Coconut Almond Anise Kissed Cookies

Introduction

This is the best cookie I’ve ever eaten.  No kidding!

A healthy alternative to almond cookies normally made with white flour, butter, and eggs. These are made with healthy fats and no white flour. D-Lish! I PROMISE you won’t miss those dead ingredients.

Yes, these cookies are indulgent, but I eat them when I have an afternoon of lots of activity.  Or Not!  LOL.

Ingredients

  • 1 .5 Oat Flour
  • 3/4 c. Oats, coarsely ground (substitute Steel Cut)
  • 1/4 cup Quinoa flour
  • 1/2 c. ground almonds (almond flour)
  • 1/4 c. shredded coconut
  • ½ c. Coconut Oil (melted)
  • ½ c. Maple Syrup
  • 1/4 tsp. Anise oil (or 1 tsp Anise extract)
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ¾ Tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • Garnish: Pinenuts (optional)


Directions
:   Combine all ingredients together into a bowl and mix well. Drop by the teaspoonful onto a cookies sheet lined with parchment paper. Place a couple of pine nuts in the center of the cookie (optional). Bake for 12 -15 minutes or until golden. Cool on a wire rack. Don’t even think about storing them, they will go too fast, but they could be stored in the freezer if you want to make a big batch.

TIPS and Timesavers:

  • Grind a few cups of Oats, almonds, and Quinoa and make your own flour. You can do it way ahead of time and keep them handy for recipes.
  • Timesaver: Take out all your ingredients out beforehand
  • (Use gluten-free oat flour for gluten free cookies)
  • (No Vita-Mix? Try using a blender to grind oats or use a food processor or coffee grinder)
  • (Use almond or vanilla if anise is not available)

Substitutions: Dawn

  • Brown rice instead of quinoa
  • 1 teaspoon of  almond and vanilla flavoring (Frontier Brand)
  • Chocolate chips instead of pine nuts
