Almond Flour Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
















Is there ever a bad time for a cookie? Think about it, no matter what diet you're on, no matter what time of the year, or what major event is going on in your life, we always find a way to make room for a cookie! Why? Probably because cookies have a way of lifting us up, warming our souls, and helping everything in life seem that much better. Plus, they're so dang tasty!

So how do we make a cookie just a little bit better for us? How do we remove the guilt that typically comes after said cookie has been enjoyed? Simply put, it's all in the ingredients.

With a little help from our gluten-free, paleo friendly Blanched Almond Flour and the newest addition to our Honeyville family, our Organic Peanut Butter Powder, we've created a clean, delicious, mouth watering cookie that will melt your heart without all that sugar and guilt. It's time for Almond Flour Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies!
