Model Friendly Healthy “Sugar” Cookie
I am very much a cookie person.
I love cookies. As you probably can tell from here and here. And now I have a new favourite recipe. This one is probably the most healthiest batch of cookies I’ve ever baked for myself. It’s a sugar cookie that has absolutely no sugar. I’m sorry guys, you already know how I feel about it. But that doesn’t mean I can’t have cookies. That would just be plain ol’ cruel!
These soft cookies are grain free, soy free, gluten free, sugar free, wheat free, candida-friendly, vegan, preservative free and still good enough for Cookie Monster.
What you’ll need:
1/2 cup of organic coconut flour
1 tsp of baking soda
1/2 cup of granulated xylitol sweetener (XyloSweet is the best for this!)
3 tbsp of golden flax seed meal
1 tsp of raw apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup of organic virgin coconut oil (melted)
1 tsp of pure vanilla extract or powder (alcohol free)
1/2 cup of full fat coconut milk
Preheat oven to 350 F. Combine all of the “wet mix” ingredients in one bowl. Let stand for a few minutes so that flax meal and liquid create a sweetened “egg-like” goop. Sift together all of the “dry mix” into another bowl. Combine both mixes together and blend until well mixed. Roll out dough onto parchment paper and use your hands to form dough into balls. If it’s not sticking together properly, add a tiny bit more coconut oil. Cut into desired shapes or press down on dough balls with hands for regular shaped cookies. You can sprinkle some more granulated xylitol on top if you wish! Place cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. These will come out really soft so be careful. Let cool for a few minutes before devouring with some almond milk!
