These melt in your mouth cookies are
Have no refined sugars
High in protein. I use my Vitamix to grind all the dry ingredients to a fine flour and use it again to mix all the wet ingredients to a smooth liquid.
1 cup of raw almonds
11/2 cups of coconut flour
1/2 cup of oats
Blend until a fine flour is formed
1/2 cup of coconut oil
Juice of 1/2 orange
1/3 cup of maple syrup
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Blend until smooth
Combine dry and wet ingredients and add grated peel of 1 orange. Whisk until well blended.
The cookie batter will be a little crumbly.
Take a spoonful of the batter and form a ball with your hands.
Put it on a parchment lined baking sheet and press it down to form a flat cookie, repeat with the rest of the batter.
Arrange cookies close together, they will not expand with baking.
Bake cookies at 350 degrees F (175 C) for 15-20 minutes until golden at the edges.
Cookies will be soft when warm and crunchy as they cool.
