I love a good cookie! Or 5 …in fact cookies have been a part of my morning tea ritual for as long as I can remember. So when I realized I had to go sugar-free two years ago, this was my hardest habit to kick. I struggled with not detouring into the grocery store to buy a pack of cookies daily. I gave in about 4 times a week, bought and ate a pack while driving.

It wasn’t working. I had no willpower. So, I decided to do the next best thing, not deprive myself but find a satisfying alternative. I started experimenting and came up with yummy variations that were all gluten, dairy and sugar-free! Here’s one that I love because it takes 10 minutes to make and is full of protein and healthy fats. Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 cup organic creamy almond butter (buy my fav here)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • Lakanto sweetener or Stevia to taste (I used 1 teaspoon of Lakanto)
  • Variation: add melted chocolate or cocoa paste for a denser richer taste or use chocolate almond butter

RECIPE

Step 1: Gather the ingredients.

I only use eggs from a local lady who has chickens in her backyard! I actually know these chickens and watch them peck around the garden when I go to get freshly laid eggs. Find a local cage-free egg source, it’s so worth it!

My favorite Almond butter comes from Philosophers Stone, as its sprouted and stone ground in addition to being organic. Is there a taste difference? YOU BET! It’s so much creamier and tastier than any other organic almond butter. I tend to binge eat it raw, its that good! They also have a chocolate almond butter which I use to make the chocolate version of these cookies.

My favorite Vanilla is this organic vanilla as it has a richer flavor to it that doesn’t seem to evaporate as much as the others I have tried.

Between Lokanto and Stevia, I am always a little torn. Lokanto tastes wayyyy better but it always has Erythritol mixed in which I prefer not to ingest. Stevia green leaf just doesn’t bake the same and it’s an acquired taste which, after 15 months, tastes like sugar to me. So its a decision I make at the moment of blending – what do I feel like today, Lokanto or Stevia?!

Step 2: Combine egg, almond butter, baking soda, vanilla and lokanto/stevia in a bowl
Just put all the ingredients into a small mixing blow, right on top of each other!

 Step 3: Blend really well with a fork till smooth, then scoop with a spoon onto an oiled baking sheet

 Step 4: Bake in a 300 degree pre-heated oven for about 10 minutes or till done! Enjoy with your favorite cup of tea!
Some ovens bake hot and fast, so keep an eye on them. You want to take them out when they are still soft but firm. Try not to overbake or the texture gets chewy, which if you like, maybe just fine for you!

Eating a treat can be so healthy and easy! Please share with loved ones if you like the recipe. Tried it? Share your results!!!
