Bienvenidos a (welcome to) Day #19 of Chocolate and Almonds Theme Week(s).
Today's Grain Free Mexican Chocolate Cookies (made with almond flour) were from Siete Family Foods, a Garza family business (based on seven (siete) family members), based in Austin, TX.
The small, light and crunchy cookies made with almond flour (and a blend of other gluten-free flours) had an inviting light cinnamon churro and chocolate (mild cocoa) aroma and flavor with a very slight earthy/mineral note. They tasted rich (fresh tortilla/cassava chips, corn flour cookies (coricos, champurradas) but were not at all oily or greasy.
A hint of salt and a judicious amount of coconut sugar prevented them from being overly sweet. (Thank you.)
In the future, I plan to make tiny ice cream sandwiches with these cookies (filled with homemade vanilla, Mexican chocolate, rose petal and/or vanilla with hibiscus and orange peel ice cream(s)).
Ingredients: "Grain free flour blend (almond flour, tapioca flour, arrowroot flour, chickpea flour, cassava flour), coconut oil, coconut sugar, avocado oil, alkalized cocoa powder, apple cider vinegar, cinnamon, sea salt, baking soda, jasmine tea extract."
