More Grain Free Fun!
My mom is on a low carb diet to help with her blood sugar.
She’s really good about sticking to it… But she does sometimes miss cookies, etc.
I like to make my almond meal and coconut flour baked goods so she can have a treat sometimes without loading up the blood sugar and spiking her insulin.
We used to always get mom Walker’s shortbread for Christmas… But this year that’s obviously out.
So today instead I make grain free, sugar free short bread.
It turned out really good. That kind of crumbly cookie lends itself well to almond flour.
It was pretty easy too.
1.5 cups almond flour
.5 cup coconut flour
6 tbsp butter
3 tbsp stevia “cup for cup”
2 tbsp cream
2 tsp vanilla
Melt the butter, add the liquid things to it.
Mix the dry stuff together.
Pour wet into dry and mix.
Press into a 9″ pie plate and bake 20 mins … Until golden brown with darker edges.
I pricked it with holes to ensure even baking and to make “perforated lines” to make it easy to cut once cool.
Cooling completely is important… It’s a little crumbly, so it will break I you try to cut it hot.
