Flourless Almond Cookies

I was pretty dubious when making these cookies, as they have no flour and I didn’t think they would bake properly. I was really pleased with the outcome, and they were a bit softer and chewier than your normal cookie but the taste was lovely. I added a decent pinch of rock salt which gave quite delicious salty bursts. Also, being free from gluten, dairy and low in refined sugar, you shouldn’t feel too bad about having 2 of these!

P1060379The other week my lovely friend gave me some of these Reeses Pieces Peanut Butter Chips as an early birthday present (how did she know I love peanut butter?) so I used them instead of chocolate chips.

P1060369Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Almond Butter (or make your own using 1 cup Almonds)
  • 1/3 cup Honey (or Maple Syrup)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Essence
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 cup Chocolate Chips
  1. If you are making your own almond butter, place Almonds in processor and blend until the release natural oils and become a consistency similar to peanut butter. This should take 1-2 minutes but may take longer
  2. Add Honey, Egg, Vanilla, Baking Soda and Salt to the Almond Butter and mix well until creamy
  3. Fold in chocolate chips. Place on tray in small balls of dough, the mixture should make about 18 depending on how big you  want them
  4. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden. They should be softer than your average cookie
  5. Try to let them cool on a wire rack before eating some with your afternoon coffee
