Nut Butter Drops

We make lots of drops around here. They are perfectly sized for snacks, freeze great, and travel well plus the kids love them. I have made these with almond butter, cashew butter, peanut butter and sunflower butter.

Nut Butter Drops
¼ cup butter 
¾ cup rapadura sugar or brown sugar
½ cup nut butter
2 eggs 
1 tsp vanilla
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
½ cup all purpose flour  
¾ cup whole wheat flour 
2 tsp baking powder  
2 cups rolled oats

Optional Additions
½ cup chocolate chips
½ cup coconut flakes
½ cup dried fruit

Preheat oven 375°. In a large mixing bowl cream butter and sugar with a stand or hand mixer. Add nut butter mix until well blended. Beat in eggs one at a time then add the vanilla and applesauce. Mix together the flours and baking powder in a separate bowl and then slowly add to the butter mixture. Stir in oats and any desired additions. Scoop tablespoon size drops onto baking sheet or stone. Bake at 375° for 10-12 min. until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack, serve slightly warm, store in an airtight container for 3-5 days, or freeze for later use.
