Change begins where excuses end.

Making Cookies and Waiting for Santa

Here in the Bradley household we aren’t just waiting for Santa, we’re waiting for a baby too!  We’re expecting our first child in June so I’ve been focusing a lot on that  (and by focusing I mean I’ve been eating and sleeping my way through my first trimester).  As a testament to eating a primal diet; we were able to get pregnant on the first try and I’ve felt great for the last three months! (With the exception of 96 hours  during week 6 where I wondered what I’d gotten myself into).

But don’t worry, this article isn’t about pregnancy, it’s about COOKIES!  I know that got your attention.  On Friday night I went to a cookie exchange filled with sugary, sweet goodness.  I had a few cookies and spent the night tossing and turning and woke up with a belly ache.  Happy Holidays.  So this is what I have to look forward to for the Christmas season?  I think not, I can do better–so began my search for a healthy Christmas cookie.  This is the first recipe I’ll be sharing of many, I am sure.    Now that I’m out of my first trimester I can focus on more important things, like baking and blogging.

Coconut Cake Cookies

Dry Ingredients

  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • 1 cup almond, coconut, or moo cow milk
  • 1/2 c. melted butter
  1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine dry ingredients.
  3. Combine wet ingredients.
  4. Combine wet and dry ingredients.
  5. Grease a cookie sheet.
  6. Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup spoon the batter onto your cookie sheet.
  7. If you’re feeling festive, sprinkle sprinkles on your cookies (yes, I’m aware that sprinkles are pure sugar)
  8. Bake for 17 minutes (this is exact and important)

These cookies are cake-like, they remind me of cookies my grandmother used to make– light and fluffy.  Later in the week I will try making an icing to make sure they are nice and moist!
