Chinese Almond Cookies

Soft, chewy and relatively healthy, these grain-free Chinese almond cookies are just as delicious as the more traditional kind!

The Chinese New Year is in four days! Doing anything? I’m assuming not. But you know what you could do? Make these Chinese almond cookies! :D

Not only are they grain-free, but they’re dairy-free and vegan! I often have a problem coming up with vegan goodies, just because I’m fond of eggs in baked goods, but you won’t miss them here!

I made these cookies as a guest post for Beth of Tasty Yummies. If you eat gluten-free or don’t eat gluten-free but like healthier food, you have to check her out! Lots of good stuff going on over there.

If almond isn’t exactly your flavor, try some of the other flavor combinations I mention in the post!

For the recipe, pop on over to Tasty Yummies: Grain-free Chinese Almond Cookies. I hope to see you over there! :)

    Hi, can I use Honey instead of maple syrup?
    Thank you!

      Yes! You may need to bake them a minute or so less, though.

    Howdy Erin,

    Another Texan living in Germany and first time commenter. I enjoy reading your blog and have found it very helpful with the substitutions especially for baking! We are vegan and have no issue with gluten so I haven’t made many recipes but I will be trying the almond cookies this weekend and wanted to say thanks for all the work you do.

      Hi, Carla! Where are you in Germany? :) I feel awful that I don’t have more vegan recipes on here. When I make something new, I often think about how I could make it vegan but the eggs… they get me every time! Thanks so much for your kind comment. It was nice to hear from another Texanerin in Germany! :)

        We are just south of Heidelberg in Wiesloch. I’m getting better at veganizing things but am not as confident with the gluten free flours AND egg substitutions. And I still enjoy reading even if I don’t end up trying something.

          That sounds nice! I hope it’s sunnier down there. I really miss sunshine. ;) PS – I have some whole wheat vegan goodies coming up! Hopefully that’s something you’ll be able to make. :)

    Erin, I love almond cookies! I mix ground almonds into the cookie dough all the time. I also like to add chocolate chips sometimes.
