Shortbread Cookies {AIP/Paleo}

I was incredibly fortunate to be sent some sample packets of Otto’s Natural Cassava Flour this past week, a flour that is and my daughter immediately wanted to try and make some cookies…  Also known as yuca, Cassava is a delicious root vegetable that becomes the perfect alternative for wheat when dried and ground and can be substituted 1:1 for Wheat Flours… I didn’t believe until I used it but it really provides a texture that matches Gluten Flours…

Our go to cookie recipe  is Beyond the Bite’s Sugar Cut Out Cookies, and we’ve made many variations including adding Enjoy Life’s Chocolate Chips (not AIP Compliant have been successfully reintroduced for my daughter… but not me … sniff)

So when she asked to make cookies, I knew the recipe I wanted to adapt, and so below I share this egg free, dairy free, grain free, nut free cookie recipe inspired by Gabriella’s original recipe (which you must totally try because they are simply delicious)

Tip… if your family want Chocolate Chip Cookies and there is somebody in the family who can’t eat chocolate, make up the dough, and divide it into separate batches, and just add chocolate to one of the batches 😉

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a Food Processor pulse together all of the dry ingredients
  3. Add maple syrup, vanilla extract, and palm shortening, long enough for a ball of dough to form
  4. Using a cookie scoop, portion out the mixture and place them onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
  5. Put the sheet into the oven and allow to bake for 10-12 minutes, until golden brown on top.
  6. These cookies are very short and remind me of English Short Breads (hence the name ) and will crumble when moved immediately out of the oven. Let cool for 10 minutes on Baking Sheet before transferring to a cooling rack

  1. Just made these – powdered the coconut sugar in a coffee grinder and mixed everything by hand… rolled the dough out between two sheets of parchment paper and made wonderful cut out cookies! thank you very much for this great recipe!!
