Zen Found in a Cookie


Can zen be found in a cookie? After tasting these delightful Ginger-Cinnamon cookies from a recipe posted over at the Tao Bums, I say (with an enthusiastic YES!) zen can most definitely be found in a cookie. These delicious and very quick and easy to bake cookies, posted by Karen from guideforselfhealing.com, are free from both grains and refined sugar. For those of us who are attempting to maintain an anti-fungal diet, these cookies provide another snack food option, in addition to the raw almonds, walnuts, berries, green apples, and grapefruit. Sometimes finding that perfect moment of bliss is as simple as eating a cookie.

(recipe posted with permission from Karen)

4 tablespoons butter, melted
1/3 cup honey
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/8 tsp salt (I used a little less than 1/8 tsp.)
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 cups almond flour (I used 1 3/4 c. + 1/4 c. soy flour)
1/2 cup grated coconut (optional) (I did not use coconut)

Preheat oven to 300F.Place butter in mixing bowl. Add all other ingredients, stirring flour in last. Form dough into 1-inch diameter balls and place on a buttered cookie sheet. Bake 10-15 minutes, or until done. Watch that they don't burn around the edges. You can adjust the spices to taste, or add others like nutmeg, cloves, etc.

(I also added extra nutmeg, cloves, ginger, and cinnamon, to taste.)

Until we meet again,
