Healthy Almond Cookies – For a fresh start to 2021 :-)

 

After the holidays and with the start of the New Year, we look for something light to snack on. Ideally, even those cookies which we want to enjoy with a cup of tea should not be a calorie bomb. I did a little research and eventually managed to find a recipe for healthy cookies. I adapted some of the ingredients. Their juicy taste surprised me a lot! However, I have only been able to try one single piece, not that I can give up snacking so easily, but because my kids have eaten everything in a few minutes!

 

Ingredients:

 

100 g Spelt Flour

50 g (fine) Oat Flakes

1 Pinch of Salt

30 g dark Chocolate Flakes (optional)

30 g ground Almonds

40 g Coconut Oil

40 g Acacia Honey (or any other different type of honey)

2 tbsp. Plant-based Milk (for lactose-free cookies) or Cow Milk 

 

Method:

 

Mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl. While stirring continuously, melt coconut oil and honey. Add the liquid mixture to the prepared oatmeal mixture. Then gradually add the milk until a homogeneous mixture is formed. 

 

Shape the dough into a ball. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough to a thickness of about 0,5 cm. Using a cookie cutter, cut the dough into desired shapes. I used the oval-shaped cookie cutter. However, you can certainly use various cookie cutter shapes of your choice that you might find nicer and more practical.

 

Place the cookies onto a baking sheet lined with baking paper and bake them at 180 °C for about 12 minutes. 

 

These cookies are usually soft immediately after baking. However, after you have let your cookies cool completely on a wire rack, they will surely become super crispy!
