healthy wholesome almond crossiant cookies recipe method

  1. Preheat your oven to 175°C and line two baking trays with parchment paper.
  2. For the almond filling, blend all the filling ingredients in a food processor until they form a thick paste. Set the filling aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the melted coconut oil, coconut sugar, and egg until you achieve a creamy texture (use an electric mixer if you have one). Then, sift in the flour and baking powder, gently kneading until the dough is well combined.
  4. Using an ice cream scoop or large spoon, portion out the cookie dough. Make a small indentation in the centre of each portion and fill it with a spoonful of the almond filling. Roll the dough between your palms, then coat it with sliced almonds. Place onto a lined baking tray and press the cookie ball down slightly with the palm of your hand. Repeat this process until you have 8 large cookies.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes until golden brown. Allow them to cool completely before enjoying them.
