Hi friends! I’m Jess of the hilariously, similarly titled blog, Jessica Eats Real Food, not to be confused with the website you’re currently visiting, Real Food with Jessica. Jessica has really graciously allowed me to pop over and to share a new recipe with you that I hope you’ll just love! Over on my own website, we do lots of Paleo + Whole30 cooking too. I’d love to see you there!
Let’s get to the important stuff: Sprinkle Cookies! You know how you sometimes manage to find the perfect cookie that’s crunchy on the edges and soft + gooey on the inside? Lucky us, that’s this cookie!
And the best part is that the ingredient list is incredibly simple - just 8 ingredients including salt, baking powder and extract and all that’s involved is a little mixing and rolling. So easy.
The recipe for these Paleo Sprinkle Cookies actually doesn’t require any flour at all. They are made from a cashew butter base which helps with the incredible texture and also ensures that the cookies are both grain and gluten free.
Coconut sugar adds natural sweetness, and the sprinkles ensure a satisfying crunch.
Now, for the sprinkles, there are all sorts of homemade paleo recipes online. However, mainstream sprinkles haven’t quite caught up yet and do tend to still contain white sugar and/or cornstarch. Feel free to choose whatever option feels right for you and your family. Color Kitchen is what I use and feel best about.
These cookies are the perfect treat! They’re quick, easy, and taste like a really good sugar cookie...only better!
