When I think of summer, I don’t usually think of cookies. Warm, gooey, cookies (in my non-sweet tooth mind) are reserved for the fall and winter, not the hot summer months. So why am I posting a cookie recipe in July? It’s because these 3 ingredient lemon cookies taste like summer. All you need is some kind of nut butter (my favorite is almond butter), a lemon, and maple syrup (or honey). I sometimes add a pinch of salt to enhance the flavor, but that is totally optional.
These 3 ingredient lemon cookies are gluten free, dairy free, soy free, and have a lower carb count compared to most cookies.
