Vegan almond cookies. Gluten free, vegan cookies with almond flour, banana and cinnamon that fit in a healthy lifestyle.
Almond flour is one of my favorite flours to bake with. Not only because I love to work with it, but also because it is so tasty! The only disadvantage of almond flour is that it is quite expensive compared to other gluten free flours. Luckily they often have sale at Holland & Barret. 2 weeks ago they had a 50% sale on a lot of different articles and that makes it a lot more interesting to buy all these healthy products. It is one of my favorite stores as well, because I feel like a child in a candy store there.
That many kinds of flour, seeds, nuts and a lot of other different things. I always have to make sure I don’t buy the entire store, definitely when it is sale. But I did quite a good job 2 weeks ago. Banana flour and almond flour are a bit more expensive flours so I took them with 50% off. I started with the almond flour right away, because what else could you do on a rainy Saturday afternoon? I made these plant based, gluten free cookies with it.
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Baking time: 15 minutes (+15 minutes waiting time)
Amount: 10-15 cookies (depending on the size)
- Food processor
- Baking paper
- Baking tray
- 50 grams coconut oil
- 1/2 banana
- 100 grams almond flour
- 150 grams gluten free oatmeal
- 5 grams cinnamon
- 5 grams baking soda
- 25 grams almond butter
- 25 grams seedless dates
- 30 grams almonds + 10-15 almonds
How to make it?
Preheat the oven on 180 degrees Celsius (356 Fahrenheit). Put the coconut oil in a small pan and melt slowly on low heat fire.
In the meantime put all the other ingredients, except the almonds in the food processor. Mix in a few minutes into a sticky dough.
Chop the almonds really small and stir through the dough. Make balls from the dough with your hands and squeeze a bit an the baking tray (on a piece of baking paper). Don’t make the cookies too big, it will take much longer to get well. As decoration you can put an almond on top of the cookies. Bake them for 15 minutes in a preheated oven. Pay attention that the baking time may differ per oven.
Let the cookies cool down for at least 15 minutes, that way they become crispy. Lovely with some nut butter for breakfast, or just as a healthy snack!
