Almond Rounds (Dairy, Gluten/Grain, and Refined Sugar Free)

I hope everyone has had a healthy, happy start to 2014.  I enjoyed taking some time off of my blog and spend even more time with my family.
This recipe is a creation based on a dessert my mom used to make.  Mom usually made her almond rounds with a bit of jam in the center which tasted and looked great.  This recipe doesn't use any grains as her original recipe required, nonetheless they taste great.
  • 2 cups ground almonds
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 3/4 cup palm or coconut sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon gluten free almond extract
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

Topping Options
  • raspberry jam (I used Le Fruit by Natur-A.Vogel or Crofters) 
  • whole blanched almonds
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F and prepare mini muffin pan.
  2. Combine all ingredients (except topping) until well blended.
  3. Scoop batter into prepared muffin pan.
  4. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until slightly brown on top.
  5. Store in airtight container in the fridge.

  1. I don't have coconut flour on hand. Can I use Bob's GF all purpose flour instead?
