Recipe: Gluten-free Almond Butter Cookies
You never know when you might need a gluten-free recipe for a friend or a family member who is dropping by in half an hour for a quick visit. Or just a small batch of quick cookies that takes only 15 minutes. This is one of my recipes in the Holistic Weight Management - Fat loss program. I wanted to share because it is a guilt-free recipe that you can bring with you for you shopping snack or to a friends house. I have a few friends that suffer with celiac disease and I don't want them to miss out on a great cookie. The fat releasers in this recipe are nut butters and eggs. Of course, I explain all about food that are fat releasers in the program. It is true, you can eat more and lose fat.
¼ cup + 1 tbsp. almond butter (I get my almond butter freshly ground at the store)
2 tbsp. sugar alternative (I use coconut sugar as it has fibre, minerals and lower on Glycemic Index)
1 egg white (2 tbsp.)
¼ tsp. baking powder
Preheat oven to 300°F and line cookie sheet with parchment paper. You could also use a small amount of coconut oil instead of parchment paper to spread over the cookie sheet.
Combine almond butter, sugar alternative, egg white, and baking powder in medium bowl; blend until smooth.
Drop dough into 6 equal portions on cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Cookies should be slightly puffed and golden on the bottom.
It is that quick and easy! Enjoy and don't forget to share.
