These sugar-free oatmeal and almond cookies hide very well just how good they taste and how good they are for you. And so very easy to make. It's coffee time!
Why we ❤️ it
Not long ago I was musing about how I got my love for coffee. Coffee with cookies was always a comforting afternoon ritual. I have grandma to credit for that. She always served coffee with something else, whether it was galletas de panadería, coconetes, or some other cookies or crackers.
So here are my cookies without sugar that go perfectly with coffee.
About this recipe
These are very different from grandma's cookies, but every bit as good. They're easy to make, and I fooled kids and grownups who couldn't guess that these were no-sugar-added cookies.
It's incredible how crispy they were. Made with natural ingredients, and sweetened with Medjool dates, they are also very nutritious. Perfect for snacking too. I see myself adding a new tradition to our family.
