These are some pretty healthy little cookies - keep in mind that they still have natural fats and sugars...but they are certainly full of some good nutritious oats, wheat germ, almonds and honey. A better option than any store bought cookie at least!!
Almond Oatmeal Cookies
1/2 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup ground almond flour
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup whole meal flour
1/4 cup almond butter 1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon bicarbonate soda
Preheat the oven to 170 Celsius. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Combine the all dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Over a low heat, soften the honey and almond butter in a small saucepan until the mixture just comes to the boil. Remove this from the heat and mix in the bicarb soda straight away. You will see it thicken and sort of bubble as you keep stirring. Next, pour this in to the oat mixture, mix through lightly. Fold through the beaten eggs.
Roll the mix into small balls, and place onto a baking tray - flatten a little. (I found my mix was quite sticky, I just had to wash my hands a few times...I suppose you could add a little more flour to the mix, but I didn't want to dry out the batter.) Bake for 15 minutes until golden brown and cool before eating.
I made little cookies and then one BIG one!
You can dip the bottoms into melted dark chocolate too if you like. This is not an overly sweet at all...but I like these to take to work for my mid morning tea, so don't want them too sugary or I get ups and downs all day!
