Sweet Almond Cookies
These cookies are so much like sugar cookies that you'd never know they were grain, sugar and starch free! I have another great recipe in my new book, the Ultimate Grain Free Cookbook, but if you haven't gotten around to purchasing it yet, (it makes a great Christmas gift:) , here's another one you'll really enjoy!
1/2 cup palm shortening
1/3 cup syrup sweetener of choice (I used VitaFiber IMO syrup)
1-1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
1 cup blanched almond flour
1/4 cup organic coconut flour
1 tablespoon konjac powder or 1 more tablespoon of coconut flour
1/2-2/3 t pure monk fruit powder/liquid drops or stevia
pinch of sea salt
1. Use your hand held mixer to mix everything together until light and fluffy.
2. Drop by tablespoons onto a lined cookie sheet, or chill dough and roll out for cut-out cookies, or roll into a log shape and slice.
3. Sprinkle with granulated sweetener and bake at 350° for 8-11 minutes.
