Yes, I’m still pregnant, still in Prodromal Labor… consistent contractions all day and night, but that’s just the “problem.” They’re not getting more intense, so… I’m left in limbo.

And what do people in limbo do?

Bake cookies!

(And make tomato basil sauce out of the TONS of tomatoes from our garden, but I didn’t take pictures of that.)


The Clever Mommy used my grain-free muffin/cupcake things as a jumping-off point for making yummy cookies. I, in turn, used her recipe as a jumping-off point for these cookies. I don’t have any almond butter in the house right now, so they’re made with peanut butter (the kind that’s just peanuts ground-up, no other ingredients). But I’m sure they’d work either way. These cookies are also sugar-free other than what’s in the chocolate chips (but you have complete control over how much chocolate or what % you use).

Grain-Free Gluten-Free Sugar-Free Cookies of Awesome

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

In a mixing bowl, combine:

  • 1/2 cup nut butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 4 packets of Truvia
  • 4 heaping teaspoons unsweetened dried shredded coconut
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • dark chocolate chips, as many as you feel like

Drop heaping teaspoonsful of dough onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet (I got 18 cookies out of this recipe) and bake 10-12 minutes. Cool and enjoy!


These cookies are really really tasty and feel like a treat, but as you can see they’re made with wholesome ingredients you can feel good about eating (or feeding to your kids). No nutritionally-void flour or insulin-spiking sugar in these babies. Have at it!
