Almond Cookies are a delectable delight. However, you haven't tried almond cookies until you've tried the Chinese version. No one knows when these delicious cookies were invented. However, some people believe Chinese almond cookies are the descendent of Chinese walnut cookies, which were created during the era of the Ming Dynasty in the 16th century. Nevertheless, we are thankful to the individual who made these almond cookies, as they are delicious and satisfyingly sweet. They are a buttery, sweet slightly nutty flavor and are sure to have you eating a few of these almond cookies at once. Surely best paired with some tea like our recipe of Cinnamon Tea

What are Chinese almond cookies made of?

Chinese almond cookies consist of almond flour, vegan butter, salt, flaxseeds, water, almond extract, vanilla extract, gluten-free all-purpose flour, granular sugar-free sweetener, baking soda, and coconut milk, and sliced almonds.   

What happens if you use almond flour in cookies?

Almond flour can change the texture of cookies and give them a slightly nutty flavor. Almond flour can also cause cookies to spread a little more. In addition to this, you may have to add additional eggs to the cookie dough to bind the almond flour together.   

Does almond flour raise blood sugar?

Almond flour will not raise your blood sugar. Foods made with traditional wheat flour contain lots of carbs and low fat and fiber levels. The excess of carbs from wheat causes your blood sugar to rise and fall several times, leaving you hungry and tired and craving high-calorie, sugar-rich foods. In contrast, almond flour is relatively low in carbs and contains extraordinary amounts of healthy fats and fibers. Therefore, almond flour is a low glycemic index food. In other words, it gradually releases sugar into the bloodstream creating a sustainable energy source.   

Is almond flour good for weight loss?

Almond flour contains protein which can help you feel fuller for longer, curb hunger cravings and stimulate weight loss.

Mix the ground flaxseeds and water in a bowl and set them aside for 5 minutes.   
Add the almond flour, vegan butter, and salt to a stand mixer bowl outfitted with the paddle attachment.  
Mix it on low for 3 minutes until it has a coarse texture.  
Add the flaxseed mixture to the almond flour mixture and mix until it is incorporated.   
Whisk the gluten-free all-purpose flour, sugar-free sweetener, baking soda, and slivered almonds in a bowl until combined.   
Add the gluten-free flour mixture to the mixer bowl and mix just until combined.   
Lay a sheet of plastic wrap on your countertop, add the almond cookie dough and shape it into a circular disc. Let the almond cookie dough sit in the fridge for 2 hours.   
Preheat your oven to 375 °F, then line the 2-3 baking sheets with parchment paper.   
Remove the almond cookie dough from the fridge, unwrap it, and roll them into 36 balls that are about 1-inch in diameter.   
Place the almond cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet and flatten each cookie slightly.   
Brush each almond cookie with coconut milk.   
Bake the almond cookies for 15-17 minutes until the cookies are slightly golden.   
Let the almond cookies cool for 5 minutes, then place them on a wire rack to cool completely.
