Gluten free coconut flax cookies

Postby drv » Fri Nov 21, 2014 3:46 am

I absolutely LOVE these cookies. They are thick and chewy and the coconut flour and the coconut itself add a very nice flavor.

Coconut adds iron, potassium and phosphorus as well as fiber to these cookies. When using coconut flour, be aware that coconut absorbs fluid like a sponge, so you may need to adjust the liquid. The ground flax is high in Lignans which helps to metabolize estrogen properly, which is important for cancer prevention and healing. Bon Appétit!

Mix the following dry ingredients together:
1 cup almond flour
1 cup coconut flour
1 cup organic shredded coconut
1 cup ground flax seeds
1 cup organic cranberries
½ cup xylitol. (You can also use Stevia. Add the amount of Stevia that satisfies your sweet palate)
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg

In a small bowl, whisk the following together:
3 free range organic eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
½ cup of coconut oil or grape seed oil.
If needed, you can add ¼ cup almond milk or water

Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix thoroughly.

Shape the dough into 1 inch balls and gently press with a wet fork to flatten.

Bake at 350 F for 7-10 minutes or until golden brown. Enjoy!
