Ayurvedic Tridoshic Almond Cookies

Recipe Courtesy

Ayurvedic Almond Cookies

A Healthy Christmas Cookie Recipe that is great for ALL dosha types... 

Firstly, I wanted to share one of my most favorite cookie recipes with you. I usually make these for social gatherings or when I teach a workshop. They are Tridoshic (balancing to all three doshas), extremely easy to make and they taste fantastic!

Tridoshic Almond Cookies
makes approximately 15 cookies
1-cup organic dry roasted almonds
1/4 cup organic maple syrup (grade b)
1/4 teaspoon organic ground cardamom
2 teaspoons water

In a food processor, chop the almonds until fine, then add the cardamom, maple syrup and water and blend together for 2-3 minutes.

Drop the batter in half-teaspoonful amounts onto a well-oiled baking sheet (using ghee or olive oil), leaving about 1-2 inches between them (as they will spread).

Bake at 300F for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown.
