These sweet little cookies are more healthy than decadent, but they make a sweet treat for kids and travel. In this recipe, the pitta-increasing almonds are balanced with maple syrup and cardamom. Enjoy in moderation.
- 1 cup finely grounded raw almonds
- ¼ cup maple syrup (grade b)
- ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
- 2 teaspoons water
Preheat the oven to 300F. Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor or blender. Blend for 2-3 minutes, until the batter becomes smooth. Place parchment paper or oil on your baking sheet (olive, coconut or ghee work well). Spoon out the mixture in half-teaspoon balls, leaving a little space for them to spread. Bake for 20-30 minutes, until golden brown.
Makes about 15 small cookies.
