Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350º degrees F.

Lay out a parchment lined cookie sheet.

Ingredients:

1 3/4 Cups Superfine Almond Flour

2 Tablespoons Coconut Flour

1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda

1/4 Teaspoon Himalayan Pink Salt

1 Teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice

1/3 Cup Pumpkin Puree, SCD Legal

1 Egg

3 Tablespoons Clear Honey

1 Teaspoon pure Vanilla Extract

Directions: In a medium bowl, whisk together the first five dry ingredients. In a separate small bowl, with a hand held electric mixer, mix the wet ingredients together….the pumpkin puree, egg, honey and vanilla extract.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and mix until fully incorporated. With a 1/2 cup ice cream or cookie scoop, scoop the cookies onto your prepared cookie sheet. There should be six even sized scoops. Now, flatten into 3/4 inch thick circles with your hand, and then pinch the tops, patting and pinching to make the stem.

Bake in your preheated oven for 16 – 20 minutes, rotating the pan end to end after ten minutes. Keep an eye on them the last five minutes. The edges should be starting to brown, but not the centers.

Remove from the oven and cool completely while you make the frosting.

For the frosting:

Ingredients:

3 Tablespoons of Organic Shortening

3 Tablespoons of Honey

1 Tablespoon of Cacao Powder

In a small bowl with a hand held electric mixer, blend the shortening and honey together until it is whipped nicely.

Take a plastic sandwich bag and snip off one end. Insert a metal round piping tip into the snipped end. Scoop out two tablespoons of the white frosting from your bowl, and place it in the snipped bag. Twist the top moving the icing toward the piping tip. Set aside.

To the remaining frosting still in the bowl, add one tablespoon of cocao powder. Blend with your electric mixer.

Spread the chocolate frosting onto each cookie evenly, except the stems. Pipe the frosting on for the eyes and mouth.

It makes six large cookies. Yes, I know the picture shows five cookies. That’s because I ate one! 🙂

Happy Halloween! Boo!

Good Morning Everyone! I am so happy Summer is here! It is so relaxing having the kids out of school and having extended hours of daylight! We are spending time in Northern Michigan this Summer, and it is staying light until ten p.m. I love this time of year! I get so much fresh air because I am outdoors a lot more!

This is the Cherry Capital of the world, so what better time to make some Cherry Lemon Biscotti cookies to dunk in a cup of delicious coffee or tea?

Preheat your oven to 350º degrees. Lay out a parchment lined cookie sheet.

2 1/2 Cups Superfine Almond Flour

1 Tablespoon of Coconut Flour

Zest of 1 Lemon

1/2 Teaspoon of Baking Soda

1/4 Teaspoon of Sea Salt

1/3 Cup Good Honey

1 Tablespoon of Fresh Lemon Juice

1 Teaspoon of Pure Vanilla Extract

1/3 Cup of Dried Tart Cherries

Directions:

Sift together your dry ingredients in a medium to large bowl. In a separate bowl with an electric hand-held mixer, blend your wet ingredients. (The cherries are last, so don’t add them yet).

Mound the dough onto your prepared, parchment lined baking sheet. With wet hands, form the dough into a 1 1/2 inch high rectangle like this:

It looks fancy with the cookie cutter design on the top, but it disappeared during baking, so no need to do this! 🙂

Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool for 30 minutes on the cookie sheet.

With a serrated bread knife slice the biscotti on a diagonal, starting at a short corner. Make the slices approximately an inch thick. If some fall apart or break, at this point you can pat them back together. Lay cut side down back on the cookie sheet. Bake for seven minutes on one side, then remove from the oven and flip them to the other cut side and bake 5 more minutes. Remove from the oven and cool completely.

Enjoy these sweet and tart lovelies!

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!

Thin and Chewy Maple Sugar Cookies

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.

Paleo Pizzelle Cookies

I am delighted to have created a Grain Free version of one of my favorite cookies…..Pizzelles!

Pizzelle Cookies Paleo Style!

Pizzelle Cookies Paleo Style!

 

The first time I had these was when I was a child, and I was not gluten free. We had a neighbor from Italy, and his mother came over from “the old country” for a visit and brought her pizzelle maker with her. I was wowed by the cookie! They are delicately crispy and have an intricate pattern. I had never had anything like them, and my own mother started making them every year for the holidays.

Every year at Christmas since having to give up grains, I have missed these cookies! Whether you are gluten and grain free or not, I think you will love them! You do need a special pizzelle maker that you can find here. But it is a great addition to you kitchen if you love cookies!

