats if you prefer)
1/3 cup slivered almonds
1/3 cup milk chocolate chips (substitute dried cranberries if you prefer)
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Using a hand or stand mixer, beat together eggs, sugar and molasses.
Add almond butter, baking soda, salt, vanilla and oats.

Place heaping spoonfuls onto a baking sheet (lightly greased or use cooking parchment).
Bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool on a rack.
