foodie moment: gluten- free, no sugar cookies

Ok, so disclaimer… These cookies do not taste like the sugar cookies you buy from Publix. Haha.

But, they are a healthy option for sweet treat or an option for those who have food restrictions.

This recipe is gluten free and also sugar free!

The girls and I had fun making them on Valentines Day.

No-Sugar Cut Out Cookies

What you will need:

2.5 Cups of Almond Flour

1/2 teaspoon Himalayan Pink Salt (or Celtic Sea Salt)

1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda

1/2 Cup Coconut Oil (or you can use melted butter)

1 tablespoon Vanilla

1 cup of Xylitol

1 large egg

Beat together Oil, Vanilla, Egg, and Xylitol in separate bowl.

Then, mix almond flour, salt, baking soda together.

Bake the cookies at 350 degrees until brown on the edges. Let them cool.

While they are cooling, you can make the frosting.

What you will need:

4 tablespoons of agave nectar

3 tablespoons of heaving whipping cream.

Combine cream cheese and agave in medium bowl until well blended.

Then whip in heavy cream until frosting is thick and creamy.

As you can see here, Kira was even sampling it a bit (the evidence on her face).
