Almonds are one of the few high-fat foods that are really good for you. Eating some after a meal can help to reduce the rise of blood sugar. Almonds enable your brain to function more effectively while keeping your hair, skin, and nails beautiful. Almonds also reduce your risk of heart disease and lower bad cholesterol. You may also replace the almonds in this recipe with many other nuts, seeds, legumes, and grains using the same water to food ratio.

Gluten-Free Almond-Cardamom Cookies Recipe

Sugar Cookies. Chocolate Chip Cookies. Peanut Butter Cookies. Hazelnut Cookies. Gingerbread Cookies. We can’t get enough of any of them, but we thought we’d try some different flavors for this round of baking: almond, cardamom, and chickpea flour.

Subbing conventional flour for chickpea flour, this almond cookie recipe is not only simple and delicious but friendly for those on gluten-free diets. High in protein, chickpea flour can generally be found in speciality stores, as it’s a staple in Indian cooking. (It can even be an egg replacer in vegan recipes when mixed with equal parts water.)
