Fun Fact: For health reasons in the past, I was Paleo for 2 years; a lifestyle which eliminates grains, gluten, dairy, and refined sugars. While I adore IIFYM and finding balance in life, my current diet is probably 70% paleo because there is a noticeable difference for me when I’m running off of whole foods as fuel!
Anywho, I was hard core elfing around my house in a plaid onesie yesterday making these Paleo Christmas cookies! 🎄🤶🏼Super easy, flourless, and a great source of Vitamin E to keeping that winter skin a-glowing!
⭐️90g (~3/4 cup) raw cashews, blended into a flour using a food processor
⭐️30g (1) egg whites
⭐️granulated sweetener to taste (I used 2 tbsp monk fruit extract)
1️⃣Whip the egg whites by hand until stiff peaks form, slowly adding in sweetener of choice.
2️⃣Stir in the vanilla, salt, and cashew flour. Form a dough.
3️⃣Roll the dough until it’s 1cm thick and refrigerate 2hrs - overnight.
4️⃣Remove from fridge and cut into shapes (I used “sterne” shapes as my Oma calls them - aka. stars - because YOU GUYS ARE STARS), pressing sprinkles into the top before baking.
5️⃣Preheat oven to 320 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place your cookies on the sheet and bake for about 8 minutes.
