These delicious cookies are gluten and dairy free but don’t think they’re going to end up tough, grainy and just downright strange.

They are fluffy and tender. Almond butter adds a nutty flavor, but without being too overpowering. These cookies are perfect with the chocolate chips, but if you’re not a fan of chocolate, use chopped pecans or walnuts (the points are the same).

You can use any gluten free flour blend for the 1 cup of flour. If you can’t have the xanthan gum, use 3 tablespoons of psyllium husk instead. If you don’t need to make gluten free cookies, just use 3 1/4 cups regular wheat flour (the points don’t change for this substitution).

A word of warning – the cookies are best fresh out of the oven and can be a little bit addictive!

PRO TIP: These can be stored at room temperature for up to 3 days. Gluten free flour tends to mold quickly, so store these in the refrigerator to keep them fresh longer.
