Valentine’s Day Iced Heart Cookies (AIP Paleo friendly)

Valentines Day AIP Cutout Heart Cookies
Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and with it hopefully some wonderful Spring weather!

We all want to feel a little extra special on Valentine’s Day! I happen to like cookies!

Iced Valentines Day Cookies

I also like icing on cookies, especially when they are big heart shaped ones that I can add a splash of natural pink icing to for Valentine’s Day!

AIP Valentines Day Cookies

This is a small batch of six cookies that are a little bigger than average. I made them with all natural ingredients free of many allergens, including no eggs, nuts, dairy, gluten or grains. They are AIP Paleo friendly!Trio of Iced Valentines Day Cookies

They have a crunchy texture and a toasted nut like flavor without nuts!

Valentine’s Day Iced Heart Cookies

Preheat your oven to 350° F.

Ingredients:

1/2 Cup of Coconut Flour

1/4 Cup of Avocado Oil

1/4 Cup of Shredded Unsweetened Coconut

3 Tablespoons of Coconut Butter

3 Tablespoons of Honey

2 Tablespoons of Coconut Sugar

1 Tablespoon of Grass Fed Gelatin

1 Tablespoon of Arrowroot

1/4 Teaspoon of Sea Salt

1/4 Teaspoon of Baking Soda

1/4 Teaspoon of Cream of Tartar

1/8 Teaspoon of Vanilla Powder

Directions:

In a medium mixing bowl with a hand held mixer, beat your gelatin into the avocado oil. Add the coconut sugar, coconut butter (softened in the microwave for about ten seconds) and honey. Beat until creamy and smooth.

Next add in the coconut flour, arrowroot, vanilla powder, salt, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Beat well. Finally, add in the shredded coconut, and beat until incorporated. The dough will resemble crumbs. Dump the dough out onto a parchment sheet, and form a ball. Press the ball flat, and add a second sheet of parchment on top so you can roll out the dough without it sticking to your rolling pin. Roll the dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Use a heart shaped cookie cutter to cut out the cookies. I used a 3 3/4″ Wilton cookie cutter which made 6 cookies.

Cutting Out Heart Valentines Day Cookies

Carefully move the cookies to a parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake for approximately ten minutes until the cookies are brown on the edges. Remove from the oven and cool completely on the cookie sheet. Don’t attempt to move the cookies until they are cool, or they will break. Once cooled they are sturdy.

Make the icing

Ingredients:

1/4 Cup of Organic Shortening

2 Teaspoons of Honey

1/2 Teaspoon of Beet Powder (I used this)

Beat the ingredients together and spread a heart shape onto your cooled cookies leaving a 1/2 boarder all around.

Makes 6

Happy Valentine’s Day!
