Holiday cookies Grain-free, gluten free

IMG_5688

The holidays are here and it’s time to get baking! I love all the classic recipes, but I wanted to make something healthy that we can enjoy without the sugar coma and guilt.

I’ve  been baking with almond flour for awhile now, and it’s my favorite to make cookies with. It’s delicious and a healthy alternative to white flour. These cookies are gluten free, grain free, and packed with fiber and protein.

Bake them up this holiday season!

Makes about 2 dozen-preheat oven to 375

1 cup of coconut sugar
2 cups of fine almond flour
3 eggs at room temp
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tbsp cinnamon
4 tbsp Kerrygold butter ( you can also use 1/2 cup melted coconut oil)
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Mix the wet ingredients in a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Slowly add the dry into the wet, stirring with a spoon.

wrap the dough in a piece of parchment paper and put into a ziplock bag. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or over night.

Once the dough is nice and chilled, Place another piece of parchment on top of the dough, and roll them out. Use your favorite cookie cutters to cut out the cookies, or the top of a glass. Sprinkle extra coconut sugar and cinnamon on top!

Bake for about 10-15 mins until golden at the edges.

**this dough can also be kept in the freezer.
