Deprived! Sad! Frustrated! These are not words I have EVER used to describe my food. Since I was old enough to help in the kitchen, food has blessed my life. But, since following the LEAP food sensitivity diet my “food life” is a baby short list of foods I can eat. This quick 3 ingredient recipe (who counts salt as an ingredient) is perfect for your gluten free sweet tooth. It actually saved my soul. Before I could introduce untested foods I baked these delicious little gems every other week and ate them sparingly. The world became a better place when my Registered Dietitian sister Laurie sent me this recipe. And, I know Gary would tell you I was easier to live with too!
Laurie created this recipe for herself and her clients who have grain allergies and for her clients who are following the Paleo diet.
1 cup unsweetened almond butter or sunflower seed butter*
3/4 cup cane sugar or honey
1 egg, beaten
1/2 tsp. salt
Preheat oven to 350 F°.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
Scoop tablespoon of dough onto parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake 8-12 minutes, or until begin to brown on bottom (depends on size and oven).
Yield: About 20 cookies ( I make them smaller and get about 30 to 34 cookies)
*I loved the almond butter flavor better and used sugar instead of honey.
You can substitute peanut butter for the almond butter.
