No-Bake Almond Cookie Recipe

A Reader Recipe: No-Bake Almond Cookies

No reason to turn on the oven! FitSugar reader eatingbirdfood has a no-bake almond cookie recipe, which she posted in our Healthy Recipe group.

These cookies may be small, but they make up for their size in the flavor department. They’re all natural, have only five ingredients and no added sugar – overall a great alternative to white flour and sugar-based cookies. Storing the cookies in the fridge will keep them dense, chewy, and delicious.

See the recipe after the break!
