Coconut Sugar Gf Cookies

This is not one of our normal super healthy recipes but sometimes you need a treat and this is the healthiest you’re going to get!

Makes roughly 36 cookies depending on the cutter size. You can easily halve this recipe.

Ingredients - 1 cup unsalted butter (butter must be softened, but not melted. - 3/4 cup coconut sugar - 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract - 1 egg - 1/2 cup tapioca flour

- 1.5 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour I like the Woolworths home brand one.

- 1/2 cup almond meal

- 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum (leave out if your flour already has it)

- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

- Extra tapioca flour for rolling out.



Method

  • In a large bowl cream the butter and coconut sugar together with a mixer until butter turns white and sugar is nearly dissolved.

  • Beat in the egg and vanilla, beat for another few minutes.

  • In a medium bowl add the gluten-free flour, tapioca flour, almond meal, xanthan gum and baking powder and stir to blend ingredients.

  • Slowly pour flour mixture into the batter and mix until fully combined. The cookie dough will be like very soft play dough.

  • Cover cookie dough and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 180°.

  • Sprinkle some tapioca on top of a silicon mat or some baking paper. Roll the dough onto to about 1cm thickness. (I thus in a few batches to make it easier.)

  • Bake for 10 minutes or until the edges are very lightly browned. Please watch your cookies because all ovens are different.

  • Allow cookies to completely cool before icing. I used royal icing, not very

healthy. They were actually tastier without icing!
