Recipe type: Cookies
Serves: 10
Ingredients
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 Tablespoon sprouted flax seeds (I used Go Raw's Organic Sprouted Flax Seeds)
  • 2 teaspoons orange zest (about 2 medium oranges)
  • ⅛ teaspoon cloves
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • Fruit or vegetable leather (for decorating, if desired)
Instructions
  1. Grind sprouted flax seeds until it is turned into flour. I use Magic Bullet with the low blade. Place ground flax seeds in a small bowl. Add water one tablespoon at a time and mix thoroughly. Place in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
  2. Place ½ cup solid coconut oil in a bowl. Add ¼ cup honey. Beat with mixer until whipped.
  3. Add orange zest, cloves and vanilla.
  4. Add the flax "egg" and mix together.
  5. Measure ½ cup of coconut flour, firmly packed. I use Tropical Traditions and keep it in the freezer so it is still kind of moist and clumps together. Use the back of a knife to cut across the measuring cup to be sure you get an even measurement.
  6. Reserve two tablespoons of coconut flour.
  7. Sift the coconut flour to remove any small clumps. Mix the coconut flour into the bowl and mix thoroughly with a hand mixer. Allow to sit five minutes. If the dough is stiff but pliable and forms into a ball of dough, don't add any more coconut flour. Otherwise, add the rest of the coconut flour. Allow to sit for five minutes. Form into a ball, the cookie dough's texture should be very much like regular cookie cutter cookie dough.
  8. Divide ball in half. Place each piece between a piece of parchment paper and flatten into a circle. Refrigerate 15 minutes (not any longer because the dough will become too stiff - if it does become too stiff to easily use a cookie cutter allow to sit at room temperature for a few minutes).
  9. Remove from refrigerator, roll the dough slightly thinner with parchment paper in place.
  10. Apply "clothing" before baking if you are making snow people. :-) You can make your own, or use store bought fruit or vegetable leather.
  11. Bake at 350°F for 7 minutes.
