Paleo Pumpkin Snickerdoodles

COOKIES

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

tsp cinnamon

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.

 

 

 

 

SMASHINGI 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
