Almond Flour Cookies with Honey Powder

Today’s recipe is for these Almond Flour Cookies with Honey Powder. First off, if you haven’t heard of it before, honey powder, like liquid honey, can be used as a sweetener or flavouring. In powder form, the consistency is much easier to maintain, making it perfect for dry rubs and cake, cookies or bread mixes.

Honey powder contains no artificial additives and provides the flavour characteristics of honey, but without the liquid.

I am working with Chayah Foods to create some awesome recipes for their new range of superfood powders, which includes this honey powder, so I decided to bake some cookies with this magical stuff.

Mixing Almond Flour & Honey Powder

The recipe is very simple – I always use almond flour in my cookie recipes and this time all I did was substitute icing sugar with the powdered honey.

The cookies are nutty and rich, taste similar to shortbread, but with a sweet honey undertone.

The are gluten free and refined sugar free., but I did use butter because it helps the almond flour stick together and form biscuit shapes. I also added a dash of vanilla extract because it always makes baked goods taste yummy, but it’s optional.

The dough may seem very crumbly, but the more you work it in your hands the easier it becomes to work with.

My advice is to roll small pieces in your hand and then squish down on a greased baking tray with a fork, or you can use a cookie cutter like I did.

You won’t be able to roll this dough with a rolling pin, but you can press it down firmly to create a round biscuit too.

These Almond Flour Cookies with Honey Powder taste similar to a shortbread biscuit but they are richer in taste due to the use of almond flour. The honey powder is the only sweetener used in this recipe. These cookies are gluten free and refined sugar free and a perfect treat to eat with a cup of tea.
