Sometimes you just need a quick recipe to satisfy a sweet tooth…without the sugar! These cookies will do the trick and they only takes a few minutes to whip up!
- 1-1/4 cups blanched almond flour (it has to be the blanched flour.)
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 TBSP coconut oil, melted
- 4 TBSP maple syrup
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup toasted slivered almonds (optional)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Mix flour, soda and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix coconut oil, syrup and vanilla. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Add almonds. Mix well.
Scoop a teaspoon of dough onto cookie sheet. Flatten lightly. They will not spread on their own.
Bake in oven for 8 minutes.
**To make the Chocolate Cookies: add 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder to your dry ingredients; omit almonds. Everything else remains the same.
