Almond & Honey-Butter Cookies

My friend (and healthy-cooking Jedi master), Erin, sent me this recipe and it’s a good one. I adapted this recipe from an EatingWell.com recipe (found here: http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/almond_honey_butter_cookies.html)

Ingredients

2 1/4 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup almonds, finely chopped with food processor (I bought sliced almonds to make it easier)

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

2/3 cup honey

1/3 cup coconut oil

3 tbsp unsalted butter at room temperature, divided

1 large egg

1 tsp vanilla extract

Process

1. Chop almonds in food processor (or blender) until finely ground (yields 1 1/4 cup chopped)

2. Combine almonds, whole wheat flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl; stir until combined. Beat honey, coconut oil, butter in a mixing bowl until well combined; add egg and vanilla and beat until well blended. Combine “wet” ingredients with “dry” ingredients thoroughly. Refrigerate for dough for 1 hour

3. Preheat over to 350 degrees; cover baking sheet with cooking spray or parchment paper

4. Roll dough into 1-inch balls, place two inches apart; flatten with finger; cook 13-15mins. Yields about 3 1/2 dozen

Optional 

Mix 1 tbsp butter with 1/4 cup honey until creamy; fill each cookie with approximately 1/4 tsp and garnish with shredded almonds

Final Product

Almond & Honey-Butter Cookies

These are my favorite (less) guilty cookie! Enjoy!
