Here’s the recipe I promised!

Posted on

The almond bars that I raved about earlier? Here’s the recipe! No pictures, sorry, we gobbled it up!

Almond Bars

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!

  1. I can vouch for this…absolutely delicious. Matt had it right when he compared the texture to Lemon squares although lemon squares are a bit moister. This was less but tasted like mmmm, it’s Christmas!
