Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond flour, plus additional for dusting
  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour, plus additional for dusting
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/3 cup prepared green tea (brewed for 5 minutes), cooled to room temperature
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp pure almond extract
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped raw unsalted almonds
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pitted dates (TIP: Opt for natural date varieties, such as Medjool and deglet noor, which contain no added sugar or preservatives)

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, stir flours and baking powder until well combined. With a pastry cutter, cut in oil until mixture resembles the texture of coarse oatmeal. Stir in egg whites, tea and vanilla and almond extracts. With a rubber spatula, fold in almonds and dates.
  3. Turn dough onto a lightly floured work surface and shape into 2 9 x 2-inch logs. Place logs 4 inches apart on baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes, or until lightly browned. Let cool at room temperature for 10 minutes. Leave oven heat at 350°F.
  4. With a serrated knife, slice logs diagonally into 1/2-inch slices. Remove parchment paper from baking sheet and place slices on sheet, flat side-down, in a single layer. Bake for 10 minutes, then remove from oven and turn slices. Return to oven and bake for 8 to 10 more minutes, until dry and crisp. Let cool completely.
