Carob Almond Butter Cookies

Carob Almond Butter Cookies

2 cups quick oats

1/2 cup quinoa or almond flour

1/3 cup carob powder

1/4 cup xylitol sweetener

1/2 teaspoon powdered stevia

1 teaspoon salt

Mix dry ingredients and add:

1 cup almond butter (cut into the flour mixture)

Add:

1/4 cup melted coconut oil

3/4 cup water

10 drops liquid stevia

Mix together well.  Form cookie dough into balls using a hefty Tablespoon.  Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Press down to 1/2 inch thick with fingers.  Bake 350F for 8 – 10 minutes.  Be sure not to over-bake or the cookies will be too dry.

I put together this recipe because I was hungry for the “no bake” cookies that I had when I could eat about anything.  Those were made with peanut butter and sugar and oatmeal and were heated in a pan and then spooned onto wax paper to cool.  These Carob Almond Butter Cookies have that same moist fudgey texture, but not as sweet.  Let me know if you try them and what you think?
