This past week I found some dairy free eggnog on mark down at the store. Hunter loves loves loves this stuff so I bought several containers for him to enjoy this week of Christmas. I decided that I should use some of it for baking! Of course! After scouring the internet and reading about ten different recipes for eggnog cookies, I came up with this little gem that I used to make some supertasty treats for our family. Everyone seemed to like them, including the dog.
Gluten Free Eggnog Cookies
3 cups Pamela’s Baking and Pancake mix (you can use a different mix or a combination of your own gluten free flours in order to make this cookie dairy free)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt (I used pink salt)
2 TB almond meal
1/2 cup coconut sap sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/4 cup apple sauce (I use unsweetened organic from Trader Joe’s)
1/3 cup coconut oil (softened would be good)
3/4 cup So Delicious Coconut Milk Egg Nog (or any egg nog of your choice)
15-20 drops of liquid stevia
In a large bowl, mix together all of your dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients together. Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir until you have a sticky batter. Let it sit on the counter for a little while. You can put a load of laundry in the machine or wash up some dishes. Or, if you are like me, make sure the kids aren’t wrecking the house. When you remember that you are making cookies, head back to the kitchen, turn the oven on to 350 degrees. Grease a cookie sheet (I like to just use my fingers with some coconut oil… I had to put oil on my hands for the next step anyway so…). Make sure you have put your rings in a safe place. Now, scoop up little balls of cookie batter, roll them up until they are nicely roundish, place them on the cookie sheet with a little space between them (look, you know how to do this. you are no idiot) and let them back from about 10-12 minutes and remove them promptly. Enjoy! And don’t forget to save a cookie for Santa!
Have a very Merry gluten free Christmas.
