Sugar-free, Grain-free “Sugar Cookies”

Happy May the Fourth Be With You!

I was gathering my brain for Starwarsy desserts and the stuff I came up with in my head required a lot of fondant. As I have yet to figure out how to come up with sugar-free fondant, I decided to put a pin in it, and move onto something a little healthier. So, sugar-free sugar cookies happened. Just a little warning that these sugar cookies do not taste like sugar cookies in that they are not super sweet. They remind me more of biscotti’s. I feel like these would be really good with coffee or tea. Or, even as the bread for ice cream sandwiches!

Recipe: (Makes about 10 cookies)

Ingredients: 

1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup coconut palm sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
1/4 cup melted butter
1 large egg

Frosting ingredients:

Dairy free cream cheese and spirulina.

Directions: 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. 
  2. Mix all the ingredients together. 
  3. Roll up into balls and flatten with your palms to desired thickness. 
  4. Use cookie cutters to cut out shapes or keep flattened. 
  5. Place on baking sheet and bake on middle rack for 8 minutes. 
  6. Allow to cool before decorating.

Frosting:

Mix desired amount of cream cheese with a pinch of spirulina. Add more for darker shade.
