GRAIN FREE RASPBERRY BREAKFAST COOKIES these are grain free cookies-meet-scones-meet-muffins, and they make the perfect breakfast treat or dessert item.
Often times on the SCD diet, breakfast doubles as dessert (and vice versa). Such is the case with these cookies I’ve devised. Honestly, I was thinking at the outset that they would be scones, however the Baking Gods had other plans for me, and they turned out to be more so a mix between a cookie and muffin and a scone. But is that not the best of both/all worlds??? These taste light and fluffy, they’re soft naturally but you can crisp them up by throwing one in the toaster oven for a few minutes before you want to eat it, which definitely makes it all that more enjoyable to eat with your morning coffee. Like many SCD baked goods, they’re best stored in the fridge as well, which undoubtedly will help them keep their firmness too.
I used frozen raspberries to make these raspberry breakfast cookies, although I imagine fresh would be just as good, and equally, you could throw out the raspberries altogether and opt for another berry of your choosing: I will try blackberries and strawberries down the line. You could even get crazy and try mixing in an assortment of all three berries (!) but I digress.
These call for almond flour, I’ve grown fond of using almond flour for treats such as scones and cookies, however I’ve found coconut flour best for cakes and muffins. The reason being, that almond flour has a certain denseness to it that I do not find best for muffins which can sometimes already be dense– you can lighten them up by using coconut flour.
Whether you love berries or just want to try something new to bring into your breakfast rotation, definitely give these a try and tag me/let me know on Instagram if you do! @Grainfreee.
