- ½ Cup butter or coconut oil (softened)
- ¾ Cup coconut sugar or pure cane sugar
- ½ cup unsweetened, salted almond butter
- ½ cup light brown sugar
- 2 large Eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 ¼ cup Gluten Free All Purpose Flour Blend (or standard all purpose flour)

PREP: Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
COMBINE WET INGREDIENTS: In a large bowl or stand mixer, beat butter or coconut oil and sugar on medium speed until the mixture has a whipped texture. Then add the almond butter, syrup, eggs and vanilla; beat well. COMBINE THE DRY INGREDIENTS: In a medium bowl, whisk together flour blend, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. With the mixer on low speed, slowly add the dry mixture to the wet mixture until just combined. Using a wooden spoon, fold in ⅔ cup of almonds.
MAKE THE COOKIES: Using a tablespoon or cookie scoop, scoop dough into mounded tablespoon-sized balls. Roll out the dough and dip the dough balls into the remaining sliced almonds and place them on the prepared cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack to cool completely
