Gluten Free Almond Butter Kiss Cookies

Ualmond butter kiss cookies

These peanut butter blossoms have always been my personal favorite Christmas cookie. That being said, I was hesitant to even try to make it healthier. But then what would the point of my blog be? 🙂

I have to say, I’m surprisingly shocked at how good these cookies came out! I swapped peanut butter for almond butter and refined white sugar for low-glycemic coconut palm sugar. I also snuck in some flax. They are sweet, nutty and chewy just like the original.

Oh, and the Hershey Kiss in the middle looks like a Hershey Kiss because it is one. 😉
