Overnight Almond Paleo Snickerdoodle Cookies

IMG_20130809_144322

I have been getting these intense sugar cravings all week!! I blame my fiancé, Emerson. He has quite a sweet tooth.  I would prefer a nice juicy and sour pickle over a box of chocolate any day!!

I don’t own any kind of flour that contains gluten so I decided to use my almonds.  I had someone ask me where I buy my almond flour because it’s so expensive.  Well, the easiest way is to do it yourself!  Costco and other bulk stores sell 3 lb. bags of unsalted almonds.  All I do is use my tiny cooks coffee grinder to grind the almonds.  You can just grind the entire bag in one sitting and BAM, you have a jar of almond flour!  Do the same with coconut flakes, brown rice and more!

 

Here it is folks!

Ingredients

1 ½ c almond flour (just grind almonds –  it’s cheaper)

1 tbsp coconut flour (just grind coconut – it’s cheaper)

1 tbsp milled flaxseed

1/3 c honey

1/4 c coconut oil (melt it in the microwave for 20 sec)

1 whisked egg

1 tsp vanilla

¾ tsp cinnamon

¾ tsp baking soda

¼ tsp sea salt

**Keep your cinnamon container handy, as you will need more to roll the cookies in.

Prepare

  • Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl and then the wet ingredients in a separate bowl.
  • Mix the ingredients together and then pour into a small soup bowl or mixing bowl.
  • Cover the bowl with saran wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  • The dough will be very sticky and will need to thicken up.

Bake away!

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Remove saran wrap.
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and then sprinkle the entire thing with cinnamon. Do not use cooking spray on a plain baking sheet or else the cookies will stick and burn to a crisp!
  • Use a melon baller or a small spoon to place dough onto the parchment paper.   Make sure to roll the dough into a ball if it.
  • In a small bowl, pour 1 tbsp of cinnamon.
  • Roll the bottom of the cup in cinnamon and then press flatten each cookie ball.  You should end up with 20-22 cookies.

Cheers!
