Almond Butter Blossoms

Hi Guys!  I, Kate, have gone into the archives again and pulled out this amazing cookie recipe.  I looooved Peanut Butter Blossoms back in the day; you know the peanut butter cookies with the chocolate kiss in the middle?  Well, I used that as inspiration and developed a paleo friendly version using almond butter and enjoy life chocolate.

These are super simple to throw together, quick baking and ready to satisfy your sweet tooth in no time!  I often make these around the holidays for the holiday cookie plate or even a cookie swap.  But mostly, I just make them so I can eat them myself!

Notes: Almond butter has become more mainstream since I started eating paleo and there are a lot more brands, I used the freshly ground kind from Whole Foods.  I find it makes the best baked goods since it doesn’t have any extra oil.  If you use the jarred kind, you may need to add a tablespoon or so of almond flour to counter the oil.
