Granola bars are great snacks to pack for an easy lunch, but they can be sneaky sources of added sugar. You can make your own homemade granola bars, or you can take it one step further with these healthier almond butter cookies!
Who doesn’t want to eat cookies? And with no sugar added, the agave and dried fruit add just the right amount of sweetnes. The hint of cinnamon and nutmeg make these perfect for the holiday season!
Here’s how to make them:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, combine the almond butter, coconut oil, egg, agave and vanilla extract and stir until well combined. Mix in the rest of the ingredients. Using a round cookie cutter, press the ingredients onto the baking sheet. Bake for about 16 minutes, or until the cookies have browned and firmed up a bit.
We packed our almond butter cookies in our alien bento box with some cheese and crackers, banana slices, carrots and a hard-boiled egg. We brought some more brightness and fun to this lunch with our nature picks and bunny egg mold creativity tools!
