  • 1 cup Simply Nicki’s Maple Almond Butter

  • 6 tbsp sugar (raw is preferred- but you can use another. We like Monk sugar too.)

  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

  • Cooking spray or cooking oil for greasing cookie sheet


Preheat oven to 350°F and place the racks in the upper and lower third. Lightly grease or spray two nonstick baking sheets with cooking spray - or wipe with a tablespoon of cooking oil.

In a medium bowl, mix the almond butter, sugar and egg. Combine well. Place 1 level tablespoon of the mixture about 1 inch apart onto baking sheets - using a spoon - or rolling into a ball in your hands.

Flatten the rounded mounds with a fork, creating a crosshatch pattern on the tops of each cookie.

Bake until edges are a golden brown, about 10 minutes, rotating the position of the sheets halfway through the bake.

Let cool completely before removing from the cookie sheet.
