Almond Oat Cookies
Almond meal or ground almond adds a beautiful flavor to cookies and cakes. I discovered this while experimenting with cakes. Whatever quantity you have for flour, substitute half of it with ground almond. You'll be blown away by the end results!!
Makes about 20, 2 inch cookies.
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup canola oil
1 tbsp water
1/4 tsp salt
2tsp vanilla essence
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup oats (any kind)
2 cups ground almond
1tsp baking powder
Slivered almonds for decoration
Preheat the oven to 375 deg F. Get two baking trays ready.
Whisk the first 5 ingredients for a few minutes.
Add the flour, oats, ground almond and the baking powder.
Mix thoroughly and then roll them into balls, flatten and shape them in to 2 inch cookies on your palms and place them on the baking trays. If you are unable to shape into cookies, probably the batter is too dry. Add a bit more oil and try again.
Decorate with 2 slivered almonds per cookie.
Bake for 12-15 mins. Check the bottom of the cookies, if golden brown, time to remove them from the oven.
Enjoy while they last!!
Note : you can substitute the ground almond with ground hazelnut instead too! hen it will be called Hazelnut Oat Cookies :))
Have fun baking !

Hi Yasmin - i roast and grind almond myself. It tastes fresher that way.

And I do grind with skin- that is where most of the nutrition is :))

I pan roasted the almonds for 30mins on medium heat and let it cool. Can also be oven roasted at 350 deg F for about 15 mins until they are browned a little.

I am so excited to try out this recipe! I have been meaning to cook something for my little cousin who loves oatmeal so much and now, I finally have one! The reason why I am looking for a recipe to bake is because it is her birthday next month. I want to surprise her with her favorite food because I know how much she'll love it! I hope you get to post more recipes with oatmeal as the main ingredient because I know that my little cousin will be very grateful for it.
