5 Ingredient Cinnamon Spiced Christmas Cookies

There’s nothing better at Christmas than a deliciously spiced biscuit, one that you know isn’t going to send your blood sugars crazy, make you feel heavy and lethargic or cause that well-known gluten-causing bloat. These biscuits have a desirable crunch but  also hold their chew. They are spiced with cinnamon and mixed spice, but you could of course change these flavourings to whatever you desired! I like to roll mine nice and thin (about 0.3 mm) so that they have a crunch, however to have more of a cookie texture you would roll it to 1.0-1.5cm.

My advice when rolling is to put the dough between two sheets of baking parchment, it’s easier that way. If you would like to hang them on the Christmas Tree then you can do so by putting a hole in the top of the cookie just before it goes in to the oven to bake. Decorate them with any thing you like, dipped chocolate, chopped nuts or some Sukrin icing sugar .

Delicious cinnamon Christmas biscuits with only 5 key ingredients! Free from any grains, dairy, gluten or refined sugar. Great for any one to enjoy!
Ingredients
  • 200g / 7.05 oz Nut Butter (I used cashew nut butter in this recipe)
  • 2.5-3 tsp Cinnamon
  • 0.5 tsp Mixed Spice (optional)
  • 2 TBSP Coconut Flour
  • 1 egg (Medium)
  • 100g / 3.5oz Coconut Sugar (or desired sweetener)
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 200°C / 392°F
  2. Have a cookie baking sheet ready with greaseproof paper on it
  3. In to a blender (or you can do it yourself in a mixing bowl) place the coconut sugar, cinnamon, mixed spice and blend until fully combined
  4. Add in nut butter and blend until fully combined (it will be clumping together)
  5. Now add coconut flour and egg and allow to blend until it has all come together in to a cookie ball (if it doesnt, don't worry, just stop once it's all combined)
  6. Place dough between two sheets of baking parchment and roll out to desired thickness (0.6-1.0cm for cookies and 0.3-0.4 for biscuits)
  7. Using cookie cutters, cut out your biscuits and carefully place on baking sheet
  8. Place in oven for 10 mins until golden brown
  9. Remove and LEAVE to cool for about 20-25 minutes to firm up or until you can pick one up easily (you mustn't try to move them off the sheet when they first come out as they need to solidify)
  10. Keep in an air tight container for up to 10 days
Notes
Make sure you have stirred your nut butter before use- it should have a caramel thickness to it.
If dough does seem too wet once made, add another 1-2 TBSP coconut flour
