Healthy Recipes - Almond and Cinnamon Christmas Stars
Always treat your skin kindly and optimise your nutrition by eating antioxidant-rich fruit and vegatables, healthy fats from oily fish and nuts, and a varied and balanced diet. Your skin will thank you!
Feed your skin from the inside out with these delightful cinnamon stars, a treat that's not just a feast for the taste buds, but also a recipe for glowing skin, thanks to the nutritious and skin-loving almonds and coconut sugar.
- 1¾ cups of freshly ground almonds (250g)
- ¾ cup of coconut sugar (100g)
- 1 tablespoon of ground chia seeds
- 2 tablespoons of cold water
- 2 tablespoons of maple syrup
- 3 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
- a pinch of vanilla powder
- a pinch of powered xylit for decoration
- Start by grinding the almonds into a flour if you are using whole almonds.
- Place the ground chia seeds and the water into a small bowl. Whisk together with a fork and set aside to thicken for about 10 minutes.
- Place the coconut sugar, ground almonds, cinnamon and vanilla powder into a food processor or big bowl. If you are using a food processor, then mix it shortly. If you are using a hand mixer, just quickly mix everything.
- Add the chia-mix and maple syrup and combine everything for about 30 seconds until a sticky dough forms. If the dough is crumbly, and not sticky, add a teaspoon of cold water.
- Pre-heat the oven to 160°C (320°F).
- Roll the dough out between two pieces of baking paper. They should be around 5 mm thick. Using star shaped cutters, cut out about 30 stars.
- Place the cinnamon stars on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake for 8-10 minutes until golden brown. Let the cookies cool for a few minutes until transferring them to a cooling rack.
Savor these delicious cinnamon stars and remember: great skincare is not just about what you apply externally, but also about what you consume. So sit back, indulge your senses, and let each bite contribute to your inner glow and outer radiance.
Let's not forget what Hippocrates, the father of medicine, once said, 'Let food be the medicine and medicine be the food'.
