Toasting almonds releases their full flavor and gives these cookies a rich, nutty taste.


Makes 24 cookies


1/4 cup sliced almonds
2 egg whites
1/3 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 cups uncooked quick oats


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Place almonds on ungreased cookie sheet; bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Set aside.
  2. Combine egg whites, honey, cinnamon and salt in large bowl; stir until well blended. Add oats and toasted almonds; stir until well blended. Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased nonstick baking sheets.
  3. Bake 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.

Cook's Tip

Store unopened packages of nuts in a cool, dark place. Store opened packages in an airtight container in the refrigerator for six months, or in the freezer for up to two years.
