Now…just replace the baum with bread and you get —- MANDEL BREAD!
“It’s go time!”
I am a big fan of Ashley. I am also a big fan of biscotti (although I have never made it – just inhaled it). Now, when Ashley said that she thought she found something “better than biscotti“, I just had to give it a go. (Afterall, she did convince me to make my own coconut butter!)
After reading her recipe, I knew I wanted to try the vegan version!
Can I tell you something? I have never ever made a vegan-version of anything before – let alone desserts! It has been ingrained into me that to bake, you have to use butter, sugar and eggs. This recipe blew that idea out of the water.
I made my first ever flax egg!
And then there was mandel bread!
Now, honey – let me teeeell you! I just came from a week of eating chocolate chip cookies and this – as proclaimed by both Binks and I – this was one of the most delicious refreshing cookies ever! I will absolutely be making these again.
The recipe was full-flavored, nutty, crunchy, and light. Had a great crumb and went fabulously with my tea , and at night when I couldn’t help but grab more! 🙂
I used Ashley’s veganized recipe, but I used half whole wheat and half unbleached all-purpose flour. I loved the flavor of this cookie!
And just like Mandelbaum – Mandel Bread won’t be beat!
