Almond Criss Cross Cookies

Delicious cookies to be consumed in moderation, given the high nut butter content.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 °F (180 °C). Mix whole wheat flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. In a medium to large bowl, mix the 1 1/3 up Splenda for baking and water, blend with almond butter and vanilla.
  3. Incorporate dry ingredients into the sweetened flavored almond butter.
  4. Drop by tablespoons onto a parchment covered baking sheet, and use a fork to flatten them, making a 'criss-cross' design on each one.
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes, and cool on a wire rack. Once cool, store in a sealed tin in a cool dry place. Will keep for several days.
  6. Note 1: try and stick to an organic whole wheat flour that uses the entire husk of the wheat, which has a much lower glycemic index and also is less dangerous in terms of commercial insecticides, which are found on the outer husk of the wheat grain.
  7. Note 2: The nuts' slow absorption of the carbs in the whole wheat flour, making this a suitable snack that won't sabotage your efforts if you stick to one or two as a snack.
  8. Note 3: If you don't have 100% almond butter, you can make it in the food processor by grinding it until smooth, or you can substitute any other 100% nut butter like peanut.

eh. They weren't bad, but also weren't as close to my favorite peanut butter cookies as I would have liked. I also screwed up and used just regular sea salt (not finely ground) anticipating it would dissolve somewhere along the lines... nope... you're chewing along and all of a sudden get a salty bite... oh well, I'll eat them. I do have to say this was my first time baking with wheat flour and was very impressed. I liked the texture.

I wrote this recipe, I think it contains too much Splenda after all. If you can think of an alternative sweetener that won't give that aftertaste, please let me know!
