All of these obscure national holidays really serve a purpose when writing a foods blog - they're great inspiration for new recipes! July 9th marks the well-known National Sugar Cookie Day. If you're not celebrating, you're seriously missing out.

With this glorious holiday upon us, we had to recreate our favorite comforting cookie to be gluten-free and sugar-free! Check out the recipe below. Let us know if you try it out yourself!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon Stevia
  • 1 and 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or silpat (our favorite).
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, egg, extracts, and stevia.
  • Right into that same bowl, add in the remaining ingredients and mix well. It should result in quite a thick dough
  • Roll the dough into small balls, and then flatten between your palms to make your desired sugar cookie shape.
  • Bake for 12 minutes. Enjoy with a scoop of Lemon Cake Wink!
