Honey Almond Cookies

One of my favourite cookies are Italian almond or Amaretti cookies. Almond is my favourite flavour and smell in the world (yes I’m taking it that far) so it was time I made my own recipe. Here is my simple recipe for Honey Almond Cookies.

I adapted a classic recipe and swapped white sugar for a more nutritious sweetener, honey.  These cookies are soft and chewy on the inside and bursting with the delicious almond flavour. The best part is they are made with almond flour, making them gluten-free and grain-free.

You will be shocked how easy it is to make a pretty little cookies. You may want to bookmark this recipe for Christmas time 🙂

Nevertheless, Kraft Dinner isn’t something I make often. With a food philosophy rooted in holistic nutrition, I tend to feed my body with ingredients that will allow it to thrive. Continue reading
