Enjoy this almond cookie recipe anytime of day, in lunch boxes or after school, but as a breakie they are good too. Almonds are a top source or calcium, protein and other nutrients, Barley is a slow release of energy, Macadamia oil is a healthy oil and filling too, quite a balanced start to the day if you are on the run and didn’t have time to cook porridge or poach eggs! There won’t be any fights to get this breakie into the kids.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • First prepare the Strawberry compot by hulling and roughly chopping the punnet of strawberries and placing in a small saucepan to simmer down for about 20 minutes, keep an eye on it and stir occasionally, while the strawberries are reducing to a "Jam" you can prepare the rest of the recipe
  • Preheat oven to 170 degrees Celcius
  • Line 2 baking trays with good quality baking paper
  • In a food processor, combine all of the cookie ingredients on a medium / low speed for a few seconds
  • The cookie dough should easily for a ball and retain its shape
  • Form small balls (just rough shapes about 1 Tablespoon in size) and flatten them onto the trays
  • Press your finger in the centre of each ball to form a well for the compot
  • By now the Strawberries should be a thick syrup consistency but still chunky, have a quick taste, if you feel they are not sweet enough, add a teaspoon or 2 of Stevia powder
  • Now to finish off the compot, you don't need to rinse your food processor, no worries is a few cookie crumbs remain, just add the cooked strawberries and combine on high speed for a few seconds, you will now have a strawberry puree
  • In the well of each cookie, add about 1/2 teaspoon of the Strawberry compot
  • Now bake in the oven for about 15-20 minutes until golden brown
  • Although it is tempting to dive right in, allow to cool before eating
  • Store in an air tight container for a few days
  • Enjoy anytime of day, lunch boxes or after school, but as a breakie they are not bad, Almonds are a top source or calcium, protein and other nutrients, Barley is a slow release or energy, Macadamia oil is a healthy oil and filling too, quite a balanced start to the day if you are on the run and didn't have time to cook porridge or poach eggs!

    Hi what could I use instead of barley flour? Would oat flour work using the same measurement?

      Hi Lynsey. Thanks for your message. Oat flour will be a fab substitute. Most flours will work xoxSha
