    It’s 8pm.

    You just ate dinner.

    You look around the kitchen and see nothing resembling any sort of a dessert (luckily this has never happened to me) and you need a dessert. You need it fast.

    These Vegan Almond Butter Cookies are ready in just 10 minutes! They are so quick, so simple and so easy to make. Plus they all started as a complete accident. I was trying to make some no-bake balls (duh) but in the middle of it, my stomach and mind were all like “gimme da cookies”.

    Naturally I had to listen to my body and cookies it what we went with. Cookies win 99% of the time over here though.

    Jord is acting like a champ over here having no cookies, no chocolate, no NADA for the past couple of weeks. Meanwhile I am shoving every baked good I can find and make into my mouth. I am trying not to make too many new recipes during his Whole30 because I am only one person and there is only so much I can eat, HA!

    That is one thing I realized. I could not be a food blogger completely solo. J helps me with the eating part too much. Between taste testing over a dozen recipes a month and trying out new products, there is a crap load of food over here.

    I was face timing with my mom last week opening packages and showed her what I had received that day. I then proceeded to hysterically cry because I was on overload! I think of all those in need and who are starving in the world. Meanwhile I am opening packages of insane amounts of food everyday. I give a lot of it away but I need to find a go-to place in NYC to donate food to weekly..like ASAP.

    I am of course grateful for what I do and being able to try all of these amazing products, but it definitely is overwhelming at times.

    Thanks for listening to me vent 🙂 Now for these 10-minute Vegan Almond Butter Cookies! Let’s do this…

    WHAT YOU NEED:

    almond butter (I used Meet Eat Paleo – code RACHL for 10% off!)

    oatmeal

    pitted dates (I used medjool)

    almond milk

    baking powder

    vanilla extract

    QUICK NOTES:

    • These cookies can easily be subbed with any other nut butter if almond butter isn’t your thing
    • You can also likely pop them in the fridge or freezer instead of an oven if “no-bake” is more your style
    • These cookies freeze really well so make a stash and keep them on hand, then defrost as you want to eat!

    Wow it’s incredible that you get SO much food; and that’s got to be tough with Jord not being able to eat any of it. I bet there’s an NYC food bank? Also, ALMOND BUTTER COOKIES. Always a fan of nut butter cookies.

    Yum! I wonder if I can make with PB powder? I wonder if the consistency would be off? Looking forward to trying these out tonight!

    Hi, these are going to be my first vegan cookies. What kind of almond butter do you use? Is there a certain brand or name?
    Thanks!

    I’d love to make these right no but I only have soy milk. Will that work instead of almond milk?

      that should work. i personally don’t use soy milk so i haven’t tested but any milk would be fine. hope you love! xx
