Gluten-Free Treats on the Fibromyalgia Diet!



On the fibromyalgia diet, sometimes you feel like you just want a treat. Here is a simple recipe for cookies that are gluten-free. Little buttery cookies that are so good you won't feel like you're giving up anything! Your friends who don't need to be careful about what they eat will also love these.

Almond Cookies

Makes about 18

1 1/2 cups crispy almonds (see bottom of this page).

1/2 cup butter, softened or coconut oil

1/2 cup arrowroot or 7/8 cup bulgur flour

1 cup sucanat or rapadura

1/2 sea salt

grated rind of 1 lemon

1 tsp each, vanilla extract and almond extract

set aside about 18 crispy almonds (for the tops)

Place almonds in food processor and pulse to a fine meal. Add remaining ingredients minus 18 whole almonds and process until well blended. Form the dough into 18 walnut-sized balls and place on buttered cookie sheets. Press a whole almond into each.

Bake at 300 degrees U.S. temperature, for 20 minutes. After 5 minutes in the oven, press each cookie down lightly with a fork. Let cool completely before storing in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

I like to sprinkle these with a little cinnamon on top.

Crispy Almonds

Take about 4 cups of raw almonds and place in a large bowl. Cover with water and add

1 tablespoon sea salt

Let this sit for at least 7 hours/overnight to improve digestibility. Drain and spread on a stainless steel baking pan and dry in a warm oven (no more than 150 degrees for 12-24 hours until dry and crisp. If you have a dehydrator, place them in there. Store in an airtight container.
