  • 1 cup dairy-free butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup organic powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup almonds, finely chopped

  • In a large bowl beat the vegan butter, organic powdered sugar and the vanilla extract, with a hand mixer, until light and fluffy.
  • Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder and mix well.
  • Add the oats and almonds. Mix well.
  • Shape into little long logs and then place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  • After they are placed on the sheet curve them into little crescents.
  • Bake at 325° for 15 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and place on wire racks.
  • With a fine sieve, sprinkle the powdered sugar over the tops while the cookies are still warm.

If serving later you may need to re-sprinkle with powdered sugar right before serving. You will definitely need to re-sprinkle after freezing.
Nothing wrong with that. Ha!
