Healthy 5 Ingredient Gluten Free Nut Butter Cookies


Healthy five ingredient nut butter cookies yes please! I have a huge sweet tooth and have a sweet treat every night. As much as I love eating sweets I love to bake as well. These cookies are loaded with nut butter, dates, vanilla, an egg, chocolate chips and peanuts. One of my favorite nut butters is Nutzo  it is a seven seed and nut mixture that is full of nutty good ness. The dates add sweetness and are a natural sugar with a ton of nutritional benefits therefore make these cookies on the healthier side. These cookies come together in 20 minutes and are perfect for an after school snack or post dinner treat. Be prepared these get gobbled up quickly so you might want to make a double batch.
