Quick Vegan Almond Butter Cookies

These cookies are not only addicting, but are super easy to make and barely need any ingredients. They are more of a cookie brittle, but I prefer harder cookies over soft ones. The almond butter gives it a unique taste and makes the cookie almost sticky with the taste. I wanted something close to a peanut butter cookie and I think this one has hit the mark. You could also add some chocolate chips or mini m&ms to add something extra if you wish, however I think they are great on their own.

This ragout is both super easy to make and delicious. I increased the cooking time for the potatoes as mine weren’t brown until about 7 minutes in.
