Healthy Almond Cookies

Healthy Almond Cookies

To kick of January here are my Healthy Almond Cookies, adapted from and inspired by The Whole Pantry.. these cookies are made from super healthy ingredients, taste AMAZING and are really easy to make.


These cookies are packed with healthy fats, which help to manage cholesterol levels, as well as the powerful antioxidant Vitamin E, which helps to keep us healthy and our skin looking good. These cookies are naturally gluten-free (essential if you have coeliac disease) and can be made dairy-free by using diary-free chocolate or cacao nibs.


Do let me know if you make this too!



*Dark chocolate contains less added fat & sugar than milk or white chocolate & contains more antioxidants which keep us healthy! Cacao is the unprocessed version of cocoa and is a great source of antioxidants to keep us healthy.


Almond Cookies

These cookies make the perfect mid-meal snack (I’d suggest 1 to 2 as a serving) and are so satisfying. They taste and smell delicious!!

    I made these cookies today, super easy, quick and minimal ingredients needed, I found the “dough” to be a little bit too crumbly to roll into balls so I added 2tbsp of water just to bind the mixture together a bit more. Super tasty bitesize cookies, I made 12 as Nic suggested but making 6 would make more of a treat but then again I will probably just eat two at a time but at least now I have he option 😉

      Thanks for your fab comment Carla! And your lovely piccis!! Yes I may make 10 from the mixture next time – and adding a touch more oil can help the dough to bind too 🙂 Nic xx

    I made some today & used cocoa powder. I also thought I’d try adding some ground ginger, as chocolate & ginger go well together. As I wasn’t sure if 1tsp would be too overpowering I tried 1/4tsp. Can’t even taste it! Will do them with 1 tsp next time & let you know how it goes.

      Great suggestion Dawn, thank you for your comment! x

    Beautiful, these should keep me going on my New year’s workouts :). But I think I’d like to add some fresh flavour (and fast sugars) to these cookies, maybe some apples to the dough, what do you say? Thank you very much for the recipe, take care!

      Hi Chantal, I’d say feel free to experiment! Apples release their energy slowly though, so I wouldn’t call them ‘fast sugars’ 😉 x

    Thanks for the fab recipe! Can these be made with Coconut sugar instead of honey, agave nectar etc?

    Hi Nic,
    Do you think I could use coconut butter instead of coconut oil? Thanks!

      Hello! I honestly don’t know.. I don’t think so as they are two different products xx
