One of the great things about coffee is it can be a sweet treat without any sugar. That's fantastic for those of us who need to stay away from sweets, but sometimes a person feels like a cookie, too. Here's a fun recipe for sugar-free, dairy-free, flour-free cookies to enjoy guilt-free with your coffee.
Vanilla Latte Almond Crescent Cookies (sugar-free)
Note: These are a nutty, lightly/naturally sweet cookie, with an almost biscuit quality. If you want a sweet cookie, you can add a tsp of sugar/sweetener, or more, to your taste.
Total Time : 1 1/2 hours
Active Time: 10 mins
Chill Time: 1 hour
Bake Time: 20 mins
Ingredients: 1 C almond flour
1/8 C (2 T) almond butter
1/3 C protein powder ( you can also cut this out and increase the almond flour by 1/3 C)
2 T coconut oil (reduce to 1 1/2 T if only using almond flour, because almond flour is oilier than protein powders)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
Steps: 1. Blend all ingredients together in a bowl until it forms a stiff dough. Put it in the fridge to chill for 1 hour.
2. Turn on oven to 300 F / 150 C
3. Cut chilled dough with a spoon and form into crescent shapes. Place on non-stick baking pan, backing paper, or lightly greased baking pan.
4. Place shaped cookies into heated oven and bake for 20 minutes. (cookies are done when surface is cracked and golden, firm but a bit of give/bounce in the middle when pressed, not squishy)
5. Allow cookies to cool and enjoy warm or room temp or chilled! Goes great with a cup of coffee. :)
