1/2 cup finely ground raw almonds
3 ounces soft or regular tofu or 1 large egg
1/3 cup orange juice
1/3 cup almond butter
1/3 cup canola oil
2 tablespoons date sugar (optional)
1 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon powdered stevia extract

1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt


• Preheat the oven to 375°F. Oil a cookie sheet.
• Grind the almonds to a fine meal in the blender. Place in a bowl and set aside.
• Blend the tofu and orange juice in the blender.
• Cream the almond butter and oil together in a mixing bowl. Stir in the date sugar, almond extract, stevia extract, and grated orange rind. Add the blended tofu (or egg) and mix well.
• Stir the almond meal, flour, leavenings, and salt together in a bowl. Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients. Add just enough flour so that the batter stops sticking to the sides of the bowl and forms a ball. Chill the dough for easier handling.
• Roll the dough into small balls with your hands and, place on the cookie sheet. Flatten the cookies to about 1/4 inch thick with the palm of your hand. Press 1/2 almond, cut lengthwise, in the center of each cookie. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
