Ingredient Notes and Health Benefits:

Almond Flour: High in fiber and gluten free, this flour is the perfect substitute for wheat flour in baking.

Egg: Helps hold the cookies together and also adds a small amount of protein.

Brown Sugar: Less processed compared to white sugar, this is the perfect sweetener.

Peanut Butter: A great source of healthy fats and of course makes this recipe what it is! Be sure to use natural peanut butter. I love Justin’s peanut butter.
