Almond Cookie Recipe – Moroccan

Adapted from Levana Cooks, using Vanilla Bean Levana Nourishments

almond cookie

The Almond Cookie is a  great Moroccan favorite, called ghriba.

Traditionally we make them round and top them with a little cinnamon.
I am including the Traditional Basic Ghriba recipe here as well, so this Moroccan Almond Cookies variation, although it takes some poetic license, is a welcome change of pace, in terms of both shape and ingredients. These melt-in-your-mouth Almond cookies are totally suitable for gluten-free and are vegan without even trying.

For some more protein and nutrients…

Add Vanilla Bean Levana Nourishments pouches to this delicious recipe. It will add protein and nutrients for a healthy and delicious dessert.


1 cup natural margarine spread (health food stores)
¾ cup powdered sugar
2 cups flour: all-purpose, whole wheat pastry, or spelt (gluten-free: use any GF flour—I make mine with chickpea flour)

2 pouches Vanilla Bean Levana Nourishments
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ to ½ teaspoon almond extract
1 cup sliced unpeeled almonds
Powdered sugar for dusting the cookies


Preheat the oven to 325°F. In a food processor, cream the margarine and sugar until very light and fluffy. Add the flour, salt, and almond extract and pulse just 2-3 times. Transfer the mixture to a bowl. Add the almonds and mix by hand only until the dough comes together in a ball. Form small crescents. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake about 20 minutes, until just golden. Do not allow the cookies to get dark, or they will toughen. Sift some powdered sugar, using a small strainer, over the cookies while still warm.
Store at room temperature in an airtight cookie tin.
Yield: Makes about 3 dozen.
