I recently decided to try Costco’s Kirkland brand of almond butter. I was a bit hesitant at first, but after letting it sit on my counter for weeks I finally tried it. And you know what? It’s pretty darn good…and much cheaper than other almond butters out there. As is typical of most Costco products, it took me weeks to consume it all so I decided to bake up some almond butter cookies with what was left.
These almond butter cookies bake up slightly crispy on the outside yet gooey and chewy on the inside. All quite remarkable considering there’s absolutely no flour in the recipe! The cookies have a wonderful salty sweet taste and the vanilla extract and brown sugar add great flavor. The crunchy peanuts and soft chocolate chips make this cookies memorable.
