It doesn’t take much for me to want to bake some cookies. And now that it’s officially the holiday baking season, it’s ON! Here’s 35 of my favorite grain free holiday cookie recipes to get you inspired.
I love to cook, and I really love to bake. Especially around the holidays. I love to share wonderful, healthier treats with the people that I love. I’m not much into the commercial side of the holidays. I much prefer to make my own gifts- especially edible gifts.
Each year, I choose a few different kinds of cookies to bake and to share. This year it was really hard to decide what to make. There are so many fabulous recipes out there. Today I am sharing with you 35 of the most delicious ones that I found.
New to grain free baking?
It may be hard to imaging baking without grains, but once you see how many alternatives there are, it’s super easy. You just have to learn how to work with them.
The most common grain free flours are coconut flour and blanched almond flour. I use both, depending on what I am making. Please note that coconut flour and almond flour cannot be used interchangeably.
The best way to get started is to just dive in. Experiment. See what you like.
Other things you may need for baking:
- unbleached parchment paper
- silicone baking mat
- adorable cookie cutters
- good quality heavy baking sheet
- grandma’s rolling pin
