The type of almond butter you use will change the texture of the cookie. I have used both raw and roasted almond butter and each one had a slightly different texture but both are good. I really prefer fresh turmeric in this recipe because the flavor is so much better. It can be hard to come by sometimes but most health foods carry it. If you happen to try turmeric powder, please let me know how it turns out.
