It’s many many years ago and I’m in the 5th grade, making Peanut Butter cookies with my class. The cookbook is actually pages of sketched step-by-step instructions stapled together, this was my introduction to cooking and I realized I loved to cook. There were probably 5 to 6 different recipes, but the one I fell in love with was Peanut Butter cookies, I made them over and over again, I was happy and so was my family.

It’s many many years ago and I’m in the 5th grade, making Peanut Butter cookies with my class. The cookbook is actually pages of sketched step-by-step instructions stapled together, this was my introduction to cooking and I realized I loved to cook. There were probably 5 to 6 different recipes, but the one I fell in love with was Peanut Butter cookies, I made them over and over again, I was happy and so was my family.
Fast forward to modern day and the Peanut Butter cookie is now Almond Butter or any other nut butter other than peanut, because I have a child with a peanut allergy.

So the recipe I’m sharing today is an Almond Butter cookie adapted from Vegan Yumminess, Vegan Peanut Butter cookie. If you’re vegan or just want some tasty eats that just happen to be vegan, check out Vegan Yumminess.

Vegan Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies, thin, crispy, chewy cookies made with almond butter and studded with slivered almonds and dark chocolate chops!My version is a bit thinner with a crispy, chewy bite, because the almond butter I used was a thinner brand, (Target Simply Balanced All Natural Creamy Almond Butter) the thicker the nut butter, the thicker the cookie. I also traded cornstarch for arrowroot, (I didn’t have cornstarch) and I added dark chocolate chips and sliced almonds.
