Almond Butter Cookies: A Lunchbox Treat for You and Your Little Ones
I have been making these almond butter cookies way before I even had my son. Years back I was working out and weight training 4+ days a week and enjoyed these cookies as a post-workout treat. Now that I’m baking recipes with my son I decided to bring them back and tweak them slightly. Since he will be enjoying them too, I decided to finely chop the walnuts and dried cranberries. I actually used a food processor to do all the work for me. This is a perfect snack to include in your little ones lunch box and enjoy yourself. Feel free to substitute your children’s favorite dried fruit to customize the cookies to their palette.
Do you have a favorite made-from-scratch treat you include in your little ones lunch box? I would love to hear about them. Leave a comment below.
