Almond & Carob Cookies


This is the recipe that started it all.  I got hooked on almond flour.  Not only is almond flour packed full of vitamins it is low it carbohydrates.  My type 1 diabetic daughter loves these cookies and she can have lots of them because they are only 9 carbs each. Let's take a look at almond flour for a second.
This is based on a one cup measurment

 Here is some information on almond flour http://www.elanaspantry.com/why-almond-flour/#health


Ingredients:

3 cups almond flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 Tablespoons chocolate chips (I use carob chips)
2 Tablespoons grapeseed oil (or melted coconut oil)
1/2 cup honey
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon guar gum or xanthan gum

Pre-heat the oven to 350* and start mixing all the ingredients.  The dough should form a moist, but not sticky ball.  Form the dough into 20 balls and pat flat with your hand.  Bake the cookies for 7-10 minutes or until the sides are slightly browned.  Each cookie is only about 9g of carbs. 


You can even add a little carob or cocoa powder to this recipe to make a whole different cookie!
