DEFEND YOURSELF
FROM THE INSIDE OUT!

Almond Joy Cookies


 
Happy Mother's Day Weekend!

In the wise words of the Bee Gees... Whether you're a brother or whether you're a mother, you're staying at home! (Well, maybe that wasn't EXACTLY what they said....)

Yup, Mother's day and no brunch sitting on the patio overlooking the ocean... no picnic at the beach or park, no dinner out. Oh well. There are STILL ways to enjoy ourselves. We can still take a nice walk, enjoy the sunshine, smell the flowers through our masks... We can zoom with those we love.... We can eat HEALTHY COOKIES!

Yes, maybe you want to sweeten up your weekend with some cookies for your mom, yourself or whoever you want to share with.
These cookies are not going to throw you off of your healthy journey.

Are they immunity building? Well, maybe not so much, but they aren't immunity ruining, so that counts for something!

I hope you enjoy them, and Happy Mother's Day weekend!!

 

Almond Joy Cookies

Makes 15 Cookies
PREP TIME: 15 minutes (+ 30 minutes to chill)
COOK TIME: 10 minutes

Ingredients
•    1 1/4 cups almond meal
•    1/4 cup stevia-sweetened dark chocolate chips, (Lily's is the brand that I use)*
•    1/2 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
•    1/2 tsp baking powder
•    1/4 tsp sea salt 
•    1/3 cup coconut sugar 
•    1 large egg
•    3 Tbsp coconut oil (melted)
•    1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Directions
1.    In a large mixing bowl, stir together almond meal, dark chocolate chips, coconut, baking powder, salt and coconut sugar.
2.    In a separate bowl, beat egg until uniform in color and doubled in volume.
3.    Whisk in the coconut oil and vanilla, then add to dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
4.    Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes or even overnight.
5.    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
6.    Shape dough into 1-inch balls, place on baking sheet with 1-1/2 inch space in between each. Press down slightly to flatten a bit.
7.    Bake until edges begin to brown, 7-10 minutes.
8.    Remove from oven and let cool before serving.

*You could also use a stevia-sweetened chocolate bar, chopped up, if you don't want to buy the whole bag of chocolate chips - they can be expensive. It's the equivalent of about 1 bar of Lily's Stevia-sweetened dark chocolate bar.




 

Almonds are high in vitamin E that acts as an antioxidant in your body and helps immune system function. Almonds also contain iron and protein that are essential for your immune system.

Cheers.
