Almond Butter Cookies

Since I’ve been pregnant, our mealtimes have become pretty monotonous. Like I’ve said before, our Crock-Pot is a permanent fixture on the counter and I feel like we rotate the same breakfasts, dinners and snacks every single week. Even down to the cookie dough that I make Eric – every week, it’s the same ol’ same ol’.

I’m slowly getting my big-bellied self back into the kitchen and within the last week or so, we’ve been trying to mix up mealtime. Seriously, you can only eat Crock-Pot pulled pork and chocolate chips cookies so many times before their deliciousness turns into blah-ness.

Last week, we actually took some time to develop a meal plan (thank you, Pinterest) which included a new pasta dish, soup and of course a new dessert/snack recipe in the form of Almond Butter Cookies. With a little planning and working together in the kitchen, we were out of our mealtime rut in no time.

The star of our weekly meal plan was definitely this recipe for Almond Butter Cookies. Crunchy Jif Almond Butter paired perfectly with oatmeal and semisweet chocolate to create a deliciously chewy, slightly crunchy, satisfying cookie. They’re perfect for dessert, a lunchtime treat or a 3:00AM snack with an ice cold glass of milk – just sayin’!

Tips for Mixing Up Mealtime

– Use food blogs, Facebook, Pinterest and sites like Jif.com to get a little inspiration. Jot down, Pin or bookmark your favorite recipes to save them for later.

– Get your family in on the planning and cooking action. Get their recipe input and then put them to work in the kitchen – you’re sure to make some amazing memories.

– Scan store shelves for exciting new products like no-stir nut butters from Jif. They’re delicious and a great alternative to peanut butter on everything from toast to apples.

I made these for a family reunion and everyone loved them! I followed the recipe exactly and then sprinkled just a bit of finishing salt on the tops before baking.

These were absolutely delicious. I had Whole Foods 365 Almond Butter on hand and used that, but followed the recipe verbatim otherwise. Everyone at the potluck raved about them!!
