There are two-star ingredients in this recipe – Oatmeal and Almond Flour. Few tips before you start:
- You can make them sugar-free too by using a sugar substitute.
- I used one egg in this recipe but you can add an egg substitute by stirring 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed meal together with 3 tablespoons of water; let sit for 5 minutes to gel
- Instead of oil, you can use butter
- 3 cups oatmeal
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1 cup oil
- 1 egg or egg substitute
- 1 Tablespoon Flax seeds (optional)
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup any crushed nuts (I used cashew)
- 1/2 TSP baking soda
- 1/2 TSP baking powder
- pinch of salt
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
- Beat egg, sugar, and oil till smooth for about 3/4 minutes
- Add the Oatmeal, Almond flour, Crushed Cashews, Flax Seeds, Soda, Baking powder and Salt to the wet mixture
- Mix it well
- Line a cookie baking sheet with parchment paper
- With a cookie scoop or spoon, portion the dough by 2 tablespoonfuls and roll into balls (each ball will be about 2 inches in diameter). Arrange on the baking sheet, leaving 2 inches between each. With your fingers, lightly flatten the tops of the cookies. Sprinkle with salt, if using.
- Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the edges are just beginning to brown.
