I’m addicted to cinnamon – there is something so comforting about the smell of cinnamon. It is perfect in cookies because it helps to stabilize blood sugar levels and helps keep sugar cravings under control.
These cookies are the right amount of sweetness for our family, but you could add a tsp or two of honey and it will add an extra sweet hit. I used buckwheat flour because it packed with nutrients and it is one of the cheaper gluten free flours.
Cinnamon Mini Cookies
(Dairy free, wheat free, and refined sugar free)
2 beaten eggs
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1/4 cup olive oil
1 cup buckwheat flour
1/2 cut oats
1/2 cup fine coconut
4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of sea salt
I love this kind of baking, it is just a put it all together and mix well kind of baking that suits my busy lifestyle.
Preheat oven to 180 C.
In a large bowl add the beaten eggs and mix in the coconut sugar. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well until the mixture is able to form into balls.
The balls will be a bit sticky so you may need to put some four on your hands first. Shape into 12-14 bite size balls and flatten with a floured fork.
Bake for around 10 minutes until golden.
