Gluten-free almond butter cookie

Gluten-free almond butter cookie

We can’t have peanut butter cookies because of my daughter’s allergy, I decided to make them fully almond. They are also gluten-free, but you don’t even notice. You can also make them vegan by replacing the egg by  flax seeds. They are really crunchy and good!

It is a great recipe to make to reuse the almond pulp you get when you make almond milk.
