|A gluten-free tea party for two: the best kind of morning|
This cookie literally melts in your mouth. The texture is that like of a peanut butter cookie, while the taste is reminiscent of a buttery sugar cookie, only healthier (thank gosh!) It doesn't have a strong flavor, just a mild vanilla-y maple sweetness, enhanced by the natural sweetness of coconut flour and unsweetened coconut milk.
Coconut "Butter" Cookies
1-1/2 cups coconut flour
1-1/2 TBSP garbanzo bean flour (any GF flour will do)
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1-1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1/3 cup agave syrup or maple syrup or honey**
1/3 cup melted coconut oil
1/2 cup plain coconut yogurt
3 eggs or egg equivalents
|vanilla my twin brought back from her trip to Seychelles for work|
|yummy discovery at Trader Joe's. I went a little light on the syrup, add more for more sweetness|
|Mix wet into dry, adding a little additional coconut milk or water if necessary|
1. Stir together flours, and add in all wet ingredients. Mix well.
2. Scoop out into little balls, flatten into discs and make an imprint of your choice. I used the tines of a fork to criss-cross the top of the cookie, and a cookie cutter on a few others.
3. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-9 minutes.
**I used maple-flavored agave syrup as sweetener: honey or regular agave or maple will do. I used a scant 1/3 cup.
|Bake only 8-10 minutes; they will remain soft and retain that melt-in-your-mouthness|
|Take a tray to your lawn with these healthy cookies and a spot of tea. Magical!|
