Real Healthy Cut-Out Cookies

Sugar cookies without the sugar!

Cookies! Cookies! Cookies!

There’s nothing in the world that will bring a smile to someone’s face quicker than handing them a homemade cookie.

Most cookies are a bittersweet affair — tasty and enjoyable on the lips but then headed straight for your hips.

These cookies, on the other hand, aren’t weighed down with refined sugar, gluten-filled flour or butter, making them nothing but sweet.

INGREDIENTS
Serves 28

  • 2½ cups blanched almond flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons ground flax meal
  • ⅓ cup coconut oil, melted over very low heat
  • ¼ cup agave nectar
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract
INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a baking sheet with coconut oil then set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl combine the almond flour, salt and flax. In another bowl combine the coconut oil, agave, vanilla and almond extracts.
  3. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ones and mix until fully combined. Form the dough into a large ball, then flatten it slightly. Wrap in plastic and store in the freezer for 1 hour.
  4. Remove the dough from freezer, place between 2 sheets of wax paper and use a rolling pin to flatten to ½ inch thickness. Use your favorite cookie cutter shapes to create cookies — dipping the cookie cutters in cold water before each use.
  5. Place cut-out cookies on prepared pan then bake for 7-10 minutes, until golden. Allow to cool on the pan for 1 hour.
