I just purchased 25 lbs of coconut flour and am totally excited to try out recipes with it. Beware - lots of coconut flour recipes coming.
I image all the recipes popping up on the blog have been different then what was my norm for recipes. I am going to have to get you up to date at some point, but I am taking sugar and carbs out of my diet (as much as I can) and recently am lowering my wheat intake as well.

Anyways, on to the Cinnamon Sugar Cookies, or I should say “sugar free” cookies.
I came across these in a search for chocolate chip coconut flour cookies and thought I would give these a go. Jeremiah had been asking me to make cookies, so I figured I would test these on the kids.
I showed him a picture of them, and he said “Oh yummy!” So far so good..
I was REALLY hoping the boys would like these! It’s hard to get kids to switch from the normal sugar to better sugars.
These were extremely simple to make, and turned out better than I had expected. I am a cookie dough addict. I found myself NOT liking to eat this cookie dough, which made me wonder if the cookie itself was any good.
Once out of the oven, they seemed more like “cake” cookies. A different texture really, but still fluffy and good. After they have sat for a few hours, they are even better.
I adapted this recipe from Jamie Oliver.
I am happy to report BOTH boys loved these. This mama’s happy! These will be a staple in our home for sure.
