List #4: Almond Butter Cookies
Recipes are considered lists, right? As a kindergarten teacher, I used recipes as an introduction to procedural writing. Procedural writing involves lists.
Here is a recipe that Levi LOVES. I wonder if I'm lying to Levi when I say they're cookies--the cookies are barely sweet enough to be considered cookies. Not very sweet but definitely yummy and healthier than most sweet snacks...and a cinch to make. If Trader Joe's or Whole Foods is close by, chances are that you have most of those ingredients in your kitchen already.
1 c. raw crunchy almond butter
1/2 cup chia bran or flax meal (if in a pinch, I'd use flour)
4 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons cinnamon
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix all the ingredients together (I suggest mixing the dry ingredients together first before adding the wet ingredients). Roll dough into 1 inch balls and they're perfect for little hands! Press gently onto baking tray. Bake for 8 minutes. Watch the inaugural address as the cookies cool.
