1/2 cup almond or peanut butter, sugar-free

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup coconut sugar– or regular sugar if you aren’t on the paleo diet

1 medium egg


Preheat oven to 350˚. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. Blend the egg and nut butter of choice separate bowl. Combine all ingredients thoroughly, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place cookies about two inches apart, using a heaping teaspoon to measure cookie batter for each cookie. This should be precisely enough batter to make a dozen regular-sized cookies. Note that the appearance and texture of the cookies will slightly vary depending on what kind of nut butter you use. They should be chewy and semi-raw on the inside and a little crispy on the outside. Bake for 9 minutes, remove pan from oven, let sit for a minute and remove the cookies onto a cooling rack or cool surface. Eat!
