Salted Almond Butter Oat Cookie

We’ve teamed up with Barney Butter to bring you this recipe, and there’s also a giveaway on the Instagram feed this week for their product. When making this, I wanted to create something that was simple and delicious, then it morphed into a bar, which I’m totally OK with. On its own, our low/no sugar kid says this is new favorite cookie. While it’s not Paleo, it’s so simple that you can swap the oat flour for something else.

Free and Friendly Foods Almond Cookie Candy

Almond Cookie Candy

I was ready to deem this a fail, until we realized it had great a taste and a unique application. My first thought was to make it into a fondant-like paste for Paleo treats. However, it seemed to break apart after too much use. We were able to make the “idea” of a gum paste flower, as seen in one of the pictures. If you’ve ever eaten a Tootsie Roll, that’s what these have the texture of. They’re like a chewy/toffee/candy/cookie. I know, amazing that something so strange could be so many things at once. It has so many talents 🙂 If I had to go back and do it again (which I will at some point), I’d leave them as dough balls. The dough was really good. Or, I’d make freezer fudge.

Sunflower Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is another installment of the Nut Butter Cookies Series. I was so inspired at the grocery store to see all of the little packs of nut and seed butters. It has allowed me to create small batches of cookies to test ideas without having to take the plunge and purchase jars and jars of butters (which we all know can add up to a small fortune).

I don’t know what else to call these but little bites of joy. There are corn free notes below so that you too can enjoy these. Take this advice however: make small batches. If you don’t, you’ll gain 10 pounds. Yes, they’re that tasty.

Allergy Status: Wheat/Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Peanut Free, Yeast Free, Cane/Refined Sugar Free, Sesame Free, Legume Free, Nightshade Free, Diabetic Friendly, Paleo, Vegan, GAPs Compatible, Corn Free Compatible, Low Histamine Compatible

For Low Histamine: Omit chocolate chips.
For GAPs: Use choice or combination of coconut and almond flour. Omit chocolate chips.
For Corn Free: Source safe ingredients, and use safe chocolate chips. I personally use Once Again since they don’t use corn derivatives. Other major brands have CF products that share lines with corn derivatives. Pascha chocolate is corn free.

Free and Friendly Foods Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

Peanut Butter Jelly Thumbprint Cookies Recipe

After having success with the Peanut Butter Dough Ball Bites, I decided to go all in and try something else. As a kid, I LOVED peanut butter and jelly. But here’s the thing: I only ate them separately. If you were to make me a sandwich, I’d take it apart. Lick the jelly off the bread, then lick the peanut butter off the bread, then eat the bread, careful to eat the lower right corner last. Yes, I know I was a weird little kid. Point is, I love the idea of PB & J.

About 2 years ago, I discovered Inna Jam, and to my surprise, it didn’t make me sick. It has got to be the only jam I’ve found without extra junk and they source their fruit from a few safe farms that I can eat from. It’s worth the $10 + price tag, especially Peach. Oh the joy. I digress.

I normally don’t like baked cookies (both Kid Two and I are much more dough people). However, these were great. I had first thought about just making more dough balls and using the jam as a dip, but I thought I’d go wild and try something else. The Papa loved these, and he’s like, wait, these are Grain Free? Let me have another one! I can also testify to their goodness, especially after they’ve cooled completely and the next day too. And yes, I did eat 2 for breakfast 🙂

Free and Friendly Foods Peanut Butter Dough Ball Bites

Peanut Butter Dough Ball Bites Recipe

No kidding, I just made theeee most yummy recipe! I started with the thought that I wanted to create something really simply. Also something safe for lots of people. Everyone who ate them seriously loved them, and it was a battle to see who would get the last bite.

If you can’t have peanuts, or don’t enjoy the taste, this is one of those recipes that I’ve purposely made simple so those who need to substitute can do so easily. It’s a one-for-one exchange for your favorite nut, seed, or legume butter. I wouldn’t recommend watermelon seed butter with this recipe.

Full disclosure and fair warning: these are highly addictive. It’s easy to eat way more than you intended, and I’m sure some people out there could down the whole batch in one go. Want to have some extra fun with these? Drizzle with or dunk in melted chocolate.

Allergy Status: Wheat/Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Yeast Free, Corn Free, Cane/Refined Sugar Free, Sesame Free, Nightshade Free, Diabetic Friendly, GAPs, Vegan, Peanut Free Compatible, Legume Free Compatible, Paleo Compatible

For Peanut Free, Legume Free, and Paleo: Use 4 ounces of a nut or seed butter of choice. Sunflower Butter would be an excellent selection.
