A Touch Of Salt





Yes it’s another biscuit post, but in my opinion you can never have too many biscuit recipes – and believe me when I say that you will absolutely thank me once you try this one out! These are certainly a far cry from the usual oat and chocolate cookies I usually make, but the salty taste to them are a welcomed changed.

Gwyneth Paltrow’s Almond Butter Cookies

1 1/2 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 cup almond butter (I ended up using half almond butter and half peanut butter)

1 cup maple syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Course sea salt to sprinkle over the top


Preheat the oven to 180C and line two trays with baking paper.

In a large bowl mix together the flour, salt, and baking powder


In a separate bowl, whisk together the almond butter, maple syrup, and vanilla extract




Pour the wet mixture in to the dry mixture and stir until fully combined





Rolls the dough in to small balls and place on the baking tray



The cookies more or less hold their shape when placed in the oven, so with wet hands press down on the cookies to flatten. Sprinkle generously with sea salt  and bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes
