Welcome to Day 9 of our Paleo 12 Days of Christmas! Want to see the other recipes so far? Check on my Facebook page or hang tight until Day 12 when I’ll have a round-up of all 12 recipes! Up today, my Reindeer Bombs!
You may recognize these ingredients from my Coconut Sugar Snickerdoodle Bombs. Except these are even better. But I have to give credit to my friend Kelly over at A Girl Worth Saving for coming up with the awesome name!
Recipe: Reindeer Bombs (makes about 15 large 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
a couple homemade marshmallows (or your favorite marshmallows), cut into small pieces
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 a couple tablespoons of the dough, roll into a ball, then flatten enough to put a small piece of marshmallow in the middle:
Roll the dough around the marshmallow, and then roll in the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Place on baking sheet and bake for 10-11 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack for a few minutes before eating!
