Baking is a science – a delicate balance of the right proportions of ingredients and chemical reactions that take place to transform raw ingredients into deliciously guilt-free baked creations.

Baking is more difficult than cooking - it’s easier to add ingredients to “fix” a dish than it is to “fix” a baked product.

The key to successful baking is to use what I call “base recipes”, which are basic recipes with basic flavors that have been baked successfully. The recipes can be used as a fall-back and rarely fail. After finding a good base recipe and successfully baking it, I then build on it, experimenting with ingredients and ratios to make it entirely different.

I found this base flourless peanut butter cookie recipe on Food Network. Why do I like it? Not only is it Paleo-friendly with some adjustments, but since Paleo baking is heavily dependent on nuts, this recipe can be made with any nut butter to instantly make it an entirely new recipe or new cookie!

Paleo Almond Butter Cookies

This is a wonderful nut cookie recipe base - experiment with different nut butters and Paleo-friendly add-ins, like chocolate chips from Navitas Naturals Cacao Nibs, coconut shreds, chopped nuts, etc.



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or use a Silpat mat.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix all the ingredients except the coarse sea salt, until well combined.
  4. Spoon 1 tablespoon of mixture about 1 inch apart onto parchment-lined baking sheets.
  5. Flatten the mounds with a fork and make a crosshatch (or other) pattern on the cookies.
  6. Sprinkle coarse salt on top of the cookies.
  7. Bake about 10 minutes or until golden around edges, switching the position of the pans halfway thorough baking.
  8. Transfer freshly-baked cookies to a cooling rack and let rest.

Hiya! Does it matter if the almond butter is chunky? Do you think the cookies would turn out well either way?
