Gong Hei Fat Choy! This morning, my daughter and I cleaned and decorated the house for the Lunar New Year. We decided to make some healthy almond cookies without butter. They came out puffy and tasted wonderful. Happy New Year!


  • 1 ½ Cups of Flour
  • 5 oz Nonfat Organic Greek Vanilla Yogurt
  • ¼ tsp. Baking Soda
  • ¼ Cup Sugar
  • ¼ Cup Honey
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Tbsp. Wheat Germ
  • 1 tsp. Almond Extract
  • 1/3 C Blanched Almonds
  • 24 Raw Almonds (for the top)


Set the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Combine all ingredients (except raw almonds) in a mixer and drop a teaspoon-sized amount onto a baking sheet. Top each cookie with a raw almond. Bake for 10 minutes. Makes 24 cookies.
