Sugar-free Coconut Cookies & SweatLeaf Stevia Giveaway!

There are many reasons to go sugar free. Health concerns such as diabetes and candida overgrowth require a sugar free diet in order to heal. In general, it’s not a bad idea to go sugar free for a period of time to do a little sugar cleanse. Sugar is very hard on the body and should only be used sparingly, if at all. This month I have been concentrating on reducing even natural sweeteners as preparation for my Winter Cleanse program (starting February 24th).

SweetLeaf Stevia contacted me recently and asked me to develop some recipes using their products, which was a fun project. These cookies are one of the recipes I came up with. I also used their SweetLeaf Stevia clear in this Butternut Squash Soup Recipe.

Stevia is a natural sweetener which is extracted from the stevia plant. It is 300 times sweeter then sugar which makes it a great alternative to use in small amounts. Stevia is a great choice for diabetics, and anyone on a candida diet because it does not cause a spike in blood sugar levels like sugar or other sweeteners.

I hope you enjoy this recipe…

Coconut Cookies

Ingredients:

Pre-heat oven to 350. Mix together almond flour, coconut flour, shredded coconut, baking powder and baking soda in a bowl and set aside. In a high powered blender or food processor mix together the flax seeds, coconut milk, almond butter, coconut oil, vinegar, stevia, vanilla, dates, and honey until smooth. Pour batter into a bowl and hand mix in the flour mixture. Fold in chocolate chips. Bake 12-15 minutes – 12 minutes is a softer cookie and 15 minutes is a more crisp cookie.

And now for the giveaway…
