Grainless Cookies

Here is a delicious cookie recipe that we use pretty regularly at the Ernst household. In fact, the included photo is a batch we made at home! It’s grain-free and has only a bit of sugar from the raw honey (that is made up for and then some) with the many benefits of raw honey. So please enjoy, because in most families, a recipe like this would be a closely-guarded secret.

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup softened coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 Tbsp organic apple sauce
  • 3/4 cup cassava flour
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 cup cocao nibs

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and grease a large cookie sheet with coconut oil.

  3. Add the cassava flour, baking powder, and salt and mix well.
  4. Fold in the chocolate nibs.
  5. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto the baking sheet and flatten out a bit.
