M-J’s Low-Carb Almond Cookies

M-J’s Almond Cookies are low in carbohydrates, and high in protein.  Mix together in a large bowl:

Ground Almonds, 2 cups

1 tablespoon of flour

Almond or Peanut Butter, three tablespoons

Egg Whites, 2

Pomegranate Juice or water, 1/4 cup

Ground Flax-Seed, 1/4 cup

One tablespoon of coconut oil or sesame oil

Splenda or stevia,  to-taste (if you are on the macrobiotic diet, you may wish to use brown rice syrup or barley malt)

Aluminum-Free Baking Powder, 1 teaspoon

Ginger, 1 teaspoon

Cinnamon, 1 teaspoon

Shape dough into balls and flatten them on an un-greased cookie sheet, and bake in moderately hot oven. Watch cookies carefully; they will brown quickly on the bottom, so it may be necessary to move them to a higher oven rack during the last few minutes of baking.
