Almond Butter Cookies {Sugar Free}

These cookies have an incredible dimension of flavour to them that you will love! It's almost like you can't put your finger on what you're tasting when you eat these delicious cookies. They have a hint of lemon flavor amongst the inviting almond flavor. Trust me, it's delectable!

They're light and fluffy with a nice buttery consistency, and the couple of slivered almonds over top add a slight crunch in the centre. These are also super quick and easy to make! It's the perfect festive Christmas or New Year's cookie!

These cookies are also refined sugar free! Here we're using coconut sugar. I feel a lot better over Christmas time when I can bake things that are healthier, and not load up quite so much on the typical sugary Christmas treats. I'm sure you feel the same way! Well, these are just as good as sugary sweets, but instead guilt free! Doesn't that sound so epic?!
