Friends, I’m off to the spa for two glorious days! And since I’ll be spending most of Monday morning at a private baking lesson with Ste. Anne’s Pastry Chef Khushroo Khambata, I thought it was only polite to share his recipe for Almond Cookies. These addictive treats are easy to make, chewy and flavourful – as well as being gluten and sugar free (win-win-win!). I’m very much looking forward to my mini vacation!
2 1/2 cups Almond flour – 1 cup Raisins – 1 cup Walnuts – 1 cup Unsweetened coconut – 1 cup Chocolate chips – 1 cup Pecan chopped – 1 cup Currants – 1/2 cup Melted butter – 2 cups Honey – 3 Eggs – 2 tsp Baking soda – 1/3 tsp Salt – 4 tsp Almond extract – 1 pinch Cinnamon – 1 pinch Clove
Preheat oven to 300ºF. Mix together the melted butter and honey. Mix in one egg at a time until combined. In a separate bowl, combine the almond flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and cloves. Gradually combine the wet and dry ingredients together. Stir in raisins, walnuts, coconut, chocolate chips, pecans and currants. Drop by teaspoon onto parchment lined baking tray, slightly flattening cookies with fork. Baking for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.

Good to know!
That looks so good! I wonder what I can replace almonds with…
I’m sure regular flour would work if you don’t have gluten intolerance!
Yum! Perfect for tea parties im sure!
