These were quite the hit last time, so I decided to do another go around, this time with such things as coconut nectar, hemp seeds, and chia seeds. Almond butter cookies truly are a treat. Hmm. I have a couple jars of natural peanut butter in my cupboard, and I'm thinking of peanut butter cookies next time ...
These are not the same as the first ones. They are not like parallel universe cookies or anything, but they depart a little in substance and in result. Coconut nectar is fruity where coconut sugar is secretive and dark, and I thought that fruitines might be fun with the dominant smooth nuttiness of the almond butter this time. I think I was right!
My son enjoyed these very much, and I gotta tell you they are quite rich and satisfying. A good little energy boost when an energy boost is needed ...
