This is a delicious cookie that makes a healthy snack. Just don’t eat too many! Although the sweetener used, xylitol, is calorie free and benefits you by killing candida (yeast), like any sweetener, it can leave you craving more sweets!
1 cup almond, cashew or peanut butter (or a mix)
1/4 cup coconut flour, almond flour, ground flax, or rice bran (or a mix)
1 egg (optional)
2-3 tbsp xylitol (Xylo Sweet)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 tsp salt plus extra for sprinkling
coconut oil or parchment paper for pan
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients until well combined. Roll dough into 6 balls and place about 1 inch apart onto a baking sheet greased with coconut oil or lined with parchment paper. Flatten cookies with a fork or palms of hands and sprinkle with a pinch of salt if desired.
Bake until golden around the edges, about 9-11 minutes, turn cookie sheet halfway through baking. Transfer to racks to cool. Enjoy in moderation!
