I have the perfect Cassava Flour Cookie for you! This grain-free and gluten-free recipe uses cassava flour, and it’s the perfect healthy treat for the holidays.
I got of ton of inspiration on healthy baking during the interview I did with Chef Vanessa Musi. She and I bonded over our love for cassava flour, and she reminded me that coconut sugar is a lower-glycemic option too. Actually, in that episode, Vanessa specifically mentioned a brand of coconut sugar that includes fiber and prebiotics, but for this recipe I used just plain coconut sugar.
The recipe using cassava flour and coconut sugar comes together easily and quickly, and only needs 16-18 minutes to bake.
I continue to be astounded how well cassava flour subs for regular flour, and in this case it created a light and fluffy cookie batch that disappeared almost as quickly as it was made.
I mean, honestly, how could I resist chocolate + peppermint? And resist I did not, ha ha!
I’ll be making another batch for when the big guy visits this weekend, and I’m serving the cookies with a glass of almond milk to wash them down. I hope Santa likes this combination as much as I do.
