Dear cookie monsters past and present,
Rejoice, you can eat cookies! Just because you are on the healthy lifestyle train to infinity (I hope) this doesn't mean you can't enjoy an healthy indulgence now and again. These cookies are just that – healthy gourmet! While I don't recommend you eat 6 in one sitting, you can certainly enjoy a couple with a cup of tea!
If on the other hand, you are new to Joyous Helath, then you are going to appreciate that healthy can and should be delicious. So toss out the store-bought preservative filled packaged cookies and try out this super easy recipe, using my favourite flour – coconut flour!
I was joyous to find coconut flour at Homesense the other day which is why I was inspired to create these little gems. For those of you who don't know what Homesense is, it's a store in Canada that sells housewares at cheaper prices and they also have a food section. I've bought hempseeds there before too, for super cheap!
I am so excited to share these cookies with you and I just know you are gonna love them. I will share the nutritional highlight below because it tastes better when you know they're good for you too :)
P.S: Your kitchen is about to smell amazing!
As you may have noticed from my book JOYOUS HEALTH: Eat and Live Well Without Dieting, I absolutely LOVE coconut flour. It has such a wonderful texture as you will notice these cookies are soft and chewy.
Here are 5 Health Benefits of Coconut Flour:
Coconut flour is not easily substituted in place of other flours. I suggest you stick to recipes that already call for coconut flour as it can be tricky to work with it. It has a unique personality, as I like to say :)
Please feel free to share your favourite coconut flour recipes below. And let me know if you try this one out!
