Almond Oat Cookies February 7, 2012

This recipe started off as the cowgirl cookies recipe that I had to modify to get it to fit into smaller pasta sauce jars I had so I could give them as xmas gifts… then I decided to try replacing some flour with almond meal and tweaking it a bit more.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup almond meal *
1/2 cup wholemeal SR flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup choc chips
1/2 cup shredded coconut (or use 1/4 cup desiccated)
1/2 cup butter (melted)
1/4 cup raw sugar
1 egg
1tsp vanilla essence
1/2 tsp cinnamon
About 2tb ground linseeds (which you can leave out)

Method:
Mix together, roll into balls, flatten out to about 1cm thick (they won’t really rise much) and bake at 180ÂșC for 15-20 mins.

* You can use 1 cup of SR flour instead of half flour and half almond meal, but you may need to add a little more melted butter, as the flour makes the mixture dryer than using almond meal.

You could leave out the choc chips or use sultanas instead. I sometimes also add about 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts too.
