Alternative cookies

Today I’m adding a new category in flagrante delicia, and soon, I’ll start to rearrange all the published recipes and include some that address various types of diets.
I never had ventured on cookies without dairy and eggs, but already started to think about recipes with alternative ingredients that can help to sweeten the lives of those who can not eat certain foods.
I hope that my mission is successful! … These cookies are gone!

Oatmeal, almonds and rye cookies (no eggs, milk or butter)

Makes 20

100 g of oat flakes
90 g almonds, chopped
80 g demerara sugar (or muscovado)
40 ml extra virgin olive oil
40 g of honey
50 g of rye flour
2 tablespoons lemon juice
50 ml of orange juice

Preheat oven to 200º C.
Line an oven tray with parchment paper.
Grind the oatmeal until fine.
Mix the flakes, almonds, rye flour and sugar.
Add honey, olive oil and orange juice and lemon.
Mix until it becomes smooth.
Form small balls of dough (about 20 g each) and flatten them, making cookies.
Bake for about 14 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool down.
