Coconut-Almond Shortbread- Vegan

Coconut Almond Shortbread

Coconut Almond Shortbread

I absolutely love these cookies. Shortbread cookies are a favorite of mine. I have baked a lot of variations of shortbread cookies, and these are one of the best.

This recipe came about because I needed a cookie for someone who doesn’t eat dairy or eggs. I decided to make a shortbread type cookie, since they normally don’t have eggs in them.  I just needed a good substitute for the butter. Rather than using butter, I used a combination of almond butter and coconut oil.


They came out just right, with the crumbly, dry texture of a traditional shortbread and the added flavor of the almond butter, coconut and cinnamon. I could see adding some finely chopped almonds the next time I make them.
