“Oatmeal” Currant Cookies

Posted Mar 03 2013 10:22pm

Oh.My.Goodness.

I haven’t baked in over two months thanks to the Whole30 Challenge and can I just say what an eye opener that was for me?! I didn’t realize the amount of baked goods in my diet until I took them out. It has felt sooo good to back off fruit and baked stuff. I even found the coconut flour gives me the worst tummy ache ever!!

However, this morning, I was just craving something sweet and delicious. So, I perused some recipe sites and modified one to fit what I needed. And boy was it worth it!

“Oatmeal” Currant Cookies

Makes about 12 little guys

Ingredients:

2 cups almond flour (a little course is good)

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

Pinch of salt

Truvia (I used one packet)

1/3 cup clarified butter, ghee, pastured butter or coconut oil

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 tablespoon heavy cream or full fat coconut milk

1/3 cup currants (or whatever you want to put in there)

Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 350. Grease cookie sheet.

In large mixing bowl, mix everything together. Sample dough to make sure you have enough sweetener (just don’t do what I did and eat half the batch). Use a tablespoon to measure out dough and roll into little ball. Press down slightly with hand or spatula to flatten a little. Not too much because these little guys are a little crumbly.

Bake for about 10 minutes and let cool before eating (or die trying). Enjoy!!
