The weather in Bristol has been fantastic, so I’m trying to spend as much time outside as possible. It also means that I need more snacks for the increased activity and because I’m usually pretty hungry in general. I initially tried to make almond butter, which ended up as almond flour. So now I’m making almond flour cookies, here is what you’ll need:
- 1 1/2 cups almond flour
- 1/4 cup baking soda
- Pinch of salt
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 1 teaspoon almond essence
Combine the almond flour, baking soda, and salt. If you are interested in making your own almond flour for the recipe, place once cup of raw almonds in a food processor and pulse until it becomes flour like.
Next, add the coconut oil, honey, and almond essence. Mix together very well. It will be crumbly, but you can add a bit more coconut oil if it’s too dry.
Because of the consistency, you’ll have to shape the cookies by hand. Make into small balls and place them evenly apart on the baking sheet.
Heat your oven to 180 C / 350 F and bake for 8 – 10 minutes.
And there you have it, Almond Flour Cookies! These are super easy to make and taste delicious!
Note, these probably aren’t low calorie, but completely natural, so a perfect snack to keep you fueled for summer activities. I’ll try making my own almond butter another time, but for now, these cookies will do just fine! Thanks for reading and Happy Eating!
