Grainless Nut Butter Cup Cookies

So one of the good things about winter in Canada is I tend to hibernate inside and get lots of new recipes done! This weekend is dreary and cold, so I’ll be hanging out in my kitchen all weekend long. These grainless Nut Butter Cup Cookies  are a must try! I adapted the recipe from @lilsipper sunbutter cookies and couldn’t be happier with the turn out. They only take a few minutes to prepare and are gluten free, dairy free, paleo, vegan and refined sugar free (option)!
