In need of a healthy treat for road trips this summer? These date-sweetened, flourless almond butter cookies pack well and are adored by children...a treat you can feel good about giving!

I have not tried this recipe using other nut or seed butters yet. It's possible the recipe might work using roasted cashew butter or roasted sunflower seed butter. I've also only made these with eggs but since the recipe uses just one egg you might be able to replace it with a "chia egg" (1 tablespoon finely ground chia seeds whisked with 3 tablespoons of warm water).

These cookies are delicious!

These look incredibly moist and delicious. I am going to make these right now!

These sound great! What would you recommend as an egg substitute in these?

These were yummy!

We are on the road quite a bit so these would be perfect, especially for my boys. I can't wait to try them!

That is definitely my kind of cookie, Ali! I love making flourless cookies with nut butter, but so far have stuck to brown sugar, coconut sugar, or honey. I can't wait to try your combo of dates and maple syrup! These would also be great to use for Cookie S'mores. We use my flourless cookies for that purpose and they're wonderful. :-) Must share this recipe on All Gluten-Free Desserts soon!

These look great! I love the idea of making these into ice cream sandwiches :)
