Oatmeal in itself is a good choice to add fiber and iron and vitamins A, B-6 and magnesium to your cookie. Substitute a bit of almond flour for some of the all purpose flour for more benefits.
Almond flour is nothing more than finely ground almonds. Almonds add more flavor, fiber, magnesium and vitamin E. I use Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour for it’s smooth texture.
Win, win!
I really loved the texture of these Almond Oatmeal Cookies. Maple sugar makes these cookies a little chewy, soft but not crumbly. Almond extract adds extra almond flavor. I chose not to add almond pieces to the batter. Although chopped almonds in these cookies would be divine!
