The almond bars that I raved about earlier? Here’s the recipe! No pictures, sorry, we gobbled it up!
1 cup almond flour (Bob’s Red Mills is okay)
2/3 cup vegan sugar
1 flaxseed gel (1 TBSP flaxseed meal + 3 TBSP cold water)
1/2 tsp anise extract (I used my homemade one)
confectioners’ sugar for dusting (Whole Foods has a corn-free one, made with arrowroot powder)
1.) Preheat the oven to 350º, and lightly grease the bottom of a 9×9 pan with olive oil. Dust the bottom of the pan with a bit of confectioners’ sugar.
2.) Mix almond flour and sugar in a bowl. Be sure it’s evenly mixed. Add the flaxseed gel and anise extract. Mix well.
3.) Put the batter in the pan, you don’t have to spread it perfectly : it will melt. Sprinkle confectioners’ sugar on the top.
4.) Bake for 20 minutes.
5.) It WILL be tough getting out, but you can do it with a metal spatula! Or try with foil on the bottom of the pan and take it out, to make it easier. Makes 16 pieces.
Suggestions made by my cousin: dip in coffee, and you will positively SWOON!
