The following is a guest post from Arman of The Big Man’s World.
I first came across Linda’s blog when a friend suggested I link up to her Wednesday link party, Gluten Free Wednesdays. I never started off with sharing exclusively gluten free recipes but through her blog, resources and recipes, I took it upon myself to ensure all my recipes moving forward were gluten free. From feedback from readers, having a gluten free option for my recipes was often requested and as of August 2014, all my recipes are 100% gluten free or provide a tested Gluten Free option.
One of the first recipes I shared through the Gluten Free Wednesday parties were these No-Bake Triple Almond Breakfast Cookies. I am a huge fan of no-bake recipes and have a plethora on my site with more to come! These cookies are so easy to whip up and they use almonds in three ways: almond butter, almond flour and whole almonds. We could technically even say 4 if you use almond milk too!
Thank you so much Linda for letting me guest post on here. Linda’s been such a huge wealth of knowledge and inspiration but most importantly, she has the ability to make me crave meatloaf.
No one has ever had those capabilities.
- ¼ cup almond flour, sifted
- 2 Tablespoons coconut flour, sifted
- 1 teaspoon coconut sugar (adjust to taste)
- ¼ cup almond butter
- ¼ - ½ cup almond milk
- ½ cup whole almonds, divided
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 Tablespoon shredded coconut
- 1 scoop of protein powder
- Chocolate chunks
- Dried fruit
- Chopped nuts
- In a small mixing bowl, add the almond flour, coconut flour, coconut sugar, cinnamon and sea salt. Add the almond butter and mix well until a crumbly batter is formed.
- Slowly add in almond milk, one tablespoon at a time, until a firm dough is formed. Add the shredded coconut, half the whole almonds, and any other add-ins as desired.
- Form into palm sized cookies and plate. Add remaining whole almonds on top and refrigerate for 2 - 4 hours to firm up.
These cookies are quite soft once left at room temperature. It's best to store them in a fridge or freezer.
