  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup almond meal/flour

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine all wet ingredients together then add the dry ingredients and combine thoroughly.
  • Scoop batter to whatever size cookie you’d like and flatten out to the desired thickness since these do not spread on their own.
  • Bake approximately 10-15 minutes, according to thickness.
  • Remove from baking sheet 2 minutes after cooling and transfer to cooling rack.

Consumption

  • These are wonderful chilled; so you can store in an airtight bag in the refrigerator and grab a snack when you need one.
  • These can also be frozen on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Once frozen, transfer to freezer bag and thaw before eating.
