  • 1/4 cup almond butter (white, smooth)
  • 1/4 cup white sugar (make sure it's vegan!)
  • 1/4 cup rice milk (or any plant-based milk)
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Decoration (optional)


  • Pre-heat the oven to 360°F/ 180°C.
  • In a mixing bowl, add the almond butter, sugar, and rice milk. Use a hand mixer to combine the ingredients.
  • Add the flour and baking powder and mix again. The ingredients should come together. Use your hands to form a ball. You can use additional flour if it’s too sticky.
  • Put the ball of dough into a container or cover in plastic wrap and let it chill in the fridge for 1/2 hour.
  • Put the chilled dough onto a lightly floured parchment paper and roll it out.
  • Cut out the cookies and place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake them at 360°F/180°C for approximately 8 minutes or until the edges get slightly brown.
  • Let them cool off completely. To store them: Put them into an air-tight container at room temperature. They should be fine for at least a week!
  • Optional: Then you can decorate them. Heat the dark chocolate in a double boiler, brush the cookies with the chocolate coating. Add a sprinkle of shredded coconut onto each cookie. Enjoy!


Storage: Let them cool off completely. Then put them into an air-tight container and store at room temperature for up to a week - maybe longer! :)
