Perfectly soft and chewy almond butter cookies. They happen to be healthier than your average cookie, gluten-free, and of course vegan.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
To a small bowl, combine flax seed meal and water. Set aside for 5 minutes. To a large mixing bowl, add flax egg, softened coconut oil, almond butter, milk, vanilla, and coconut sugar. Use a handheld mixer to combine until creamy and smooth. Add almond flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Use a wooden spoon or spatula to combine until a soft dough forms.
Use a small cookie scoop to distribute dough on to the baking sheet. I was able to fit 12 on one baking sheet (3x4). Bake for 12-15 minutes. until edges are light golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack (important!).
(Optional) Drizzle with dark chocolate and/or smother on more almond butter on top.
*If your coconut oil is hard, microwave for 10-15 seconds until soft (make sure it doesn't melt!). Otherwise, it should be the right texture at room temperature.
