I’m going on week one completed of the 21 day sugar detox. However, I was wanting a cookie (probably because I ‘can’t’ have one). I normally do not crave cookies, but this craving I had to act on because it’s snowy outside and I’m stuck inside! Needless to say, I scanned the cupboards to see what I could create and Apple Pie Drizzled Cookies came to mind. I’ve created an apple pie based cookie and then drizzled a little ‘icing’ on the cookie for taste and looks. I think we often want what we can not have and now I’m having cookies because I can!
Making the perfect icing is unique to each batch due to the consistency of the coconut manna. You want the coconut manna soft to blend together. Here is a few problem solving tricks when making coconut manna icing. If icing is too thick add a little more coconut milk. If icing is too runny add a little more coconut manna.
Apple Pie Drizzled Cookies
1/2 cup coconut oil
2 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup + 1 tbsp coconut flour
pinch of salt
1 cup finely diced apple cubes
2 tsp butter (can replace with coconut oil)
3 tbsp maple syrup (omit for 21dsd)
1. Place butter in skillet on medium heat and melt.
2. Add apple cubes and cook until soft, but not mushy. Then remove from heat.
3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
4. In a medium bowl whisk together the eggs, coconut oil, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and a pinch of salt.
5. Sift in the coconut flour and mix together well.
6. Once apples are cool, add to mixture to create the apple pie cookie. If you add the apples hot the batter will become very runny.
7. Using a cookie scoop, place cookies on a baking sheet about 1 inch apart.
8. Bake cookies for 9-11 minutes. Remove heat and allow cookies to cool prior to icing.
1/4 cup coconut milk (from can)
2 tbsp coconut manna
1/4 tsp vanilla
1. Place ingredients in a bowl and mix together well. (see above)
2. Drizzle icing over cookies.
3. Store cookies in the refrigerator.
