Five years ago I made a huge change in my life and started eating a more whole food diet.
I cut out all processed foods and lowered my sugar intact considerably.
And not only did I go gluten free, but I went a step further and I no longer eat grains.
You can read my story here.
In 2012, I developed a grain-free cut-out sugar cookie recipe that I shared here on this blog.
Even though it was a huge deal to come up with such a recipe (and something I could eat!),
I wasn't entirely satisfied with the recipe.
Every time I made it, I knew I needed to go back to the drawing board and try again.
A few months ago, I did just that.
I developed a grain free cut-out sugar cookie that is much simpler and
doesn't require too many special ingredients.
This year I started an office manager position at a wellness chiropractic center.
I really believe in the things these folks are doing.....and wanted to develop
a grain-free cookie that I could share with them and their patients.
We had an open house and I brought the veggie tray. :)
These cookies were made with the grain free recipe I'm sharing here on this post.
Even though there is still sugar in the cookies, and my glaze is loaded with sugar,
I made a cookie that is a little more conducive to a healthier lifestyle.
Simple Grain-Free Cut-Out Sugar Cookies
3 cups blanched almond flour
1 cup arrowroot flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter
Combine sugar, butter, and egg.
Add the remaining dry ingredients.
Mix until it forms a firm dough.
(Add a small amount of water if dough is too dry.)
Roll out dough and cut shapes as usual.
Bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes or until the dough springs back when pressed.
Decorate cookies as usual.
