Dear Internet, here is yet another cookie recipe. One more to add to your "Cheat Day" Pinterest board between the caramel fudge marshmallow brownies and your Snickers Salad. I like the occasional sweet treat, but I could live without them if need be. That's why I tend not to do a lot of baking posts on Cooking with BS, but these cookies are not overly sweet and they're somewhat healthy. I mean they have sage leaves and almonds in them, what more could you want? Still healthier than whatever the hell is in a Snickers Salad. 

Almond Butter & Sage Cookies

Yields 48 cookies

  • 2 1/2 cups AP Flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 cup Avocado Oil (yeah I'm fancy)
  • 2/3 cup smooth Almond Butter
  • 12 Tablespoons Butter melted
  • 1/3 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 large Egg
  • 1 large Egg Yolk
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract (homemade if possible)
  • 6 Large Sage Leaves minced
  • 48 Almonds
  1. Preheat your oven to 350┬░.
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. This recipe is pretty easy, just mix in the rest using a rubber spatula. Stir until all ingredients are incorporated and you've formed a dough ball. 
  3. Place in the fridge for 5 minutes. 
  4. Using a teaspoon sized scooper make 12 small dough balls. Evenly spaced on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Using a fork smash the balls into an imperfect dish-like shape. Place one on each cookie.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes rotating the baking sheet halfway through baking.
  6. Enjoy!
