These cookies are great, I am always looking for healthier options in sweets. Mine did not turn out chewy like that last reviewers did, they are similar to an oatmeal cookie, moist with a little crunch from the almonds! I served them at coffee for friends and they all asked for the recipe!
Supercharged Cherry-Almond Cookies
Fruits and nuts give this cookie nutritional cred: Almonds provide vitamin E, calcium, and magnesium; tart cherries contribute disease-fighting anthocyanins and sleep-regulating melatonin. Find almond flour in your supermarket's natural foods section, or pulse 1 cup almonds in a food processor.
