21 Day Sugar Detox Apple Pie Breakfast Cookies! (Grain/Egg/ Gluten Free)

May 11, 2015

21 dsd apple pie cookies

As I have said many times before, I have no problem with low glycemic sweeteners such as stevia and xylitol. So when I quit sugar (like I am at the moment) I allow them.  BUT, I know thats not the case for everyone and that many of you really enjoy doing the 21 day sugar detox.

So, I created a cookie recipe for you, that is just a TINY bit sweet- filled with chunks of green apple as the diet guidelines mandate. I loaded up the cookie with cinnamon and ginger to help give it a nice bit of flavor despite being sugar free.I figured they would be best for breakfast as they are both pretty big, and I don't mind not eating non-sweet things for breakfast.

The white drizzle on top of the cookies is melted coconut butter! (Which is also NOT sweet!) So please don't be fooled :)

21 Day Sugar Detox Apple Pie Breakfast Cookies! (Grain/Egg/ Gluten Free)

Ingredients

  • 2 packed cups of blanched almond flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 TBSP of Cinnamon
  • 2 Teaspoons of Powdered Ginger
  • 3/4 Teaspoon of Powdered Cloves.
  • 1 1/2 TBSP of Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 TBSP Milk or Water
  • 5 TBSP's of room temperature Butter. (aka Slightly Softened)
  • 2 cups of finely diced green apple

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 360 degrees. Line one cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In the bowl mix together the flour,salt and spices.
  3. Pour in the vanilla extract, milk and the butter. Using your spoon (and your hands if needed) mix together until it forms a dough. This may take a minute- the longer your mix almond flour the more the dough will come together.
  4. Chop and mix in the apples.
  5. Form 6 large round 1/2 inch cookies. (They will not spread or poof up while baking) place on the parchment paper on the baking sheet.
  6. Bake 20 minutes until the edges feel firm to touch. Cookies without sugar really don't change color much when baked!
