Foodie Friday: Maple Almond Butter + Macadamia Nut Cookies {Gluten Free, Vegan}


Maple Almond Butter Macadamia Nut Cookies {Gluten Free, Vegan} @FitFoodieMama

Welcome back to our weekly Foodie Friday link up! I’m linking up with Emily from Whatever Floats Your Oats, Esther from Chocolate Runner Girl, Farrah from Fairyburger and Cassandra from Powered by BLING to create awesome healthy recipes each week!  Also, make sure you hop around to check out all the amazing recipes in this link up and feel free to add your recipes as well! 

As you’re reading this I am making my way down to Alexandria, VA for a family wedding.  Not only am I excited about this because it means a weekend away sans children (HOORAY) but it also means that I get to meet Sue from This Mama Runs for Cupcakes for the first time in the flesh! 

If you haven’t familiarized yourself with Sue’s blog yet then you need to do so! She always all sorts of awesome information about races, running, running tips, and running gear along with occasional mouth watering (healthy) desserts! I cannot wait to meet up with her and naturally, we plan on going for a sunrise run! She’s promised to give me a running tour of D.C. and I CANNOT WAIT! Yes, I abused the exclamation point in that paragraph but it’s because I’m FREAKING EXCITED! 

Speaking of desserts and excitement, today’s Foodie Friday theme is COOKIES and I’ve whipped up these super simple and scrumptious Maple Almond Butter Macadamia Nut Cookies.  Made with just a few ingredients, including Skoop B Strong protein powder, they’re perfect for breakfast, an afternoon snack and of course, dessert!
