The secret to these delicious crumbly almonds cookies with honey is the toasted almond flour. Almond flour differs from traditional flours because it is not based on wheat or other grains. Almonds and almond flour are an important source of magnesium, a mineral that supports the activities of the nervous system. You can find it in health food stores or in the best organic supermarkets. You can also prepare it at home, toasting the almonds in the oven for five minutes and, once cooled, chop them in a food processor.
The result will be crispy and fragrant egg free almond cookies with honey. The olive oil pastry gives a special, healthy and delicious touch.
