Happy Holidays!


  • 1/4 cup almond butter made with the NutraMilk
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup any plant-based milk made with the NutraMilk
  • 1 1/2 cup gluten-free flour or all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder

For the icing

  • 2 tbsp. vegan butter room temperature
  • 1 cup powdered sugar sifted
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tbsp. almond milk
  • red sprinkles to decorate

For almond butter

  • 2 cups (300g) almonds


  • Making almond butter
    • Place almond and salt in the NutraMilk container.
    • Press Butter cycle, set for 12-13 minutes.
    • Press Start.
    • Open the container lid.
    • If necessary, set for an additional 1-2 minutes for a creamier butter.
  • Pre-heat the oven to 360°F/ 180°C.
  • In a mixing bowl, add the almond butter, sugar, and rice milk. Use a hand mixer to combine the ingredients.
  • Add the flour and baking powder and mix again. The ingredients should come together. Use your hands to form a ball. You can use additional flour if it’s too sticky.
  • Put the ball of dough into a container or cover in plastic wrap and let it chill in the fridge for 1/2 hour.
  • Put the chilled dough onto a lightly floured parchment paper and roll it out.
  • Cut out the cookies and place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake them at 360°F/180°C for approximately 8 minutes or until the edges get slightly brown. Let them cool off completely.
  • For the icing, beat the butter using a handheld mixer. Add in the powdered sugar and mix until well combined. Add in the vanilla extract and 1 tablespoon of almond milk and continue mixing until smooth. Only add in the second tablespoon of almond milk if your icing is not pliable. Transfer half of the icing to a piping bag or plastic zip bag and cut a small piece of the corner to create a tip. Decorate cookies with icing and sprinkles. Place them in the fridge for 30 minutes so the icing hardens- Enjoy!
