These waffle iron cookies are delightfully different and easy to top with just about any festive topping you like!

Made with a hefty dose of almond butter, these cookies are best served either warmed or at room temp. (They tend to get a little hard in the fridge, even though that is where you should store them). But warm them up again, and they are delicious!

These would be great on any holiday dessert table and I can definitely see these being amazing with some clean, chocolate fondue or served with vanilla ice cream! Oh my, I’m drooling…


Sounds odd, I know. But just like waffles, a waffle iron can “bake” cookies too! The trick is to get the batter just right. And once you do, you get perfect cookies every single time! These are great for topping with whatever toppings you like best and would be great with a light coating of icing or even powdered sugar! (I would grind some Sucanat or coconut sugar in a spice grinder if you have one). Other topping ideas include other nut butter, jams, fruit salsas, or even peanut butter fruit dip.


If you’ve never had a spice cookie, you’re missing out! These types of holiday spice blends just seem to make the entire holiday season in the flavor department. Holiday spice = Christmas in my book!
