Primal Shortbread Cookies
Primal Shortbread Cookies - Primal, Kid Friendly and Clean Eating
It may just be an English thing but Christmas doesn't feel like Christmas without shortbread. Traditional shortbread is made with sugar and flour which we now don't eat, so the question for a while has been how do we have shortbread now?
The answer is coconuts; I am of the belief that coconut can do pretty much anything, including saving Christmas.
This shortbread is a clean eating alternative to the traditional shortbread but delivers the creamy and crumbly texture that melts in your mouth.
1/3 cup coconut flour
1 tbsp. Maple syrup
¼ tsp. Vanilla powder
3 tbsp. butter
Optional - chocolate chips to top the cookies
Preheat then oven to 180 degrees C/ 350 degrees F.
Line a baking sheet with baking paper.
In a large bowl rub together the butter and flour with your hands to create a breadcrumb texture.
Add the maple syrup and vanilla to the butter and flour mixture and mix everything together to form a dough.
Divide the dough into eight balls and place them on the baking sheet.
Press down each of the balls with the back of a fork.
Bake the cookies for 6 to 8 minutes, when they are golden brown, they are ready.
Set the cookies to one side to cool on the baking sheet.
