Feel good when eating these cookies!
This recipe is kids-friendly. My toddler absolutely loved them, they are soft and moist, yet holding the shape well. Easy to grab and go, for snacking or tea parties and desserts. We don’t have to feel bad eating cookies, because they are home-made out of only natural ingredients. No oil, not even a coconut one! I try my best in my recipes to make them delicious and healthy at the same time. You can definitely feel good and nourish your body while eating all the meals, which I offer on this blog. And these cookies are not an exception. I do not compromise and firmly believe that it is very much possible to make desserts and sweets as healthy as your morning smoothie. We are surrounded by a huge variety of whole foods, nuts, seeds, and fruits and we really don’t need any added sugar or chemicals to make the dessert delicious.
Why these cookies are so healthy?
The sweetness in the almond pulp cookies with apples is achieved by adding apples and banana, which are naturally sweet. We only enhance it a little by adding 1 tablespoon of maple syrup. Moreover, almonds are naturally sweet nuts and that is why almond pulp suits great for sweet baking goods.
Instead of using oil, which is not a whole food, I recommend adding almond butter (pressed almonds) to achieve a richer flavor and make them bind together. Almond pulp is a base of these cookies, but we also add some coconut touch by adding coconut flakes and coconut flour. Sweet, soft, tender and nutritious!
P.S. If you happen to have whole almonds, you can also make the cookies out of them just by grinding them in a food processor first. However, to make the cookies tender it is better to soak the almonds before and also add some more liquid.

Blend wet ingredients
Add the dry ingredients to the blender
When the wet ingredients are blended, add all the other ingredients from the list to the blender and mix it all together, to get a dough-like batter. Set it aside for 20 minutes until the dough firms up a little.
Heat up the oven on 180C. Meanwhile, take a baking tray or a rack with a parchment paper and form the cookies with help of 2 tablespoons or an ice-cream scooping spoon. I used just 2 tablespoons. You will get about 15-16 cookies depending on the size.
Let the cookies cool on a rack.
