I have, at least, come up with some smashingly delicious holiday treats, though probably putting them up 3 days before Christmas is not overly helpful.
Ah, well, happy new year!
My first recipe is these utterly perfect, allergen-free peanut butter cookies. If you happen to be allergic to peanuts? Hold on till tomorrow for the perfect pumpkin pie.
Peanut Butter Cookies
1c natural peanut butter
1c coconut oil, softened but not totally melted
3/4c maple sugar or coconut sugar (you can sub any sweetener you like)
3/4c coconut flour (or sub 2c spelt flour)
2t baking soda
1c peanuts, if desired
Cream first three ingredients. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. Add flour, salt, soda, and peanuts and mix well.
So good with hot tea or hot chocolate. Our tester batches were inhaled in minutes.
I couldn't get anything accomplished without my wonderful babysitter.
