C is for Cookie… August 25, 2009

…that’s good enough for me! 🙂

I LOVE sweets. But, between the sugar and fat in most desserts, I don’t have them very often (pre-diabetic with high cholesterol here). That doesn’t stop me from really craving them once in a while. And when that happens I have a couple of recipes I have come up with, that are not too bad for me. Here is one of them for some delicious flour-less, vegan cookies.

Almond (or Peanut) Vegan Cookies

1 1/2 cups organic sugar

2 cups almond butter (or peanut butter if you prefer)

2 Tbsp ground flax

6 Tbsp water

1 cup oatmeal (optional)

Makes about 30 cookies

 

Mix everything in a medium size bowl. Place walnut-size dough balls on a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper, about 2in apart. Flatten them with a fork before baking them in a 350ºF pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes.
