Ingredients used to make these Tofu Snowball Cookies
**I’ve linked some of these ingredients to amazon.com to give you an idea of what they are, but you should also be able to find them in your local grocery store (usually, the natural & organic food section). They are also affiliate links, which means that I earn a commission as an Amazon Associate if you decide to purchase the items. The price will be the same for you, link or no link 🙂
- Almond flour – I used blanched almond flour
- Raw Cane Sugar – usually I would recommend that you use coconut sugar, maple sugar or date sugar since they are less processed sugars, but I chose raw cane sugar because I wanted to keep the cookies light-colored. Feel free to use sugar-free options such as monk fruit sweetener or stevia (just be sure to convert according to package instructions).
Update: you can also use honey powder instead of sugar (but the recipe will no longer be vegan)Honey powder is basically de-hydrated honey that can be used instead of sugar for most recipes, and can be rehydrated with water
- Salt – Pink Himalayan salt is what I have at home, so it’s what I use, but you can use any kind for this recipe. Since I use only a small amount, the conversion (between kosher and fine salt, for example) isn’t necessary.
- Silken Tofu– (firm) like this one
