Hello my almond butter loving friends. If you're new to HEAB, you may like to subscribe to my RSS feed or receive my posts via email. Thanks for reading!

This post has two purposes:

1) To share a delicious sugar-free recipe with you.

2) To raise money for Ovarian Cancer Research. Kelly Ripa, Electrolux, and Foodbuzz are all working together to raise money for the cause. On Kelly Confidential, you can select a perfect tea party outfit for Kelly’s Tea Party for a Cause. When you do, Electrolux will donate $1 to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. Foodbuzz and Electrolux are also partnering to host a Top 9 Tea Party Takeover on Friday, March 25th. In a Top 9 Takeover, Foodbuzz asks all Featured Publishers to construct a post around a theme and then, for one day only, all Top 9 posts reflect that theme. For this Electrolux Tea Party Top 9 Takeover, Foodbuzz has asked all Featured Publishers to create the perfect tea party recipe, and Foodbuzz will donate $50 to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund for every tea party recipe created.

I present to you HEAB’s Scookies

What the heck is a scookie you ask? Well, it’s what happens when you start out making scones and end up with something that resembles a cookie.

Recipe adapted from Elana Amsterdam’s recipe for chocolate chip scones in The Gluten Free Almond Flour Cookbook

Enjoy! I loved these. The original recipe called for 1/4 cup of agave nectar, but I used coconut butter instead to add more coconut flavor and a touch of sweetness. Perfect for me, but if you need a little more sweet love and want to keep the recipe sugar free, simply add a packet or two of powdered stevia.
I wish I could have all of you over for tea and scookies! :)
