Lime Meltaway Cookies.
As always my recipes are grain free, refined sugar free, and many are dairy free. This is the diet that many of us with autoimmune illnesses or allergies use to improve our general health. It has sure improved mine.

Do you ever procrastinate or put things off? I have been doing that lately. I need to focus and get back on track. I am back at the gym about 4-5 days a week. I am almost ready for Christmas. I still need to do some grocery shopping for our Smorgasbord on Christmas Eve. I know I will probably cheat and have some mashed potatoes. Funny thing is I am from Idaho and in the past have not been particularly fond of mashed potatoes. But, when it because something you are not supposed to eat it soon becomes a food you miss. What a silly human I am.

I know that this time of year can be a time of feeling left out or excluded because of the vast amount of foods you can not eat. It can make you feel isolated. I hope that my recipes will make it so that more people can share food and begin socializing with family and friends again. Maybe even some family and friends will add one or two of my recipes to their repertoire.

This year I am more comfortable going to potluck parties as now I have things to bring and am not as tempted to eat food that I should not. I can also bring my own crackers that I could add cheese too.

I think it would be fun to one day be a mentor of restaurants that might want to add a grain free item or two to their menu. That would be fun. It would be nice if someday there were grain free and refined sugar free restaurants where everyone could enjoy something good to eat.

I absolutely love lime flavored items. This is a revamped cookie recipe that I used to make. I have adapted it to be grain free. I must say that even my family prefers this cookie to the one with grain flour in it. This cookie is so good. They are hard not to want to eat them all at once. I am making my family pace themselves so that we can have some for Christmas.

This cookie uses powdered monk fruit and powdered coconut sugar. To make the either of the sugars simply pour the amount of sugar you need into a high speed, high-quality blender and blend until powdered. Carefully when lifting the top of as there will be powder in the air.
