A delicious, no bake healthy cookie recipe which requires 1 bowl and 10 minutes tops to whip up! Using almonds three ways, these cookies are gluten free, paleo, vegan, dairy free and the perfect grab and go healthy breakfast!
I should consider renaming this blog to the ‘no bake blogger’. Or the ‘no bake boy’.Or something with the word lazy….because no bake = easy = my kind of recipe.
I’m keeping with my promise to make paleo friendly recipes for Niki- although I may or may not have been eating them myself. I like to refer to it as quality assurance. I mean, it’s rude to serve other people food which isn’t delicious. Right? RIGHT?
Back to the recipe- I kind of got slightly excited with the almonds. Almond butter and almond flour are the same thing except ground to different levels of perfection. If I didn’t add a few other ingredients, I may as well have just bought a package of almonds and called them breakfast. However, I am not THAT lazy.
The reason for the multiple variations of them is one thing- Texture. Almond butter, almond flour and whole almonds are all the same thing- but the textures of each of them are different. One of Niki’s favourite cookies are these Persian Almond cookies which she used to eat for breakfast. Those cookies were definitely not Paleo (Think almonds, glucose syrup, butter and almond meal) but now she has a substitute for the two weeks. Or three weeks. Any bets it will be close to a year the way she’s going.
These no bake cookies don’t have to be limited to breakfast but cookies for breakfast sounds sexy. Not only are they suitable for Paleo folks, but if you follow a Vegan, Grain Free or Gluten Free diet- you can go to town on these two.
