Gluten-Free Blueberry Tahini Cookies

Eat Menstrual Phase

Made these on a whim tonight because I “just felt like baking”. Usually, I have to recipe test baked goods pretty hard. Like, I have still yet to master gluten-free pancakes hard. (Let a girl know if you have a secret recipe) These cookies tonight though, they were so fluffy and delightful.

I love recipes like this that can be used for multiple different occasions. I could take these to a party or I could literally eat them for breakfast. They’re that nourishing! Also super easy to digest for all my GP friends out there, I got you.

Let’s talk about tahini really quick too. It’s one of the highest sources of calcium you can get. I just found this out tonight as well and I am super excited! Keep your eyes peeled for where it might pop-up next! Maybe salad dressing?

Anyway, I highly recommend this one right here. Do it!

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup frozen organic wild blueberries
  • 1/2 coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup organic maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1 egg (or sub flax egg)
  • 1 tbsp ground flax + chia mix
  • 1/4 cup almond milk

 

Make it

Preheat over to 350F. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together (except the blueberries!) until a thick dough texture forms. Fold in frozen blueberries (may also use fresh, the organic wild are just small and easy to fold). Roll into 1 inch balls, place on parchment-lined baking sheet, and lightly press down with hand. Bake for 15 minutes. Let cool for 5-10 minutes, enjoy!

Pro tip: dunk/ submerge in unsweetened vanilla almond milk. A fluffy dream. OR add to breakfast bowls with yogurt.

Rose Cacao Latte
This winter has been all about living that full-fat latte life! Is that a thing? Well if not, now it is. It's been way too cold for smoothies most mornings, but I've wanted to incorporate more supplements and herbs for immunity. In my mind, supplements are so difficult to remember if you're taking them in pill form. This is why I like incorporating them into my daily diet. This latte is packed full of nourishing fat from coconut butter for energy and fullness all morning long. My favorite part is that you can pre-pack it in a reusable Stasher Bag and take on the go. This makes it perfect for traveling or you can pre-pack it to make at ...

Gluten-Free Pancakes with Oat Flour
I have tried to make my own gluten-free pancake mix for years now. I'm not talking about those banana-egg-protein pancakes. I shouldn't even say pancakes, I'm sorry, they're just not. I'm talking about fluffy little clouds of heaven. The other day all I had on me was oats, as they're inexpensive and I don't always keep nut flours stocked. So, I decided to search for a recipe with minimal ingredients that would yield in traditional pancakes...and boy, did I find it. This recipe has been adapted from The Food Prepper, the genius behind the initial recipe I found! The small changes I made to these help fight inflammation and keep your gut in ...
