Almond Drop Cookies

This was a favorite recipe of mine back in the early 80’s. I had to upgrade the ingredients because back then, eating “healthy” was whole wheat and honey. LOL! The updated ingredients are light,  tasty and nutritious. The flax adds a bit of crunch and fiber to the cookies. Enjoy them for a snack or a tasty desert bite. Bon Appétit!

In a large bowl add the following ingredients:

2 cups almond flower

½ cup ground almonds

½ cup flax seeds

4 Tbsp. Xylitol or sweetener of your choice

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

Stir gently.

In a smaller bowl add the following and whisk gently:

2 eggs

½ c melted coconut oil

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 tsp. almond extract

Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix thoroughly. The dough will feel and look “wet”, but should stick together in a ball.

Drop by teaspoon unto a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Bake at 375 for 8 -10 minutes, or until the bottoms are slightly brown. Enjoy!
