Almond Flour Sugar Cookies

These taste like soft sugar cookies to me.  They are mildly sweet and lovely with a cup of Good Earth Organic Caffeine Free Sweet and Spicy Tea (Amazon Affiliate Link).

  • 1/2 cup cooked navy beans, drained
  • 1 whole large egg
  • 2 cups packed Honeyville (affiliate link) blanched almond flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

  3. Blend the vanilla, egg and cooked drained navy beans in a blender or food processor until creamy.
  4. Add almond flour, baking soda and cinnamon powder, mix by hand or with a hand mixer.
  5. Using a one tablespoon measurement or scoop, place balls of dough on a lightly greased cookie sheet.
  6. Flatten each ball lightly using a fork.

    Hello Starlene,

    Paul Wilson here and Id like to know whether homemade almond flour will work for your cookie recipe? In the past ive bought bobs red mill almond flour and with that said, it was too expensive. I have a magic bullet and ive bought some blanched slivered almonds and grinded them into a flour.

    Hi Paul, yes I do think your homemade almond flour will work just fine. My mother-in-law buys slivered almonds from Costco and grinds them. I have made my own almond flour and like to use my Magic Bullet with the flat blade to do so. If you try the recipe, let us know how it works out! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!! Best, Starlene

  • Tara Q

    Is there anything to use to substitute for the navy beans to make this Paleo-friendly?

    Thanks!

    Hi Tara, a few others have asked. Maybe mashed bananas? If you try it, please let me know how it works out. Of course it is going to change the flavor. Actually you know what I should try it myself. Maybe I’ll do that this weekend since I can compare between the two. Best, Starlene
