  1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C). Spread the almonds onto a baking sheet, and toast until the nuts start to turn golden brown and become fragrant, about 45 minutes. Watch the nuts carefully as they bake, they burn quickly. Once toasted, set the nuts aside to cool to room temperature. Finely grind the almonds in a food processor.
  2. Raise oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Oil a baking sheet with vegetable oil.
  3. In a bowl, mix together the ground almonds, oat flour, maple syrup, and almond extract. Form the mixture into 6 balls, then flatten the balls into cookies about 1/4 inch thick. Place cookies onto the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake until crisp and brown around the edges, 12 to 15 minutes; watch them carefully because they burn easily. Remove the cookies carefully, and allow to cool.

I'd say it seems like it's vegan approved! way to go..a bit of protein doesn't hurt either!roasting nuts is the only way to truly enjoy them!good job!(from a VEGAN!)

the almond extract gave the cookies a bitter taste. obviously, it is a very nutty cookie recipe; my recommendation would be to leave out the almond extract or tone it down with some honey.

For being gluten free, these are pretty good. I ground rolled oats into flour, and had almond flour on hand. I used orange extract instead of almond. They turned out very yummy. A different text...

response to kfoste8. Please check your almond extract. Could be it has gone rancid. Was a little worried myself when I made this recipe because I had purchased the raw almonds a few weeks a...

These have become a staple at our house. We've recently cut dairy out of our diet, and these are the 1st cookies that I've found that are dairy-free and very good. Also very easy to make! I must...

I was wondering, can I bake the almonds the day before I'm going to make the cookies? I'm going to have a massive time crunch and will probably need to do this.

We all liked these cookies, kids included. As I already use almond flour in baking and had it ready to go, I lightly toasted a cup of it first rather than toast and grind extra almonds. I reduce...

I love the simplicity of this recipe. It was a bit bland at first, so I made a few modifications. 1. I toasted the oats then ground them into flour as well as the almonds. I added a dash each of...
