Kitchen Sink Cookies

16 Mar

These cookies have no flour in them. None. It’s like magic. They get their name from my quest to find something to put in them (the original recipe called for chocolate chips and nuts). I scoured the kitchen, and came up with about a cup of trail mix – dried cherries, raisins, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds, walnuts, cashews and the occasional hazelnut. Into the batter it went, and the result was delicious.

  • 1 cup almond butter
  • 3/4 cup light or dark brown sugar (I used sucanat)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 C treats of your choices – dried fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, etc.
  1. Preheat oven to 325
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  3. In a large bowl, stir almond butter and sugars together until well combined
  4. Add egg, baking soda, honey, vanilla and salt and mix well
  5. Stir in your treats
  6. Using a teaspoon, scoop out small, walnut-sized amounts of dough and roll them in your hands to form a ball
  7. Place on cookie sheet about 1 inch apart
  8. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, until lightly browned (be sure to rotate your pans halfway through baking to ensure even browning)
  9. Cool for 5 minutes
