    Almond - butter cookies!

    Post by thinestever82 on Sat Feb 20 2016, 00:33

    Hi guys!

    I found out the following recipe and tried it and I simply love these cookies and make the dough with the bread machine so no efforts and in no time! You must try them!!! I think that in the end can also be dipped in some dark chocolate mrgreen

    http://www.cavolettodibruxelles.it/2013/07/palets-amandes-citron-no-sugar-no-gluten

    RECIPE FOR ABOUT 16 COOKIES:

    - 200 gr of almond flour
    - 90 g of butter or ghee
    - 2tbs of erythritol or similar sweetener
    - peel of 1 lemon
    - pinch of salt

    Combine all together till well mixed and then put it in a plastic wrap making a 3 cm profound roll and cover it up all around. Put it in a freezer for 30 minutes. I put it in a fridge but wasn't so solid I would expected but was enough. Then just cut slices of about a 1 cm large and put them on a parchment paper. Bake it on 180 degrees for about 13-15 minutes till golden brown. Mine were ready at 10 minutes already. As soon as they are ready they appear too soft but don't worry. You need to leave them to cool down before putting them on a plate. When totally cooled down, become more solid and easy to handle.

    Hope you will enjoy them! Me and my husband became totally addicted to them!

For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !
