So why these cookies and not those cookies you ask? Well, sweets are difficult on a hepatic diet where you want to watch your sugar intake very carefully so we’ll be using local honey here. Also, almond flour plays a big part in the structure of these cookies and the overall recipe can be successfully made gluten-free by omitting the whole wheat flour. Also we are substituting carbs for protein and therefor getting a snack that will satisfy a bit longer than other cookies packed with refined sugar and white flour.
Though these cookies do have a considerable amount of natural sugar and fat in them, the amount per serving is still within what you would expect from any other recipe. The benefit here is getting the polyunsaturated fats that aid in digestion, protein to keep you full in between meals and the fiber from old fashioned oats. If you aren’t a fan of coconut, use safflower oil and 1⁄2 cup more each of ground cashews and oats.
