Almond Cookies (no wheat, dairy or sugar!)

It’s not too often that you find a cookie recipe that is tasty, nutritious, chewy and delicious! Not to mention, this recipe does not include any wheat, dairy or sugar, it’s SO easy to make!!  They don’t have a lot of flavor and are not too sweet but I LOVE the texture & flavor… kind of reminds me of shortbread (without all the FAT!)  Happy eating 😉

Ingredients:
2 cups almond meal flour (just ground up almonds)
1/2 cup almond butter
5 tbsp agave
1 tsp almond extract
1 tsp vanilla extract AND 1 tsp almond extract
2 Tb slivered almonds/raw almonds (garnish)

Directions:
– Preheat oven to 350 degrees
– Place all ingredients (except slivered almonds/raw almonds) into food processor.

– Process thoroughly, stopping occasionally to scrape sides of bowl.
– Transfer to mixing bowl and knead until moist.

– Place onto foil baking pan and press a few almond slivers or raw almonds into the thumb print each cookie.
– Bake 12 minutes.
