Almond Cookies

1 cup almond meal or flour
1/3 cup almond butter
1/4 cup unsweetened orange juice
2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
1/4 cup + 3 tablespoons Date Honey
2 tablespoons sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, mix almond meal, almond butter, orange juice, and flaxseed meal. Lightly rub an 11 x 17-inch baking sheet with olive oil. Place dough on baking sheet and flatten with your hands to about 1/8-inch thickness. Use a circle cookie cutter about the size of a 1/3 cup measuring scoop to cut out cookies (or use the measuring cup itself). Spread about 1/2 tablespoon Date Honey on each cookie, and top with 3-4 sliced almonds. Bake 10 minutes. Remove from oven, and transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool.

Yield: 14 servings (serving size: 1 cookie)

Recipe Notes

  • Use unsweetened applesauce as a topping instead of Date Honey.
  • Omit the toppings, and crumble baked cookie over fresh fruit.
