Gluten-Free Protein-Rich Cuttable Cookies

Protein Rich Holiday Cookies-4

Oh, I found these cookies hidden in my archive from last Christmas. I ate them but forgot to share. However, for you, they don’t have to wait till the next Christmas to be in your cookie jars. Everyday should be celebrated with soft and warm sweet cookies.

These cookies are perfect for any occasion. Valentine’s Day is around the corner and I am thinking to bake some for Zara to share with her little friends.

Made with protein-rich almond flour, healthy fat coconut flour, and all natural sweeteners maple syrup and blackstrap molasses, these cookies are surprisingly nutritious while their flavors are delicious and gluten-free.

Leave me a comment if you get a chance to try them. Have a beautiful day!

Protein Rich Holiday Cookies-8

Gluten-Free Protein-Rich Cuttable Gingerbread

Serve: 16 cookies
Prep Time: 10 minutes + 30 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
1 1/4 cup blanched almond meal/flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp ground ginger
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp of salt
1/4 cup raw cane sugar
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp molasses
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 egg
Combine all of the ingredients in a medium bowl, and mix until a thick dough is formed. Form dough into a ball. Chill the dough for at least 30 minutes in the fridge, to make sure it’s nice and firm before scooping.
Preheat the oven to 350F degree. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Take dough out of the fridge. To make a round cookie, drop the dough by rounded tablespoons onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Use a wet fork to flatten each dough into desired cookie thickness. To use dough to cut shapes, roll dough, into desired thickness, with a rolling pin (I find it easy to roll without any sticking to rolling pin if lay a ceramic wrap on top of the batter) and use your choice of cookie cutter shape for the cookies.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, until firm around the edges or lightly golden brown, but still soft in the center.
Allow to cool in baking sheet for 10 minutes and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before serving.
