One of my favorite cookies when I was a child was no bake cookies, as my mom called them. I’ve only made them once before, but this weekend when the oven was occupied drying tomatoes and we were craving sweets, it was time for no bake cookies! I’ve updated the recipe to be gluten-free and a wee bit tastier.
Gluten-Free No Bake Almond Cookies
In a heavy sauce pan, bring to a boil:
- 2 cups organic sugar
- 4 Tablespoons organic cocoa
- 1 stick organic butter
- 1/2 cup organic milk
Boil carefully for one minute. Add:
- 3 Tablespoons organic flax seed
- 1 cup organic almond butter
- 1 Tablespoon organic vanilla
- 3 cups certified gluten-free oats
Mix thoroughly, then drop by spoonful onto waxed paper. Allow to harden and cool about twenty minutes.
Super simple, super yummy…even my ten-year-old can make these cookies!
