Grain-Free Almond Butter Cookies

Goodness gracious, it has been far too long since I've written here. In the past six months, we've moved to a new house, travelled across the country twice, said goodbye to a few dear friends and family members, welcomed new beautiful friends into our lives, and overall just grew emotionally and spiritually as a family of three. My little Hazel is turning two(!) in less than a month and I am constantly in awe of how she grows and changes daily. Life is magical.  I've been meaning to share this incredibly simple and tasty treat with you all for awhile now. These almond butter cookies whip up in literally less than five minutes and they are completely grain-free and refined sugar free, as well. They're a perfect snack for a toddle and an especially lovely snack with a cup of tea while said toddler naps. Do let me know if you make them, and next time I do, I just may add some dark chocolate shavings to them.