Paleo Pizzelle Cookies

Preheat your pizzelle maker by plugging it in while you mix up the cookies.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 Cups Super Fine Almond Flour

1/4 Cup Tapioca Starch

1/4 Cup Maple Sugar

2 Tablespoons Arrowroot Flour

2 Tablespoons of Organic Shortening

1/2 Teaspoon Ground Anise (Omit for a Vanilla Pizzelle)

2 Eggs

1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

1/4 Teaspoon Sea Salt

Directions: Mix the almond flour, tapioca starch, maple sugar, arrowroot, anise and sea salt together in a medium bowl with a whisk. In a seperate bowl whisk together the eggs, melted shortening and vanilla extract. With an hand held electric mixer, blend the wet ingredients into the dry until it holds together and is thoroughly blended.

With a tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop balls of dough onto the pizelle maker, like this:

Close the hot pizzelle maker, and press the dough firmly to spread it. Set a timer for two minutes, when the timer is done open the press gently, and remove the cookies with the tines of a fork to loosen them from the press carefully. If the press doesn’t easily open, wait a few more seconds. Cool on a wire rack, and repeat until all the cookies are made.

Sour Cherry and Honey Shortbread Cookies

Warning! It is hard not to eat the whole batch of these! The good news is they are delicious, and it is a small batch.

These cookies are an absolutely delicious shortbread cookie treat recipe with the chewy tart bite of cherries!

They are delicate little bites with simple, whole food ingredients that come together in ten minutes.

Sour Cherry & Honey Cookies 5

The recipe makes a small batch of eleven cookies. Just short of a dozen. I have made the recipe several times to perfect it, and eleven is the perfect number.

I have this Moon Cake Mold Press that I used to imprint the tops of the cookies with a rose, but it isn’t necessary to make these cookies. I use it to make gluten free mooncakes during the Autumn Moon Celebration and have had great success with it for cookies. It just makes them fancier, and I am a gadget junkie.

The benefits touted in regards to cherries are they are anti-inflammatory, enhance sleep, help with post-workout soreness, reduce stroke risk and more. See this article on cherries if you want to learn more. I love all these benefits, but I especially love the taste of them, and all the benefits are a bonus!

Sour Cherry & Honey Cookies 7

Honey has trace minerals in it and is one of my favorite natural sweeteners. My father was a beekeeper, and I used to help him in the bee hives when I was a child. Honey is truly miraculous.  It is still a form of sugar to our bodies, but a little goes a long way! To make sure I know I am  getting a high quality, pure honey, I buy it from a local beekeeper or farm market where a beekeeper is selling their honey. Local food co-ops are another great place to find a reputable honey source.

Sour Cherry & Honey Cookies 8

This cookie recipe only has seven ingredients, and each one adds flavor.

Sour Cherry & Honey Cookies

Sour Cherry and Honey Tea Cookies

Preheat your oven to 325º degrees F.

Ingredients:

1 1/4 Cups Superfine Almond Flour

1/4 Cup Coconut Oil

1/4 Cup Sour (Tart) Dried Cherries (I used an organic cherry with no added ingredients, just cherries)

2 Tablespoons of Local Honey

1 Teaspoon of Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice

1/2 Teaspoon of Pure Vanilla Extract

1/4 Teaspoon of Himalayan Pink or Sea Salt

Directions: Place all the ingredients into a food processor. Pulse until all the ingredients are incorporated and holding together with the cherries in small bits, but not completely pureed into the dough. You should still see bits of nice sized, but not whole, cherries.

Scoop the dough with a tablespoon cookie scoop onto a parchment lined baking sheet, spacing the cookies two inches apart. Press the cookie with a round of the moon cake press or use fork tines to flatten the cookie to an inch thickness.

Bake in the preheated oven for just 9 minutes until the cookies are starting to brown on the edges. Cool completely.

Ultimate Grain Free Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies

I don’t know about you, but I need a treat now and then. When I have something decadent, I wan’t it to be something that I have been craving made in a healthier way than I used to eat it. Lately, I have really missed chocolate chip cookies. I added pecans to this recipe, since I am a nut and cookie fan, but you do’t need to add nuts if you are in the nut free cookie camp. I think our household is 50/50 in our preference  to add or not to add nuts.

Although this is not a low sugar recipe, I have used honey to sweeten them, which makes them chewy. The chocolate chips are Lily’s Dark Chocolate No Sugar Added Chocolate Chips sweetened with Stevia. I buy them at my local coop, or they can be found here.

Almond Tahini Grain Free Cookies

Monday mornings are notorious for being difficult! Do you ever struggle with Mondays? Maybe you had a crazy weekend like me, or it was a super fun weekend, and you don’t like the thought of getting back to the grind. Or, maybe the whole week stretching ahead of you feels overwhelming! Usually Mondays are okay for me, but last week was a crazy, busy week. I was just getting back from traveling and running like crazy to catch up on a short week, and then Sunday morning, just when I was getting in the shower, the lights went out for a couple hours, and I had the perfect to do list in my head for the perfect day, starting with church.

So, what can you do on days when you just want to get through it? Should we just get through it? I recommend finding just ten minutes to savor a moment. You can find just ten minutes. Giving yourself ten minutes to just be and breathe works really well to change your frame of mind and calm your spirit.

