Some of you may have seen my post on Facebook when I shared that our Costco is now selling coconut sugar. I think I have baked with it before in the past, but I don’t remember. I prefer to bake with pure maple syrup or raw honey, as they are less processed, but I also like to experiment occasionally with other products. So, here is a recipe I came up with that is absolutely delicious! They have a soft, chewy, center, and a bit of crispness on the outside. These would make great Christmas cookies!
Recipe: Coconut Sugar Snickerdoodle Bombs (makes about 2 dozen cookies)
2.5 cups almond flour
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
3 TBSP coconut sugar + 1 tsp cinnamon, mixed together, to roll cookies in
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Sift together the dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, coconut oil and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients until combined. Scoop out small portions, roll into a ball, and then roll in the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Place on baking sheet and bake for 9-11 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack for a few minutes before eating!
