Salty Paleo Cookie (Gluten & Grain free)
This is an ultimate high fat low sugar snack for those who are watching their sugar intake or on Paleo or GAPS diet. (If you are not so concerned about your sugar intake, you can add 50g of coconut flour sugar to this recipe.)
The amazing part of this cookie is that eventually, you will start to enjoy the subtle sweetness from the nuts and seeds that are brought out by the salt sprinkled on top of this nutty cookie.
Sugar intake is a vicious cycle. The more you are exposed to sugar, the more you will crave it. The more you strip off sugar from your diet the less you will 'need' sugar in your life.
If you are trying to go low on sugar, give this cookie a try and kick start your low carb & low sugar diet.
When freshly baked, this cookie will have a shortbread-like light texture but the second day it will start to soften and become a bit chewy.
This cookie will taste better after completely cooled.
