Use natural runny nut butter for best results. You can use almond butter, peanut, cashew, hemp, sunflower seed or any other type of nut/seed butter.

Maple syrup is an all natural sweetener that I love using in my recipes. You can also use agave, honey or date syrup.

Vanilla extract adds a lovely flavor.

Almond flour keeps this recipe gluten free.

I used a 1:1 gluten free flour blend, however you can also substitute oat flour or all purpose flour instead. Be sure to use certified gluten free oats if you are gluten intolerant.

Baking powder helps these cookies rise.

Salt balances out all the flavors.

Use dairy free chocolate chips to keep this recipe vegan, otherwise you can use any type of chocolate chips or chocolate chunk.
