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┬áleave you craving more sweets!

Mix:

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!
