How to Make Delicious Cookies (Gfree)

These tiny bite-sized cookies are grain-free, made with coconut flour. Strong enough to hold your favorite filling yet deliciously moist and chewy. My Filled Coconut Cookie Recipe is online here. I filled these with my favorite fruit preserves, pumpkin pie filling, and lemon curd.

Your holiday party is your gift to your guests. With my healthy tips below, you are giving the enduring gift of empowerment.

TIPS FOR SUBSTITUTE INGREDIENTS

DAIRY For those who are lactose-intolerant, whole milk substitutes include non-dairy nut, rice, coconut and soy milks. Flavored with chocolate or vanilla, these ingredients are easy to work into desserts.

SUGAR Instead of using refined sugar in dishes, use maple syrup, honey, stevia, date paste or mashed banana. Fruit spreads also offer concentrated flavor.

FAT Excellent sources of healthy fat, depending on the recipe, are coconut oil, nut butters and even a little mashed avocado. None of these have cholesterol.

GRAIN For those who need gluten-free food, finding a substitute for wheat flour can be tricky. Some need to skip refined grains completely. Nut flours, such as coconut or almond flour, can work well in baking.
