Mama and Me Freezer Cookies

Mama and Me Freezer Cookies

A few months ago I began introducing Hermione to nut butters and nut milks. I have to admit the reasons were partially selfish. I use nuts so often that having Hermione enjoy them along with me has made cooking for the two of us much, much easier. She and I can now share green smoothies! Along with green smoothies Hermione has also been enjoying these Almond Butter Freezer Cookies. They are an easy way to get her the healthy fats and protein found in nuts, all in a form she can grasp in her tiny hands. The "Mama" version is a take on a dessert I enjoyed often while pregnant. I love to make a big batch of these and store then in the freezer so the are ready when either of us needs a little treat!
