Paleo Almond Cookies

Greetings, friends! Lucky for me, Hubby has cooked most of our meals recently, so I have fewer experiments to post about! I did try a new cookie recipe a few days ago, though, and wanted to share it. It is from Take Back the Kitchen, and the cookies are “paleo” because they follow the paleo or “caveman” diet. As such, they are gluten-free and milk-free. They have one egg, but for anyone that can’t eat eggs I am sure a substitute would work well. I hope you enjoy them!

As a side note, please MEASURE CAREFULLY. I did not, and the cookies I made needed a bit less of what I put too much of (almond butter), and a little more of what I didn’t add enough of (honey). Also, these cookies did NOT spread well, so shape them if you want them to look round and pretty (I neglected to do this). Since my cookies turned out really almond butter-y, I used them as breakfast cookies, or topped them with a little extra honey for an afternoon protein pick-me-up. Yummmm.

Cooling. I probably should have shaped them better,
but I am used to cookies that spread out and end up round!
