Almond cookies

 Healthy and Sattvic are the two words that come to me when we refer to almonds. The texture, purity, and nutritional value of this cookies are suitable for all doshas. Makes 15 cookies.

Almonds hold large amounts of manganese and Vitamin E. They are powerful antioxidants. The copper content helps in development of bone and improves nerve functioning. Almonds are good for proper brain development because of their Tryptophan content. The Vitamin B is good for healthy hair, skin, and nails.

Almonds are also excellent for relieving stress and controlling mood swings.

1 c. ground raw almonds

Mix them together with:
1/4 c. maple syrup
1/8-1/4 tsp. freshly ground cardamon
2 tsps. rose water

Preheat oven to 300F.  Grind finely in a blender or food processor.
Drop the batter in half-teaspoonfuls onto a well-oiled cookie sheet.  They will spread a bit.  Bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden brown.  Let them cool for just a couple minutes, then remove carefully with a spatula to cool on a plate or wooden board.
