In the season of all things pumpkin, I’ve been on a roll. I often print out lots of recipes and pull from them later on what I might fix. Unfortunately, I’m also known to print out things that I assume are paleo, and they are not.
I’m getting better at understanding which flours work for substitutes and how to work my way around even a regular recipe to make it work for Paleo. So when the Pumpkin Snickerdoodle recipe graced my pile, I knew it had to be transformed “Paleo”. My kids and husband said these were like pumpkin cake, so I’d say that is a success!
PALEO PUMPKIN SNICKERDOODLES
1 cup of coconut oil
1 cup of coconut sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla
Pinch of salt
1 can of organic pumpkin
1 1/2 cups almond flour
1 cup arrow-root flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
COATING (in small bowl to roll balls into before smashing):
3/4 cup of coconut sugar or date sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine ingredients for cookies, and coating – separately.
Take small amount of dough with cookie scoop, and drop it into the coating bowl. Roll in bowl to coat and drop on lined cookie sheet. Flatten all cookies with a small square of parchment paper before baking.
Bake for 10 minutes until golden brown, and cool before eating.
I thought I’d share something positive with you today, but I’m feeling really horrible. I’m pretty sure it’s some pastured pork that I tried again – yep, I’m pretty positive it’s grain finished. It’s days like these, that I just hurt all over, I can’t barely bend my fingers to hold something and my head throbs… that I think – UGH, Lord, really?? Praying to enjoy this moment and being grateful for the struggle! My go-to verse for my less than ideal days, when there is no time for pity-parties?
“But He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
2 Cor. 12:9
