Thumbprint Cookies {Gluten, Dairy, Sugar Free}

Thumbprint Cookies {Gluten, Dairy, Sugar Free}

Thumbprint cookies are often hard to make completely sugar free as you have to find the right jam or make your own. 

However, when you find a jam that you are comfortable consuming make sure to bake these up as everyone will enjoy them! 

Gather all your ingredients. I am one of those types of bakers who doesn’t always seperate everything and just combines it all at once. 

But when you are mixing flours, I always reccommend making sure they are well combined before adding in the rest of the ingredients. 

With this Thumbprint Cookie recipe start by mixing all the dry ingredients together. Then add in everything else except the jam – save that for later! 

Now for the fun part! 

You have multiple options here:

  1. Use a cookie scoop – if you have one
  2. Use a tbsp scoop
  3. Use a tsp scoop

If you have a cookie scoop that’s amazing – I still have yet to invest in one. 

If you’d like to make 15 ish cookies then use a tablespoon size scoop. 

If you want to make a bunch of mini ones then you can use a teaspoon scoop.

When you place them on the cookie tray make sure they are well formed cookie balls, so when you place a hole in the centre they form correctly. 

They will crack a little bit, if this bothers you, just touch them up. Otherwise, the jam won’t fall out so don’t worry. 

Use your thumb, finger or spoon to place the correct size hole inside your cookie dough. 

It gets even better! Yes these cookies are a ton of fun to make, alright. 

Grab your jam:

  • Strawberry
  • Raspberry
  • Anything you’d like! 

Place the jam you chose into a bag and cut a hole in the corner so you can easily place it into the centre of the cookies. 

Place in the oven at 350 for 12-14 minutes. You’ll want them to just be very slightly browning. Let them cool for 5 minutes before you try one, then enjoy!

Alright now here is the fun part! If you actually read through the whole blog you get the secret!

This recipe can really be done with ANY frozen fruit and another of my favourites is with frozen Stawberries.

 

Use 2 1/2 cups of frozen ice cream instead of 3 frozen bananas. 

Lastly, cherries are the BEST! 

 

Substitute 2 cups frozen cherries instead of 3 frozen bananas.

Paleo Pannenkoek {Sugar, Dairy, Gluten Free}

3 Ingredient Pannekoek, everyone will love!

 

In case you don’t know, breakfast is my favourite meal of the day! I truly believe that our day can be started off right by having the best breakfast ever.

I especially love pancakes. It comes from an old family tradition of having pancakes or waffles every Sunday morning. This recipe however, is closer to the dutch pannekoek. Which is larger than a pancake and slightly thicker than a crepe.

One thing I still miss about being gluten, dairy and sugar free is my European food. Trust me I’ve had it all before and I sure do know how good it is! Well these are a pretty tasty pannekoek substitute for being: gluten, dairy and sugar free

You’ll have to try them yourself to decide!

Personally, I think if you roll them up with berries and coconut whip cream inside you have a super delicious dessert, that everyone will love!

Gluten Free Bread {Sugar, Dairy Free}

Gluten Free Bread {Sugar, Dairy Free}

The best gluten, dairy and sugar free bread!

Before I dropped gluten I was a major bread eater! I love it, who doesn’t?

However, I hadn’t found a replacement until I stumbled upon this recipe!

I swear if you added a couple tbsp of coconut sugar this would be an amazing cake, but I have yet to try that.

This recipe is super quick to make once you have done it. I also recommend buying egg whites instead of separating a whole bunch, saves you time and money!

Enjoy!
