Below are ingredients, books and kitchen tools that can be used in this recipe and ordered from Amazon:


1 1/2 cups of sprouted or crispy almonds

1/3 cup unsalted butter

1 cup arrowroot powder

1/2 cup Rapadura or Sucanant (whole cane sugar)

3/4 tsp. sea salt

1 tsp. baking soda

1 ½ tsps. Almond extract

1 egg

1/3 cup dried cherries, chopped

Put almonds in a food processor and process until very fine. Add the rest of the ingredients except the cherries to the crushed almonds and process until well blended. Stir in the dried cherries. Form into small balls (about 1 heaping teaspoon). Place on a cookie sheet lines with unbleached parchment paper and bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.

I like to serve these almond cherry cookies with home-made eggnog or healthy chocolate milk .

Note: I always encourage everyone to use as much local, grown without chemicals ingredients (organic), and meat, eggs and dairy from animals that were/are free-ranging and were/are raised without hormones and antibiotics. Seafood should be wild from unpolluted waters.
