These Almond flour Cookies make the perfect afternoon indulgence during winter. Just what you need with a hot cup of your tea / coffee. I love cookies. My afternoon tea is always accompanied by cookies. But i prefer to bake them at home. Because most store bought cookies have processed flours. Trust me, cookies are the easiest to make. It is not a rocket science.

I was surprised to learn that cookies originated as test for cakes. A small amount of cake batter that was baked to test the oven temperature emerged as cookies. 😊 I prefer cookies to biscuits. So, what is the difference? There is a general mix-up between Biscuits and Cookies. I have explained the difference in my earlier post on Raisin and Chocolate chip cookies. 

There is a general belief that Almonds are high in fat. But they say, despite that, almonds promote weight loss and are as close to perfect as a food can get.

Few days back I had posted a recipe for homemade Almond butter. And I had also promised to post few recipes using that. Here you have these cookies that use homemade healthy almond butter as promised. To reduce the amount of sugar, I have used bananas in this recipe. They also contribute softness for these cookies. I have also used Chocolate chips which add to the sweetness and softness. These cookies are crisp on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. These Almond Flour cookies are healthy for all ages. They make a healthy snack for kids with a cup of Nut milk and for elders with hot cup of evening tea.

Though I have added Chocolate chips, you can skip it if you do not like them and instead can add raisins, walnuts, hazelnuts, peanuts, etc. The options are plenty.

Try these healthy, soft and chewy, easy to make and delicious cookies. Perfect for kids’ snack box too.
