Raw Frosted Sugar Cookies
Makes 20-24 cookies
- 1/2 cup blanched almond flour
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 cup + 1 teaspoon fine xylitol
- 3 tablespoons water
- 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
Sift the coconut flour into a bowl. Add all remaining ingredients and stir together until evenly combined. Let the mixture sit for a few minutes until the dough thickens a bit. Use a mini ice cream scoop to make balls and release them onto a parchment paper lined tray. Flatten each ball with your hand. Set in the fridge or freezer to firm up while making the frosting.
- 1/4 cup melted coconut butter
- 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons fine powdered xylitol
- 1/4 cup cool water
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Beet powder, as needed for color
Whisk all ingredients together until smooth. Keep whisking until the mixture thickens a little and if this takes some time, let the frosting sit for a few minutes and then whisk again. It needs to thicken slightly. When it thickens (when you spoon a dollop onto any surface, it should hold some shape and not be runny), spoon some frosting over each cookie. Garnish with freeze dried strawberries or goji berries. Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes for the frosting to firm up.
