Thin and Chewy Maple Sugar Cookies


Thin, Chewy Cookies are one of my favorites! I like all kinds of textures in cookies…..Cakey, Crunchy, Thick, Thin, Puffy…..those are just some of the variety of textures cookies can have. Then there is the shape! When you think about it, cookie possibilities are endless, thus the huge number of cookbooks dedicated to cookies alone.

Really, the types of cookies you choose to make, when in the mood, also depends on what kind of time you want to put into them and the level of creativity you are feeling. These cookies are fast and satisfying, pretty, chewy, and sweet with maple sugar and honey. The honey makes them chewy!

The Thin & Chewy Maple Sugar Cookies also have coconut oil in them, for some good fat, and I used tigernut flour, which is one of my new favorites! Tigernut flour contains some protein, fiber, and resistant starch making it a natural prebiotic to feed good gut flora. It also gives baked items stability and structure. It is not a nut at all! It is an ancient root vegetable! You can find it here.

Thin & Chewy Maple Sugar Cookies

Preheat your oven to 350º degrees.

Ingredients:

1/2 Cup Tapioca Flour

1/2 Cup Tigernut Flour

1/4 Cup Maple Sugar, plus extra for rolling

1 Tablespoon Arrowroot Flour

1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder (corn and aluminum free recipe here at Whole New Mom)

1/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda

1/4 Teaspoon Sea Salt

1/4 Cup Honey

1/4 Cup Coconut Oil

1 Tsp. Vanilla Extract (alcohol free for AIP Paleo)

Directions: Mix together the dry ingredients in a medium bowl with a whisk.

With an electric hand-held mixer, beat in the coconut oil until crumbly. Add the honey and vanilla and blend thoroughly. Scoop balls of dough onto a parchement lined baking sheet with a tablespoon cookie scoop. Roll the balls between your hands and then into extra maple sugar to coat. Space 2 generous inches apart onto two cookie sheets lined with parchment.

Bake in your preheated oven 11 to 14 minutes until golden. They will spread, so leave space between the cookies.
