Nut Butter Delights (any kind)


1 cup nut butter of choice (I’ve used peanut butter, almond butter, dark chocolate peanut butter, and sunbutter – all are delicious!)

1 egg (or equivalent egg substitute if desired)

2 teaspoons baking powder

sweetener: either agave, splenda, xylosweet, organic sugar, honey… or anything that suits you (if you are okay with sugar, use a half cup) – to taste


1. Preheat oven to 350 F

2. Mix nut butter, egg, baking powder, sweetener in medium bowl (or large, if you double the recipe… this makes about a dozen small cookies if I remember correctly)

3. Scoop out with a spoon and either roll them in a coating of your choice (i.e. crushed roasted nuts, sugar, etc.) or place about an inch apart on parchment paper laid over a baking sheet

*if desired, you may press them with a fork into the traditional pattern

4. Once oven is ready, place in oven for 6-8 minutes (or until the bottoms become browned)

5. Remove, let cool

6. Enjoy! (with soy milk, rice milk, or whatever you so desire to compliment the yummy richness of the cookies!)

*note: this recipe can be altered to include chocolate… if you would like, you can include chocolate chips in the batter, or you can hollow out a portion in the middle of each cookie with a spoon once they are about 3-4 min along, and place chocolate in the hollow while they finish cooking

These are incredibly easy cookies, and have yet to fail me. Yum!
