Lemony Lavender Cookies
If you’re up for a bit of flavour adventure, you'll love these cookies.
These cookies are lemony, a little sophisticated, gluten-free, and low in added sugar (compared to most cookies).
Make sure you know where your lavender comes from! Use culinary lavender, which is safe for consumption (not all ornamental lavender is safe).
(makes 14 cookies)
Grind chia seeds in a food processor to form a powder. Remove to a small bowl, pour in the water and lemon juice, and mix together well. Set aside.
Place the lavender in the food processor and pulse 1-2 times to crush it. Pour it into a mixing bowl and add the almond flour, salt, and baking soda. Stir to combine.
Add the chia mixture, maple syrup, butter, vanilla, and lemon zest. Mix well – you may need to use your hands.
Cover the dough in the refrigerator for at least 20-30 minutes to chill.
Preheat your oven to 325ºF/165ºC and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Remove the cookie dough from the refrigerator and roll it into 1” (2 cm) balls. Place the balls on the sheet and flatten slightly using a fork or the bottom of a glass.
Bake until they start to turn golden brown (about 15 minutes). Let cool slightly before removing it from the pan.
