Directions

These delicious cookies are high in protein and gluten-free. Make sure to store in a container with a loose-fitting lid as the almond flour makes them very moist. 

Prep: 20 minutes, Cook: 12 to 15 minutes, Makes: 2½ dozen cookies

1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Beat together butter, sugars, flaxseed and vanilla extract in a large bowl, then beat in eggs and coffee powder.

2. Stir in almond flour, baking soda and salt and mix well. Stir in toffee bits.

3. Roll tablespoons of dough into balls and roll the tops in chopped almonds. Place on baking sheets and flatten slightly; place a piece of almond paste or marzipan in the center of each.
