Gluten Free Coconut Oil Cookies

These cookies ya’ll…. amazing! I first made these cookies when working with my personal chef friend. She often had clients who had allergies and intolerances every recipe we used was usually modified in one way or another. These cookies were a product of substituting this and that in a recipe, but when you would think it might fail — it actually came out AMAZING!

The best part about these cookies is that you can really use any type of nut butter! I’ve tried this recipe with cashew, almond, and peanut butter and they always taste amazing (yes, I’ve made these cookies a lot). I love how they are gluten free and can be adapted to avoid nut allergies by using different butters.

Definitely my new favorite recipe and sure to be yours as well! I’m not going to fully admit it, but I’ll just say that I may or may not eat most of the batch when I make these… just sayin.
