Healthy Almond Chia Cookies

This is my own recipe of the healthiest and tastiest cookies ever. Just look at ingredients! You are welcome! Enjoy!

- I like these cookies a lot as it is. They are reasonably sweet to satisfy sweetness craving. Cut sugar in half if you want them lightly sweet. Also you can omit sugar completely and drop a little of your favorite fruit preserves into indentation before baking.

- Refer to a pictures below to see what brands for ingredients I used.

- Freshly baked, these cookies crispy on edges and tenderly moist inside. If they happen to live longer than one day, they will become softer and slightly chewy, with a wonderful crunch from chia seeds still there.

Healthy Almond Chia Cookies

For about 32 cookies :
  • 4 cups almond flour
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup raw cane sugar
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp ground flax seeds + 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • vanilla
  • almond extract (optional)

- Preheat oven to 350F.

- In a small bowl mix ground flax seeds with a 1/2 cup of water. Set aside.

- In a large mixing bowl combine together almond flour, chia seeds, sugar, baking powder and salt.

- Add maple syrup, flax seeds with water, vanilla and almond extract. Mix well.

- On a baking sheet with parchment paper, scoop out cookie dough. I used 1.5 inch cookie scoop. Flatten them out a bit or make indentation and bake for about 30 minutes or until edges are golden brown.

- Remove from oven and let them cool completely before transferring from a baking sheet.

- Enjoy!
