Gluten-Free Almond Butter & Jelly Cookies



Love trying new cookie recipes, and this one is adapted from Elana’s Pantry (  I used almond butter instead of peanut butter since wanted to try something different, and also changed a couple other things in the recipe since I’m a proponent of ‘use what you have.’  I was happy with the result!



1/2 cup almond butter

1/4 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1.25 cups almond meal

Dash of sea salt

1/4 cup jelly

In a large bowl, mix together the almond butter, coconut oil, sugar, and egg.  Add in the almond meal and salt.  I also added a little water to the mix.

Scoop dough out by the tablespoon onto a parchment lined baking sheet.  Make a thumbprint in the center of each cookie and put the jelly in.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes and let cool before serving.
