In celebration of Chinese New Year, which we have celebrated every year since the adoption of my two youngest daughters, I made a grain free almond cookie! Whether you celebrate this holiday or not, this is a delicious Chinese Almond Cookie! Gung Hay Fat Choy!
Chinese Almond Cookies
1 1/2 Cups of Almond Flour
1/4 Cup of Honey
1/4 Teaspoon of Sea Salt
1/4 Teaspoon of Baking Soda
1/4 Teaspoon of Almond Extract
12 Whole Almonds for the Top of the Cookies (I used sprouted almonds)
Directions: Preheat your oven to 350º degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. In a bowl with an electric hand-held mixer, beat the egg and honey. Add the almond flour, sea salt, baking soda and almond extract. Beat until fully incorporated for about one minute. With a tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop the cookie dough onto the prepared cookie sheet about 1 1/2 inches apart. Place one almond on top of each cookie, in the center, and press down gently. Bake in your preheated oven for ten minutes, or until the cookies are golden brown. Cool on the cookie sheet.
Makes one dozen cookies. Low FodMap 1 cookie.
