Coconut Almond Crisp Holiday Baking

Are you iced in today?  Mark has chipped out the driveway and we’ll try to get out in a little bit, but it looks like we’re in for really cold weather and more freezing rain :/

So while Mark was working outside, I made up a batch of these coconut almond crisps from over on alldayidreamaboutfood.  I did sub some sugar-free pancake syrup for the molasses.   She’s right when she says they will burn quickly if you don’t have them in the top third of the oven.  Mine didn’t turn out as thin as hers and they may be a tad chewier than crispy but they are really good!  My recipe made thirteen cookies.

“Only” thirteen would have been my comment back in my sugar days, but now it’s not that big of an issue.  Now thirteen is plenty.  Yes.  Life is different when you’ve been living low carb/high fat for almost a year and it’s really really different when your size 12 pants are starting to get too big!

I hope you have good weather where you live today.  And I hope you’re having a merry-getting-ready-for-Christmas time too.  And if you’ve been unhappy about your weight or your health, think about giving yourself the gift of keto for 2017.  You’ll be so glad you did.
