Gluten-Free Almond Cookies

Our easy gluten-free almond cookies have it all: great flavour and texture, low in carbs and calories, gluten-free, refined sugar-free, vegan and paleo.

With just five ingredients, our almond cookies take all of five minutes to mix up, the dough needs no chilling and they bake in 12 minutes flat.

Once cooled, these almond cookies have a lovely chewy texture and wholesome substance.  Thanks to the ground almonds they feel more filling than many cookies and they’re also more nutritious (along with being low in calories and fat). But they still taste like real cookies.

One more thing, these cookies are gluten-free so a nice treat for those of you who are in a constant search of decent cookies free of gluten.

As well, they contain no refined sugar.

This recipe is just slightly adapted from the terrific recipe website The Kitchn.
