Gluten free Almond Cinnamon Toasties

almond cinnamon toasties

It’s tea time!

As the sky gets darker outside I’m in need of a culinary pick me up. Aren’t you? 
I’m thinking Sweet Almond flavour, combined with the warm fragrance of cinnamon… oh and gluten free it should be, too.

Let’s see what we can come up with in 20 minutes of wild baking action :-)

Ok, here we go.

I have quickly whipped up a gluten free bread dough and formed 6 little macaroon type cookie shapes.

After all, we don’t want to be waiting around here for long, do we?

While the sweet cinnamon aroma is wafting across the kitchen to me, I’m getting stuck into the making of some buttery almond spread for the toasties.

Can’t ever have enough almond anything, can ya ?

Wow, this has turned out like Almond Butter, ooh, I’m liking that.

Yes, of course I would like it even more if I could sweeten the butter up a bit more. But whilst I’m on this boring sugar free diet I’m quite content to have it without.

These crisp little bread rolls gone cookies are just what you need!

The Almond Cinnamon Toasties are done, too, now.

They are much lighter in colour than I had expected and crisp on the outside but just right in the center.

Let’s take a quick bite… mmmhlight, but with a heavenly subtle nutty flavour. I shall be making a whole loaf of this very shortly.

Who would have thought, that’s it’s also gluten free AND vegan!

Perfect, now let’s smother some creamy layer of Almond Cinnamon Spread onto two toasty halfs and build a doppel-decker macaroon…

Ooh, it could get messy.

It’s between me and the almond toasties now, I’m afraid.

You’d better get your oven going. So you can quickly jump on the almond smackaroons train, too ?

      Yummy!! These look delicious and with the almond spread too?? Oh yes… perfect for putting on the much needed calories! Thanks for sharing!
      I made some carob cookies on Saturday which were nice. I literally just threw in some almond flour, coconut flour, rice flour, some puffed wholegrain rice, carob powder, a tiny bit of stevia, flax egg, baking soda, and some spices. It wasn’t bad at all. Oh and I also made the Teff Toasties which I LOVED!! xx

        I forgot, I also added coconut oil to the carob cookies, otherwise that would have been an extremely dry mixture ? xx

      Hey Alie, so glad you tried the Teff Toasties – I’m rather partial to them, too. Pitty the flour is a bit tricky to get hold of.

      Wow, your Carob Cookies sound rather moreish, mmhhh… I wonder if they work with Almond Spread ?

        I loved the taste of the Teff Toasties. I’m going to make another batch as I demolished them far too quickly!
        Oh I also forgot that I added some hemp&linseed butter and sunflower seed butter to the carob cookies. Not totally necessary but I was experimenting (I’m sure you’ve done your fair share of ACD experimenting too ? ) Ooh yes the almond spread would work wonderfully. I have my almonds soaking at the moment… can’t wait to whip up a batch which will no doubt be gone by the time I clean the blender LOL! xx

          Wise move, my Teff toasties went down in record speed, too ?

          And I’m ashamed to say that I have already demolished the almond spread/ butter (the SECOND batch I made this morning!). This time round half almond, half sunflower :-) Not bad at all… Hm, what next?!
