Peanut free almond butter cookies that are free from dairy and any fake ingredients. These sugary delights taste like the peanut butter cookies my mom used to make for us growing up. If you know my mom, you know here cookies are the stuff binge eating dreams are made of!
Preheat oven to 350°.
Grease a cookie sheet or use parchment paper to keep the cookies from sticking to you pan of choice.
Mix the first 6 ingredients into a large mixing bowl in the order they are listed. Add in the 7th (chocolate chips) if you wish.
Use a tablespoon to measure each cookie. Roll each in a ball. Use a fork to gently flatten the cookie using a hatched pattern.
Set your timer for 10 minutes, you may need to leave the cookies in for 11 minutes but start checking at 10 to make sure they are not burning. OR let a batch get a little extra crispy like I do since my Dad seems to like them that way!
It is important to space these cookies out on the pan. They will expand out to almost double their pre-baking size.
