I like to draw a heart on them for special occasions. Every time I make these cookies, I have to smile because the ingredients are simple, without the typical eggs, oil, or wheat -- yet so yummy!

  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.

For making these cookies, I actually just put the almonds in a cold oven and turn on the oven to 350 degrees. When my oven has reached 350 they are roasted good enough for me. Fast and easy. The less you roast the almonds IMHO the more nutritious they stay. Once roasted slightly I would store them in the refrigerate so oils in the almonds do not turn rancid or use that day.


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!)


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 ago and didn't know that I should be storing them in the freezer until I roasted them because their natural oils could turn. My cookies turned our really good. Will make again with candy sprinkles.
