Low Carb Almond Sesame Butter Cookies, yummmm

Ok, I am in love with this particular recipe. I am always having fun experimenting in my kitchen trying to come up with yet another low carb wonder. If your not a baker, you just may not understand why I am so thrilled. You see when you are baking with regular sugars and flours baking is truly a piece of cake, pun intended. I know I could hear all the screams now from all the non-bakers. But frankly, it’s just so much easier to make the junkie stuff, so not fair.

Nevertheless, this way of baking and eating is now the path we choose for better health. However, it can get a little pricy with the cost of almond flour being as high as it is. So if a recipe flops it’s a major disappointment. This means that I really have to trust what I have learned and just go for it when creating a new recipe. Thankfully, there hasn’t been too many of those.  This recipe is a homerun in my book.

Not sure if it’s because the almond and sesame butter is made fresh, or the lovely combination of both flavors, all I know is that I am very pleased with the results.

Enjoy the recipe! If you are a South Florida local and would prefer to order a batch already made email me at http://www.fittoservgroup@gmail.com for details.

    This looks great. Want to try. I make almond butter and Tahini but don’t add extra oil. if you let it keep mixing, it will make its own oil. It takes a little time and I push it down from the sides of the processor with a spatula when it becomes thick, but trust me, you don’t need extra oil when making nut butters.
