Directions for: Balance Cookies


2 cup brown rice flour

1 cup ground almonds

3 Tbsp sesame seeds, lightly toasted

½ tsp ground cinnamon

¼ tsp salt

⅓ cup honey

¼ cup vegetable oil

whole almonds, for garnish


1. Preheat oven to 350 °F and line a baking tray with parchment paper.

2. Stir rice flour, ground almonds, sesame seeds, cinnamon and salt to combine. In a separate bowl, whisk honey and vegetable oil, add to rice flour mixture and blend. Scoop tablespoonfuls of dough and shape each into a ball, placing 2 inches apart on prepared baking tray. Press each cookie to flatten and press a whole almond into the center of each. Bake for about 15 minutes, until cookie starts to brown a little on the bottom. Cool on the tray before removing.

3. The cookies will keep for up to 5 days in an airtight container.
