No eggs, dairy or gluten. I made this recipe for my grandson who is allergic to eggs, dairy and gluten, but not nuts. Go figure.
- ½ cup chopped almonds
- ¼ cup ground flax seeds
- ¾ cup water
- ½ cup coconut oil
- 1 cup organic whole sugar
- ¼ teaspoon Himalayan salt
- ¾ teaspoon almond extract
- ½ cup coconut flour
- 1 ½ cups coconut flakes
Preheat oven to 375F. Toast almonds if desired on a cookie sheet for about 6-8 minutes.
Mix ground flax seed, (preferably fresh ground), with water and let stand for 4-5 minutes to thicken.
Mix coconut oil, sugar, salt, flax seed mixture and almond extract. Stir in coconut flour, coconut flakes and almonds, let batter rest for 4-5 minutes to allow it to thicken slightly.
Place spoon sized batter mounds about 1 inch apart on a greased cookie sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Place cookies on cooling rack and allow to cool completely. Make about 2 dozen cookies.