So my next thought is, if we are dreading a day like the infamous Monday, can we change our day by changing how we think about it? I believe the answer is “Yes. Yes we can! Not that it is easy, but we can do it!”.

Enough of my musings. Since baking is therapy for me, and cookies are definitely on my list of mood boosters, today I have a delicious, grain free, brand new cookie recipe for you (and me). They are full of clean ingredients, and one or two of these will not set you back in your health goals. They also don’t take long to mix up. You will need a bowl and a fork. Here’s the recipe:

Apple Pie “Oatmeal” Cookies

These cookies are my latest obsession! They are grain free, but have the texture of a soft oatmeal cookie and the flavor of apple pie! They are also egg free, dairy free, have no added sugar, and are packed with nutrition from apples, walnuts, dates, currants and healthy fat! I also think these cookies rock because, if your child wakes up and asks, “Mom, can I have a cookie for breakfast?”, like mine have done, you can say “Yes” to these cookies. There is something about putting wholesome ingredients together in cookie form that makes kids really love to eat them………….me too!

Let’s bake some cookies!

Apple Pie “Oatmeal” Cookies

Ingredients:

3 Cups Diced Granny Smith Apples, cored peel left on

8 Medjool Dates, pitted

1/2 Cup Very Warm Water

1 Cup Raw Walnut Halves

1/2 Cup Shredded Coconut, Unsweetened like this

1/2 Cup Dried Currants

1/4 Cup Coconut Oil

1 1/2 Tablespoons Ground Cinnamon

1/4 Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg

1 Tablespoon Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice

1 Tablespoon Pure Vanilla Extract, no additives like this

1/2 Teaspoon Himalayan Pink Salt or Sea Salt

1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda

Directions:

Preheat your oven 350º degrees. Set out two cookie sheets covered in parchment paper.

Place your pitted dates in the 1/2 cup of very warm water and soak for ten minutes to soften. Meanwhile, in a food processor, place your chopped apples and lemon juice. Pulse until they are finely chopped. Drain your soaked dates, and add to the food processor along with the vanilla extract and coconut oil. Continue to pulse. When mostly smooth, add the remaining ingredients except the currants and walnuts. Puree until smooth, about one minute. Finally, add your currants and walnuts and pulse until the walnuts are coarsely chopped, about six pulses should do it.

Using a tablespoon cookie scoop, make rounded mounds of cookie dough on the parchment lined cookie sheets, twelve cookies per sheet. Using a fork, flatten cookie dough mounds to about 3/4″ inch thick.

Rum Print Cookies

Instead of visions of sugarplums dancing through my head, I have rum prints on my mind. What in the world is a rumprint? I found a recipe quite a few years ago in a holiday magazine. The cookies were very unique and  memorable. I have never found another quite like them. Unfortunately,  I lost the magazine at some point in a move I made. So, here is a replication from my memory of what they were like. These have been Paleo-ized, and I have to say, they are as good as I remember. The cookie base uses finely ground walnuts, and the frosting uses cocoa butter for creaminess and stability.

Rum Print Cookies

Rum Print Cookies

Ingredients for Cookie:

1 Cup of Walnuts (finely ground) I used a mini Ninja to do this (see Kitchen Equipment I Love)

1/4 Cup Coconut Flour

1/4 Cup Organic Palm Shortening

1/4 Cup Clear Clover Honey

1 Egg

1/4 Teaspoon Pink Himalayan or Sea Salt

1/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda

1 Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg

1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract (SCD Legal)

Directions: Preheat oven 350º degrees. With an electric hand held mixer, cream together the shortening and honey. Add the egg and continue to beat for one minute. Add the vanilla extract and incorporate. In a small bowl whisk together the finely ground walnuts, coconut flour, salt, nutmeg and baking soda. Add to the wet ingredients and mix on medium speed until blended. With a tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop the dough onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake 11 minutes.

When the cookies come out of the oven, using your thumb, make an indentation in the top of each cookie for the thumprint. Cool completely.

Frosting Ingredients:

1 Cup Raw Cocoa Butter, Chopped (See In My Pantry for Resources)

1/4 Cup Clover Honey

2 Tablespoons Organic Palm Shortening

4 Teaspoons White Rum

1/8 Teaspoon Himalayan Pink or Sea Salt

Nutmeg for Sprinkling

Directions: In a double broiler, melt the cocoa butter. Remove from heat and add into a bowl. With an electric hand held mixer, beat the honey, salt and shortening into the cocoa butter. Add the rum and continue beating until the frosting is solidifying. The cocoa butter will start out clear when hot and become a white consistency as it cools. When it is a good texture for piping, place the frosting in a piping bag with a large star tip and pipe into the center of the cooled cookies. It sets up quickly, so pipe right away. Alternatively, you can scoop the frosting into the middle of the cookies by hand if you don’t feel like piping. Sprinkle each cookie with a dash of nutmeg.

They are a beautiful cookie!
