Holiday Treats: Gluten-Free Gingerbread Cookies
December is a month of cheer... and with that cheer, comes a lot of delicious treats. Unfortunately, these treats aren't always the most healthy. Alexandra Catalano (@eatcute), nutritionist and lifestyle expert, is sharing her twist on Gingerbread Cookies. They're gluten-free and guilt-free. Share them with your family this season!
What You'll Need:
2 cup Blanched Almond Flour
2/3 cup Arrowroot Flour, plus more for dusting
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp ground Cloves
1/2 tsp ground Cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground Nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground Ginger
1/4 cup Pure Maple Syrup
3 Tbsp Organic Coconut Oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine blanched almond flour, arrowroot flour, salt, baking soda, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Stir ingredients with a wooden spoon to combine well.
In a small saucepan, bring maple syrup to a boil over medium heat. Add coconut oil to the saucepan, and stir until combined. Remove saucepan from heat and pour into the dry ingredients.
Mix batter with a wooden spoon until you have formed a dark golden cookie dough, and all the dry ingredients are combined with the pure maple syrup and coconut oil.
Roll batter into small silver dollar sized balls, and form into circles for your gingerbread cookies.
Bake gingerbread at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on a cookie rack. Enjoy!
