Almond Flour Snickerdoodle Cookies from Food for Thin

As almonds are high in protein and very low in carbohydrates and sugar, almond flour is a tasty and lower carb alternative to the traditional wheat flour used by our parents and grandparents. Made by grounding blanched almonds into a fine powder, it’s a rising star in the gluten free and Paleo worlds since almonds are naturally gluten and grain free.

Packed with manganese, vitamin E, monounsaturated fats (the good kinds of fat), and omega 6 fatty acids, almonds are a nutrient powerhouse. These fatty acids play a crucial role in brain function, growth, and metabolism, but our bodies cannot actually produce the acids, so they must be gleaned from food sources—yet another reason to grab a few almond flour treats!

Food for Thin, whose goal is to provide good, wholesome food that is delicious, filling and healthy, has crafted three delectable almond flour cookie flavors. In addition to being a gluten free confectionery, their products are also dairy and preservative free and can be made vegan upon request.

Prepared with organic ground cinnamon and raw organic wildflower honey in lieu of refined sugar, the Snickerdoodles are a selling star.  The classic Chocolate Chip Cookie is also wildly popular—a chewy, chocolaty snack or dessert that will keep you coming back for more. Last but not least, the Oatmeal Golden Raisin Cookies, baked with Golden Hunza Raisins—which are unsulphured and grown without chemical fertilizers—are so delicious even Grandma will want the recipe!

All Food for Thin cookies are made to order, ensuring that only the freshest desserts reach your table. In light of this, please allow 5-7 days for order processing. Order a few different varieties today and start enjoying healthy, scrumptious, lower carb desserts.
