I've tried these almond butter cookies with several different brands of almond butter, and it really does make a difference in how the cookies turn out. My favorite is Trader Joe's Crunchy Almond Butter (the salted version). This recipe uses the whole jar, so no measuring is required.
The crunchy almond butter adds chopped nuts without having to chop them. And it's salty enough that you don't need to add salt to the cookies. (If you do use unsalted almond butter, just be sure to add a pinch of fine sea salt to the batter.)
Whatever brand you use, be sure it's a natural almond butter that doesn't have any added emulsifiers or sugar. The ingredients on the label should be just almonds and salt.
To make it even easier, stir the jar with a nut butter mixer. This little gadget is my new favorite kitchen tool. It screws onto the top of the jar and mixes the oil back into the nut butter without splashing.
These gluten-free chocolate chip cookies are amazingly warm and gooey, right out of the oven. To take them over the top, make an ice cream sandwich with two giant-size cookies and a scoop of your favorite flavor of ice cream—dairy-free, of course!
