A few days ago I posted my variation of Scandinavian Thumbprint Cookies, and many of you tried them and love them I wanted to try another recipe from the cookbook which inspired the thumbprint cookies, Swedish Cakes and Cookies.
The second recipe comes from the same page as the first, and is called Coconut Dreams. Because my version is gluten free cookies I needed applesauce and chia meal (or an egg would probably work too) to help hold it together. They came out really yummy. I hope you all enjoy them too!
Coconut Dreams (gluten free cookies)
Add to bowl:
1/2 cup applesauce
1 tbsp Chia Seed meal (I grind my seeds in coffee grinder or Magic Bullet. 1 tbsp meal is equal to about 1/2 tbsp seeds)
1/4 cup honey (or other sugar)
15 drops vanilla liquid stevia
1/4 cup melted ghee
1/4 cup coconut oil, liquified
optional: 1/4 tsp almond extract
Mix with electric mixer.
1 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup arrowroot flour
1/3 cup coconut flour, sifted
1/2 cup almond meal flour (I used Bob’s)
3/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
Mix again. Roll into little balls and flatten between your hands. Bake on unbleached parchment paper at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes. Makes about 20.
