Company’s Coming, Don’t Panic: Nut Butter CookiesBy KerryAnn
From time to time, I get an e-mail from someone in a panic. It usually looks something like this:
HELP! I’ve got company coming to visit and we just had to eliminate gluten/soy/dairy/eggs/25 different foods! I need something quick and simple, because now I’ve got to start cleaning house to be ready for them to arrive!
Many conventional meals that Americans recognize are traditional foods and can be served to company without them batting an eye, even if you have many allergies in the family. In this situation, I always recommend you go back to basics. Here’s a list of possible meals to consider.
- Roast chicken, sweet potatoes and a salad
- Beef roast with potatoes, onions and carrots
- Hamburgers on the grill with potato salad and baked beans
- Pork loin and apples in the crock-pot
- A pot of chili
- Barbecue anything, on the stove, on the grill or in the crock-pot
Provide easy and straightforward side dishes like white rice- avoid the bread if you have allergies. Put butter on the table, or mayo if it applies. For dessert, make a blender custard like the one in our Valentine’s Day issue, a pudding, or a quick bread from coconut flour. Depending on your allergies, the nut butter blondies or simple nut butter cookies are great, too. Whatever you decide, make sure it is sweet enough that your guests won’t reject it.
From the Menu Mailer
2 eggs, beaten
½ cup nut butter
½ cup rapadura (or ¼ cup rapadura and stevia to taste)
¼ cup coconut flour, optional
1 tsp baking powder
Combine all ingredients. Drop by tablespoons on a greased cookie sheet and press down lightly with a fork. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Makes 1 dozen.
This recipe works well with any nut butter. We really like sunflower or peanut butter in these cookies.
