Protein Sugar Cookies – Gluten Free!

I’m not against grains, heck I eat them with every meal but if I can bake with coconut flour I do because it doesn’t leave me feeling bloated afterwards as when I bake with regular flour blends. I’m far from having a gluten intolerance but I do notice how I feel different after eating a white baguette for example than a cup of quinoa. It seems that as the years go by its become easier for people with celiac or gluten allergies to eat the same foods as someone on a typical diet.

Today I had already had a snack but was bored and still hungry (surprise surprise) so I came up with these 5 ingredient protein cookies , Yep only 5 ingredients! This whole intuitive eating thing has got my taste buds going crazy for all kinds of things! Today just happened to be sugar cookies! Sadly I had only one lonely egg left so that’s why this batch is so small, but hey if you’re watching your carbs this may just be perfect for you!
