If you’re a regular reader of this blog (if you’re not, you should be. Sign up for my mailing list to get updates when there’s a new blog AND get a FREE Beginners Guide to Dietary-Restriction Friendly Essentials checklist), you know that we’ve made a cake from Namaste. It was delicious.
We’ve been meaning to make these cookies for a while, so why not make them for Santa? It’s early, so a trial run for Santa. GFS wants to be on the “Nice” list.If Santa is lactose intolerant like Scott Calvin, make him cookies that are top 8 allergen-free Click To Tweet
As I mentioned before, these cookies are free from the Top 8 allergens. That means that these cookie are free from wheat, soy, dairy, shellfish, fish, peanut, tree nut, and egg. For this recipe, we did use eggs. However, you can use an egg alternative such as Veganegg if you have an allergy or want a paleo friendly recipe.
2 eggs/egg substitute
1/3 c butter or margarine (we used Earth Balance Soy-free Butter)
1/3 c shortening
2 tsps cinnamon
3 tbsp sugar
*Pro tip #1: you can replace shortening with 1/4 c of coconut oil; microwave until liquified
-Heat oven to 400
-Spray cookie sheet
-Combine eggs/egg alternative, butter, and shortening/coconut oil until creamy
-Slowly add dry mix, incorporating well after each addition.
Combine cinnamon and sugar in a separate bowl.
Place on cookie sheet and bake 8-10 minutes until bottoms are golden brown. If your oven is special like ours, bake for 15 minutes.
*Pro tip #2: Let mix stand for approximately 10 minutes before adding to cinnamon & sugar mix. We didn’t do this with the first batch of cookies and it was very sticky. By the time we got to what was left in the bowl, it was much easier to work with.
Cool on wire rack.
*Optional: Fold a handful of chocolate chips, nuts, coconuts, raisins, or dried fruit. Bake as directed above.
Yields: 17 (this varies depending on dough size)
Verdict: any Santa would enjoy, whether he has allergies or not. Don’t forget to leave out almond, soy, or rice milk! There’s also So Delicious Holiday Nog if you’re feeling extra classy.
