Low Carb Cookies – I am no Jamie Oliver, Gordon Ramsay or Nigella Lawson but I do feel like it this week with the most important discovery so far; Low carb coooookiiieeeesssss!
So it was a god send I promise. I was walking down the TESCO isle looking at all the cookies, cereals and what-not and sighing deeply when I saw Sukrin Almond Flour and I just read the low carb flour part and picked it up. Incredible this flour has only 4g carbs per 100g of flour which seems out of this world.
Since this stuff is gluten, dairy, cruelty and sadness free, rules are slightly different. I added some flour, soy milk, Organic Stevia and an egg and prepared the batter.
The proportion of ingredients is below:
4 tablespoons flour
4 teaspoons stevia
1/2 cup soy milk
Adding a small dollop of butter really helps but the flour feels slightly broken because there’s no gluten to bind it together. You need to add extra liquid to make it work. Once batter is ready pre heat the oven to 160 degrees and lightly oil a non stick tray with coconut oil. Use your hands or a cookie cutter to make cookies and bake for 12-15 minutes. Keep checking them because the longer you bake the more dry and brittle these will become. The smell of baking will fill your whole house.
I am planning to experiment by adding a bit of chocolate chips or vanilla or other essences to see if they make any difference. So now you know why I feel like all those amazing chefs just on the back of these 6 simple cookies, creation is a wonderful feeling.
