Healthy Almond Cookie Recipe, Free of Dairy and Gluten

Untitled

My aunt has long made these delicious almond cookies for our large clan of relatives over the Christmas holidays. Free of dairy and gluten, I would contend that these cookies are quite a bit healthier than most conventional store-bought baked goods. They're definitely a good source of easily absorbed protein, fiber, calcium, and magnesium.

Add a pinch of chilli powder to the mix and you may just have a new favourite dish for family and friends.

Called doh toh ree mook in Korean, these lovely jello squares can be made with a few different primary ingredients, the healthiest of which are acorn powder and green bean powder - both are readily available in Korean grocery stores. No need to add gelatin - if you follow the instructions below, it will come out just like jello without sugar. Read more
