Spiced Shortbread Cookies without the fat!

I decided to make some more cookies for the children (ok me) to eat. After reading about using garbanzo flour, I have been dreaming up some recipes to use with it.

So late one night while laying in my bed my mind kept drifting to cookies and what kind I should make. Then it hit me “Spiced Shortbread Cookies”. I figured that using the garbanzo flour might give me the shortbread type consistency. So at 5:30 a.m I hopped into the kitchen and started my creation. And best of all, I decided to try it without any oil!

Ingredients:

1 cup cassava flour

2cups garbanzo flour

1 1/2 tsp nutmeg powder. If you like a more spiced flavour use 2 tsp. I prefer it with 2

2 tsp cinnamon powder

2tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1 cup almond milk

1 tbsp vanilla extract ( I would really like to try using vanilla beans, but I a feverishly searching for them but to no avail)

**1  cup coconut sugar. If hoping to use a liquid sweetener, reduce the almond milk by the amount of liquid sweetener.

Method:

Mix the dry ingredients together except the sugar. Add the sugar, vanilla extract and milk and mix thoroughly. The batter should be thick and NOT pourable.

Spoon mixture onto a greased baking tray. Bake for 15 minutes or until cookies are dry to touch, but still soft.
