Serve these delightful nibbles with a fresh cup of organic coffee or tea when guests come to visit! Made of almonds and unsweetened coconut, and sweetened with Stevia & raw honey, these provide a healthy alternative to processed cookies!
Almond Meal Cookies
3/4 almonds, pulsed into a meal
1/4 cup dried unsweetened coconut, pulsed
1/4 tsp. Stevia extract OR 8 packets of Truvia
1/4th tsp. sea salt
1/4th tsp. non-aluminum baking soda
2 TBSP. raw honey
2 TBSP. coconut oil or butter (or any desired oil)
Mix almond and coconut meal in a large bowl. Stir in stevia, sea salt and baking soda until thoroughly incorporated.
In a smaller bowl, create a double boiler over a small saucepan of simmering water on the stove and melt the honey and butter/oil together.
Stir the honey and oil into the flour mixture until a dough forms. With tablespoon balls of dough, flatten down into desired cookie shapes on a parchment sheet lined baking sheet (these will not spread). Bake at 300 degrees F until slightly brown (about 8-12 minutes).
Be careful to not let them burn. Let them cool before taking them off the parchment paper (they will harden as they cool).
Store in the refrigerator for crispy, delicious healthy cookies!
Makes about 16 cookies.
