Firstly, I am going to admit that this was not my creative genius! I found the idea here:
“Cute Hugging Bear Cookies by Maa Tamagosan” and I thank her for her gorgeous creativity!
But, sorry….. (not sorry) I found the ingredients to be less than ideal!
So here is my low carb, gluten free, *sugar free, *dairy free version! It’s still a work in progress.
I attempted a variation of this recipe from Wellness Mama > Coconut Flour Biscuits
This recipe would definitely benefit from some sweetness (stevia doesn’t affect your blood sugar levels) try adding more cinnamon and/or nutmeg, I might even add in some of my homemade vanilla essence for the next batch!)
Have fun creating, and please do list any suggestions, positive or negative feedback. I would love to be privy to the ultimate paleo/primal/low carb cookie recipe!
Sarah Wilson explains “My best snack ever: activated nuts. You can buy these in health food shops, but they’re expensive. Make your own in bulk: soak a huge bag of almonds overnight in a pot of water with a tbls of rock salt. Drain. Lay out on a baking tray and “heat” in the oven at the lowest temperature possible (less than 65 C; for gas ovens – on the pilot light) for 12-24 hours. Crunchy, slightly toasty goodness. PLUS they’re full of enzymes – activated nuts have sprouted, which means their digestive enzymes have been activated, making them easier to digest, but also great for your metabolism overall. The more enzymes you eat, the less of your own body’s enzymes are required to break down food…which keeps you younger, longer.”
