OATMEAL ALMOND COOKIES

Monday, June 22, 2009
Posted by ZOMT


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

 
Ingredients
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
2 eggs

Method
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!

Thanks for the comment and the add! Macarons are just amazing little treats, and they're definitely one of the most inconsistent things I've ever made. It's a love/hate relationship with these things!

Anywho, these cookies sound amazing. Oats, almonds, and honey - a winning combination.

Uh, this is probably a really stupid question, but where is the actual recipe? I only see a picture...

Uh, there's no such a link on my screen. Ctrl-F doesn't find it either.

Hmm.. Thanks for your help but there are no these words on the page :((( I put in your link - it doesn't work as well.. The text on the page starts like that "Roll the mix into small balls, and place onto a baking tray ..."

I have made these twice now and they're amazing! So scummy and healthy to boot!

The first time I followed the recipe exactemundo. Second time I got a bit wild and added vanilla paste, currants and cinnamon (really wanted to add ground ginger for some warmth in the Aussie winter, but had none on hand0.

Thanks so much!

Zoe Tattersall said...

So glad you enjoyed them! Your second batch sounds delicious - I love cinnamon and currants together :)

I tried these last night. They are very good and I find coating good dark chocolate to the bottom of the cookies makes a HUGE difference!! Brilliant! I also drizzle some extra dark chocolate to the top of each cookie!! Yum!!!! What's great is that I don't feel guilty eating a bunch of these because they are so healthy!!! Thanks so much for sharing.
