Home » Recipe of the Week: Vanilla Almond Cookies
Gooey, chewy, melt-in-your-mouth delicious almond cookies coming your way!
These are one of my go-to’s on a Saturday morning when I get some alone time in the kitchen whilst I sip on a hot cuppa. Not because I can only have them on Saturdays (no pseudo food rules here!) but because they are always a huge hit when friends and family visit (socially distancing of course).
Always remembering that health is not merely physical rather we must also consider mental health. This means having SATISFYING meals is equally important to having your greens.
Our TOP TIP: Instead of labelling food as ‘good’ or ‘bad’ just call it for what it is – a cookie. Your body already knows what it wants more or less of. You can begin to tap into it’s inner wisdom by checking in with how you physically feel after eating certain foods. Let THAT be your guide. Not external factors such as influencers or your next door neighbour who calls herself a nutrition guru…
Back to the recipe – literally as easy as 1,2,3… a,b,c…
Here is how you make them:
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
Serves: 10-12 cookies
*Note: the picture was taken when I ran out of chocolate chips… (oops! I am human). They were still so tasty but not quite the same! The dark chocolate makes for the perfect juxtaposition of the sweet almond flavour.
CAUTION: risk of burning your mouth because you’ll want to eat them soon after they come out of the oven! Ha.
We cannot wait to see you ace them.
