Years ago I discovered the creative idea of boot tracks cookies in a magazine, and I used the recipe for years. It is a really fun and easy Christmas cookie that I have modified to be paleo.
All my favorite recipes of the past have to be modified for our preferences today. These paleo boot tracks cookies are kid pleasers because the whole picture of boot tracks in the snow makes for a festive and unique cookie.
Even better, with no oven, these are a snap to throw together and serve in under 10 minutes. My kids love sprinkling the “snow” over the top, but it is totally optional. You could also drizzle melted dark chocolate or white chocolate (or both!)
- ½ cup butter (coconut oil should work well too)
- ⅔ cup granulated sugar (I used palm sugar, may use part stevia too)
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons avocado oil (this prevents the cookies from sticking to the iron)
- ¼ teaspoon sea salt
- ¾ cup almond flour
- ½ cup tapioca flour
- ¼ cup cocoa powder
- Preheat a waffle iron.
- In the bowl of a mixer, beat the butter and sugar until creamy.
- Beat in the eggs, vanilla, and oil.
- With the mixer still running, sprinkle in the sea salt, followed by the three remaining ingredients.
- You may stir in some white or dark chocolate chips if desired.
- Drop about 2 teaspoons of thick batter into each waffle segment (ungreased). Cook for about 1 minute until set.
- Remove with a fork to a cooling rack and continue until the batter is gone.
- Drizzle with melted white or dark chocolate OR sift some powdered sugar over the top to look like snow!
