Simple Cookies to Make and Freeze
Paleo desserts are so delicious. However, we need a word of caution. I need one too! We can’t think just because they are Paleo that we can eat our fill of them. Balance is such an important word to remember.
During my past year journey of eating Fabufit Paleo, I have enjoyed the Paleo desserts so much; eating them only once and awhile on months I was really working on dropping inches, and a bit more on months I was establishing my new “Set Point” and not really focusing on any new inch losses. Personally, this has worked well for me. Of course, I do combine the eating lifestyle with consistent exercise.
Making some simple cookies and freezing them will help the “sweet tooth”. The Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies are also delicious frozen. Be sure to place a piece of wax paper between each to make them easy to take out just one or two at a time.
I Discovered these Snickerdoodles in Elana’s Cookbook
2 1/2 cups blanched almond flour
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup arrowroot powder
6 tablespoons coconut oil (My choice – Elana uses Grapeseed oil)
1/2 cup agave nectar
2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
Ground cinnamon to sprinkle on top
How to Make
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare two cookie sheets by lining them with parchment paper.
Combine the dry ingredients except for the cinnamon in a large bowl.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients.
Stir the wet into the dry until thoroughly combined. Spoon this dough one tablespoon at a time onto the parchment paper. Using two spoons is easier for me to work with. One to dip it up and one to scoop it onto the paper. Now press down with the palm of your hand to flatten. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
Bake 7 to 10 minutes. I suggest 7 minutes as they cook quickly. Cool cookies on their baking sheet 30 minutes. Elana suggests letting these cool on the counter overnight and then storing them in airtight container. They were much better after being on counter overnight.
Our grandchildren seem to like these ever more than the Chocolate Chip ones.
I’d love to know which ones you like best.
