Soft and chewy almond butter cookies that are gluten free, sugar free and are made with coconut flour, pastured eggs and a few other amazing approved ingredients. These cookies are satisfying and packed with protein. They are super easy and only contain 10 "approved" ingredients and can be quickly mixed with either a small hand mixer or you can even get away with stirring them together with a fork.
KITCHEN ITEMS YOU'LL NEED
Parchment paper (avoid the white bleached type to avoid toxins)
Fork to make the indent in cookies
2/3 cup coconut flour
1 cup / organic almond butter (no added sugar)
4 pastured eggs large
2 teaspoons 100% pure monk fruit (with NO erythritol. Erythritol is made from corn and corn is to be avoided on a mold diet)
1/4 cup raw unpasteurized honey (If you want no honey, add an additional 1/2 tsp of monk fruit sweetener)
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons of fresh squeezed organic lemon juice
1 tsp 100% pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp of Celtic sea salt or Himalayan pink salt.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Put all ingredients in a bowl and stir together with a hand mixer until a smooth dough forms in the bowl. Use either a small cookie dough scoop (which is what I use to get even-sized cookies), or your hands to roll them into 1"-sized balls. The dough will be a little sticky.
Make about 16-18 and roll into balls. Wet your hands again if needed. Place each one on a stainless steel baking sheet OR a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
Flatten each cookie dough ball into 1 cm thick / 5 cm diameter disks using a fork, making a crisscross pattern.
Bake cookies for 8 - 10 minutes (pull them out at 8 minutes to check and see if they are done..if not let them bake for an additional 1-2 minutes.) Remove them from the oven and then let them cool completely before eating otherwise they will fall apart.
Remember the goal during the PhazeMoldDiet is to keep your sugar consumption to a minimum to starve out candida and fungus in the body. Candida and fungi use glucose in all forms to grow and maintain their colonies. By using monkfruit or raw honey we are minimizing it's "food source".
Not sweet enough?
Some of you might really be hankering on this one but if you really must, I suggest doing a tiny drizzle of raw honey on top (and I mean small). ;)
