Is Santa Gluten Intolerant?

With the overly red face and big belly, it is possible…however, I cannot say for sure..Santa is not a patient of mine (not yet, anyway!).

In our household, we decided to make him gluten free cookies..just in case!

And I have to share this amazing recipe with you b/c you simply won’t miss gluten (or any flour product at all) b/c they are amazing! Santa (and my 8 year old approved!)

– 1 cup ground almonds (almond meal)

– 50 grams melted butter organic, unsalted butter

-1/4 cup raw, unprocessed, sucanat or coconut sugar

-1/2 cup of  dark, naturally sweetened cocoa chips

– 1 egg- pasture raised

– 1tsp. cinnamon

-1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)

– A pinch of sea salt

Preheat oven to 340 F

Mix together all of the ingredients, don’t add the butter while it is still hot – let it cool for a while before adding it to the batter.

Fold in chocolate.

Line a baking tray with baking paper.

Take one heaping teaspoon of batter at a time and place on to the baking tray.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until they are done. Take them out of the oven when the sides start to brown.
