Grain-Free Coconut Cookies

Posted Oct 22 2011 6:39pm

I don’t do well with grains.  In fact, because of their effect on my digestion, I pretty much avoid them entirely… (except for my long-standing vice:  tortilla chips).  The reason for my disharmony with grains could be due to my IBS, celiac disease, or my ancestral ‘O’ blood type .  Whatever the cause, over the years I have learned that I feel better if I limit or omit them entirely.  For some more information on nutrition-typing, you can take a free test on Dr. Mercola’s website .

These cookies are a recipe that my carb-loving toddler and husband love!  I’ve realized that it’s easy for kids to end up with diets heavy in grains, sugar, and carbohydrates if you don’t make conscious choices to add in high quality fats and proteins.  To make these cookies specific carbohydrate diet compliant, you can substitute raw honey for the evaporated cane juice and leave out one (or both) of the bananas.  I will work on adding more grain-free, SCD, GAPS -friendly and anti-candida ( Natalia Rose’s Detox for Women ) recipes to this site.  I love any excuse to add more coconut oil to my diet.  Not only is it delicious and bakes superbly, but the medium chain fatty acids support thyroid function and aid in metabolism. Yummy.

Here is the recipe:

Combine ingredients in food processor.  You may need to warm the coconut oil first if it’s too solid.  Process until well combined- you don’t need to worry about over-mixing. Grease baking sheet with extra coconut oil.  Drop by the spoonful.  Cookies won’t spread while baking, so avoid making them too high or the centers won’t cook all the way.  Bake in a 350 oven (325 convection) for 10-12 minutes.
