If you’re like me and you’re on a grain-free or low-grain diet, then you’ve got to try cassava flour. Cassava flour comes from a root and not a grain, and so it’s perfect for paleo diets. Plus, cassava flour substitutes really well for wheat flour, and is very neutral in flavor. 

This is a really easy cookie recipe to throw together. Whether you need a quick dessert for kiddos or just for yourself, I think you’re really going to love this recipe!

Step Four

Transfer the cookies to a cooling rack and let them cool for about 10 minutes before serving.

The cookies may be a little crumbly when they first come out of the oven, but they will firm up as they cool, and especially if you refrigerate them after you bake them.

It has a very neutral flavor which is why it substitutes so well for wheat flour.

I buy it online. Otto’s Cassava Flour is the best brand because it is very consistent and I always get a good result.
