Ingredients

  • 1/4 c . coconut oil (measure and use it in a semi-soft state)
  • 3 T . coconut sugar (or another natural granulated sugar)
  • 1 T . chickpea flour mixed with 2 T. milk (or 2 T. of a lightly beaten egg)
  • 1 t . vanilla
  • 3/4 c . spelt flour (can also use whole wheat or a gluten-free blend)
  • 1/4 t . sea salt
  • 1/8 t . baking soda
  • 1/8 t . powdered stevia extract

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl (flour, salt, baking soda, and stevia).
  • In a separate bowl, beat the soft coconut oil with the sugar for about one minute.
  • Add in either the 'chickpea' egg or regular chicken egg and vanilla, and beat for another minute.
  • Add in the dry mix and beat for another minute. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • Roll the dough into balls (I made 10), place them on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, and press down to get them into the shape you desire (they don't spread much).
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes (bottom should be golden).
  • Cool completely before frosting them.
