Whether you’re baking for someone special or treating yourself with decadent sweets, these gluten-free carob cookies have your back. These are the gluten-free carob cookies that you will want to inhale. Made with almond flour, carob powder, and vanilla, the addition of almond butter really puts these cookies over the top. Chewy, not too sweet and have slightly crisp edges. They are easy to make and can be stored at room temperature for days, that is if they last that long. If you want to take these cookies to the next level, we highly recommend making these with homemade carob chips.
