I must admit that I’m falling more and more in love with Almond Flour…., Especially baking with Almond Flour.  I realize that almond flour makes cakes, muffins, and cookies spongy and delicious. If you haven’t tried the ALMOND Flour Cakes, then you must try them – Ricotta Almond Gluten-free Cake

These are high in protein, contain no flour and also make a great guilt-free snack. The best part is – These Gluten-free Oatmeal Almond Flour Cookies taste amazing with black coffee.

There are two-star ingredients in this recipe – Oatmeal and Almond Flour. Few tips before you start:

  1. You can make them sugar-free too by using a sugar substitute.
  2. 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
  3. Instead of oil, you can use butter

INGREDIENTS:

  • 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

METHOD:

  • 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.

I’m scrappy, weird and goofy. I’m a snob when it comes to a LOT of things.., Mainly – coffee, wine and chocolates. I laugh loud and yell louder. I run fast, but walk slow. I love walking long walks with a hot mug of coffee held tight between my hands. I have lonely eyes and a kind heart. I forgive but rarely forget. I remember the silliest of things and forget important matters. I love to run, read, cook and entertain. I draw inspirations from anything and everything aesthetic. There are numerous people who have and still continue to enrich my life in many good ways. I will remain indebted to them – Always. My dad is my biggest fan when it comes to cooking. I could see his eyes light up every time I serve something. My mom’s agility and affectionate nature that reflects on her food is something I’m still trying to master. Travel fascinates me amongst other things. Leave me in Venice and I would get lost in its timeless beauty – The canals. The piazzas. The art. The espresso. Leave me in NYC and I would tirelessly walk the length and breadth of the city (after all, There is always something open 24 hours a day). Through this blog, I am hoping to bring in my passion and love for a few things – Cooking, Travel, Kids, Coffee, Clothes and in the interim learn more myself. Hope I am able to do justice to my PASSION.
