Almond Cookies

Today is already the second Sunday in Advent. It’s such a pity how fast the pre-Christmas time passes by. And at the same time you are so busy and stressed that you can hardly enjoy the holiday season. But no matter how busy life is, you should definitely take some time to bake these tasty and healthy almond cookies. 🙂

As I mentioned last week, I want to show you some ideas for healthy or at least healthier cookies this holiday season. According to the principle balance is the key, you can enjoy your Christmas time with a mix of the old classics and some new healthy cookies. And since we already had some chocolate hazelnut cookies last week, today I want to show you a really easy and quick cookie recipe.

quick and healthy almond cookieis

For this recipe you will need barely twenty minutes. You don’t have to chill the dough, cut it out or decorate the cookies. So there’s nearly no quicker and easier way to bake cookies than that. All you need are oats, ground almonds and egg white.You can also choose whether you want to use erythritol or stevia as sweetener. I know that some people don’t tolerate one or the other, but this recipe works with both alternatives. I also use a little bit of bitter almond flavor, which gives the cookies a great marzipan flavor.

I hope you like the recipe and try it out! As always, I look forward to your feedback in the comments or some pictures of your creations on Instagram. Have a nice day and see you at the next recipe. 🙂
