It's almost Tuesday, February 14 a.k.a. Valentine's Day 2017! Not sure what to get your sugar this year? How about freshly baked cookies? Always a winner! And would you believe me if I tell you that these almond meal crunchies are actually healthy and good for you?! Promise! Easy & quick to make as well. What more do you want? Oh right... someone to eat these with :-). But you can also just bake up a batch and eat them "aaaaaall byyyyyy yoooourseeeeelf!"

Almond flour cookies. I first learned about these cookies through Mimi Ikonn. Mimi has been an inspiration for me for many years now. If you don't know who she is, look her up on YouTube and Instagram. Mimi Ikonn and her husband Alex Ikonn have always inspired me to eat healthy foods, preferably produce from your own country and what is in season at the moment. The original recipe for these almond flour cookies comes from a cookbook Mimi wrote a couple of years ago. It's called Healthy & Delicious - Easy recipes that will make you look and feel great. I wrote a blog post on this book that you can check out here. Unfortunately I don't think the cookbook is being sold anymore. Mimi if you're reading this, so many people are still asking for your cookbook and recipes. I even had a few women asking me if they could buy my copy of your cookbook. Which is not gonna happen because I love it too much. Even though I made a few small changes I still hope you don't mind me sharing your recipe with my readers. Because frankly, these cookies are too good not to share. The cookies have a nice nutty flavour thanks to the almond flour and are super quick to make. These almond flour cookies gluten and dairy free and contain only a little bit of sugar.

3 cups  or 300 grams almond flour
2 eggs
1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

I added cinnamon and cashew nut butter. I also swiped the honey for agave syrup. The original recipe says it makes 16 cookies but I always end up having 20-22 cookies. I guess it all depends on how thick you make your cookie and as you can see in my photo I used different sizes in cookie cutters so this also makes a huge difference.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F or 180 degrees C.
Whisk all ingreidents together in a bowl. You can always add more flour if the dough is too sticky. You then roll out the dough, flatten it with a roller and use heart shaped cookie cutter to get the desired shape. Place all of your cookies on a baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes or until firm and golden. For me it took about 15 minutes to get the cookies the color and crispness that I typically go for in a homemade cookie.

I sincerely hope now that you've read this recipe you are gonna buy the right ingredients and make these cookies for your special someone. If you do, be sure to let me know what you think!

Happy baking! Happy love making!? ;-)
