|Gluten Free goodness|
Somewhere around the first of the year I decided because of all the tummy troubles I was having that it was time to remove gluten and see if this helped me survive. So far it has eliminated about 80% of the problems. I suspect that dairy may also be a problem but I can't think about giving up cheese. I have switched to almond milk for my smoothies and rarely have anything else so I will suffer the cheese problems.
|They look like real cookies|
The brown look like real peanut butter cookies actually.
The cookies turned out good. Really good. My husband and kid devoured them good. I used coconut flour and almond flour in the batter and the coconut flour gave it a distinct coconut flavor. If you don't like coconut try rice flour or the flour mix you can find at the store.
So the recipe? First let me explain something. I know you are supposed to cream the butter and sugar and eggs and yada, yada, yada. I didn't. I literally threw everything in a bowl and turned on the mixer. It worked out just fine so you know, if you prefer to do things the right way, cream the butter, sugar, and eggs.

Let me know what you think if you try them. I am going to make some chocolate chip cookies next. I am debating on how to make those sugar free as well so stay tuned for my efforts.
