In celebration of the upcoming Lunar New Year, 

I thought it would fitting time to bring back this delicious cookie! These cookies were one of my childhood favourites, super moreish & nutty! ⁣

Traditionally, these cookies have egg, butter and gluten, but I’ve made my own version using pantry staples that many more of you can enjoy and which i believe still captures the taste & essence of the original cookie  Bonus, it’s high in protein too, so it will help keep you satiated for longer too

Here is the recipe! ➡️⁣

CHINESE ALMOND COOKIES (vegan, GF, refined sugar free) ⁣

MAKES: 8 cookies⁣



✅1 cup almond meal⁣
✅2 tablespoons coconut flour⁣
✅2 tablespoons protein powder (I used caramel – discount code: “amb-chen” )⁣
✅1/2 teaspoon baking powder ⁣
✅1/4 teaspoon salt⁣


✅1/4 cup pure maple syrup⁣
✅1/4 coconut oil, melted ⁣
Optional: 1 tsp almond essence ⁣
⁣✅Almonds for decoration⁣


1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees C/ 320 degrees F, fanforced. Line a cookie tray with non-stick paper.⁣

2. In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients until mixed⁣

3. Add in the wet ingredients and mix until a cookie dough forms⁣

4. form the dough into balls and press down into thick cookie shapes. Press an almond into the top of each cookie⁣

5. Bake the cookie for 10-12 mins until the top is golden . Remove from the oven and allow to cool fully. The cookie will become a bit firmer once it has cooled down.⁣

Storage tips: in an airtight container at room temp for up to 3 days or in the fridge for up to a week.⁣

To all my Chinese friends out there: Happy new year! Can’t wait to see you guys try these!⁣
