For the past few weeks I’ve been staying with family so there has been a lot of cooking and eating. I’m not sure if it’s because of the holiday season, but we always get sugar cravings, especially for cookies! My sister and her daughter both have a severe allergy towards nuts so I decided to create a simple nut-free chocolate cookie recipe made from soy nut butter.
Soy nut butter is a peanut butter alternative based on roasted whole soybeans. It’s similar to peanut butter in taste and texture and is cholesterol free. If you can’t find chocolate soy nut butter, just use regular soy nut butter with more cocoa powder to taste.
Nut-Free Chocolate Cookies with Soy Nut Butter Recipe
1 cup chocolate soy nut butter
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup sugar or vanilla sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 tablespoon butter or coconut oil, melted
a pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
In a bowl, mix all ingredients together. Form into 1-inch balls and place on a cookie sheet. With the bottom of a glass, press down firmly on cookies. Bake for 7-8 minutes and cool on cookie rack.
Total Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 16-20 cookies
