Prep time: 35 minutes                   Cook time: 12-15 minutes                            Level: Easy


  • 2.5 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1.5 Tablespoons Nikki’s Coconut Butter, flavor of choice (We used Dark Chocolate Fudge for this one)
  • 1 Tablespoons raw honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup almond flour


                Microwave the butter, coconut butter, honey, and salt for 60 seconds, or until just melted, stirring every 15 seconds. Be careful not to burn the butters. Pour melted mixture into a mixing bowl and add the almond flour, mixing with a wooden spoon until well-combined.

                By spoonful, shape the dough into flattened disks. Place on a lined baking sheet 1.5 inches apart, and bake at 325o until the edges begin to brown, about 12-15 minutes. The centers will still be soft when you remove the cookies from the oven. Then, allow the cookies to cool completely before serving.
