If you’re hankering for a quick and healthy treat, put these paleo almond tea cookies in the oven right now. They are seriously delicious, quick, and they make a great energy-boosting snack (thanks to the coconut oil and maple syrup!). They are grain free, egg free, dairy free and refined sugar free. They won’t disappoint. I love them in the afternoons with a cup of coconut milk chai or after lunch for a sweet (but not too sweet) treat. They take about 5 minutes to mix up and 10 minutes to bake.
Paleo Almond Tea Cookies
(grain free, gluten free, egg free, refined sugar free)
- 2 cups blanched almond flour
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp cardamon
Optional: dark chocolate or carob chips (just mix in the batter)
Directions: Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Combine all ingredients. Roll into 2-inch balls and press down with fork tines. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet so they firm up. They’ll fall apart when warm. Enjoy!
These should yield around 12, but I always eat so much of the batter that I’m not sure exactly how many they make.
