Fab Fit Day: Maple Almond Butter Oat Cookies

This year I have grown to love Almond Butter. It's not as addicting as peanut butter and it's extremely healthy. I was in the baking mood, so I decided to cure my almond butter craving and whip up some healthy cookies! I love keeping them in the fridge for snacks, pre-workout fuel, and yogurt toppings. 
Ingredients: *3 Cups Oats (Can be replaced with 4 cups of quick oats), *1/4 C. Whole Wheat Flour or 1/4 C. Gluten Free All Purpose Flour, *1/2 C. Almond Butter, *1/2 Cup Light Maple Syrup, *1 Tsp Baking Soda, *1 Large Egg, *2 Tsp Vanilla Bean Paste. 
Recipe Makes 42 (tbsp sized) Cookies.
Cut in half for smaller batch. 
-Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 
-In a large mixing bowl, combine the egg, vanilla, syrup, baking soda and oats together. 
-Mix in the Almond Butter.
-I was afraid that the cookies would be too crumbly, so I mixed in some flour to hold them together better. 
If you like eating "no bake" cookie dough, omit the egg and baking soda! It's delicious. 
I didn't have chocolate chips in the house (that's a first) but if I did, I would have added them in! I recommend it! 
Add tbsp sized cookies onto a baking sheet. 
It was hard not to scoop out the almond butter and eat it out of the jar. The maple flavor is a nice touch!
Bake 6-8 minutes. 
Let the cookies cool a couple minutes before removing them from the sheet. 
Bake the second batch! Unless you cut the recipe in half.
