Paleo/ Low Carb Almond Poppy Seed CookiesSubmitted by: BTVMADS
IntroductionI adore the flavor and aroma of almond baked goods, and these subtly sweet cookies definitely deliver. Each cookie is grain free and has just 1.5 net carbs, 1.7 grams of fiber, and 4 grams of protein!

4 egg whites
2 cups almond flour
1 tbsp. canola oil
1/2 tsp. almond extract
2 tbsp. poppy seeds
1/4 cup sweetener of your choice -- I used 1 tbsp. superfine sugar and 3 tbsp. splenda
1 tbsp. coconut flour
If you eat a paleo/ no artificial sweetener diet, I suggest using granulated stevia that has been made superfine in the food processor. You need it to be a granular product, not liquid, for cookie stability

Combine all ingredients except the egg whites in a medium bowl. It will be a clumpy, crumbly mixture.
Beat the egg whites in a larger metal bowl until soft peaks form.
Sprinkle a small amount of the almond mixture over the egg whites and gently fold together. Repeat, using just 1/4 cup at a time, until all of the mixture is folded into the egg whites.
Drop by heaping teaspoons onto 2 parchment-lined cookie sheets. Bake for 6-8 minutes. Remove from the oven and let them sit for one minute, then cool on a cooling rack.
