Easy CHINESE ALMOND COOKIES (vegan, GF, refined sugar free) So its Chinese New …

Easy CHINESE ALMOND COOKIES (vegan, GF, refined sugar free) 🇨🇳✨ So its Chinese New Year this week and I thought it would be a fitting time to share this fun almond cookie recipe with you guys! ☺️ These cookies were one of my childhood favourites, super moreish & nutty! ⁣

Traditionally, these cookies have egg, butter and gluten, but I’ve made my own version using pantry staples from thesourcewestendbrisbane that many more of you can enjoy and which i believe still captures the taste & essence of the original cookie 🤩 Bonus, it’s high in protein too, so it will help keep you satiated for longer too ✌🏼 i⁣

Here is the recipe! ➡️⁣

CHINESE ALMOND COOKIES (vegan, GF, refined sugar free) i⁣

✅1/4 teaspoon salt⁣

WET:⁣
✅1/4 cup pure maple syrup⁣
✅1/4 coconut oil, melted ⁣
*Optional: 1 tsp almond essence ⁣

✅Almonds for decoration⁣

METHOD:⁣
1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees C/ 320 degrees F, fanforced. Line a cookie tray with non-stick paper.⁣
2. In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients until mixed⁣
3. Add in the wet ingredients and mix until a cookie dough forms⁣
4. form the dough into balls and press down into thick cookie shapes. Press an almond into the top of each cookie⁣
5. Bake the cookie for 10-12 mins until the top is golden . Remove from the oven and allow to cool fully. The cookie will become a bit firmer once it has cooled down.⁣
