Gluten-Free Almond Cookies

I have two family members require a gluten-free diet. They ask me often about cookies, cake, or bread that they can enjoy instead of a boring diet. I like to explore foods that are easy and tasty to make. I believe a healthy, gluten-free diet can be easy to achieve. These almond cookies recipe is my creation, and it is definitely healthy and delicious.

2 cups almond flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 egg
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/2 cup sugar
10 blanched almonds, split in half

Preheat oven to 350°.
In a mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients and use a handheld blender to mix until forming a sticky dough.
Use a small ice scream scoop to scoop out just enough dough to make small balls and to place on a baking sheet. Press almonds into the center of each dough ball. Lightly press down.
Bake in the preheated oven for 12 to 16 minutes or until becoming a light golden color. Let cool and store in an airtight container.
