These naturally gluten-free and protein-packed. Not to mention, very low in sugar too. As the name Amaretti Cookies goes, its no rocket science to know that, these Chewy Almond Cookies come from Italy. If you have been to Italy and haven’t tried these then you definitely missed out.

I kept them low sugar by not rolling the cookies in powdered sugar as the original recipe calls for.
