     If you are looking to try a few plant based things this year, I have an idea of where you can start!  This is a very simple, one bowl, child friendly recipe.  Each of the 8 cookies are only 75 calories, 13.5g carbs, .7g fiber, 9g sugar alcohol, 3.8g net carbs, .8g protein and 6g fat.  Make them rounds, hearts or any other shape…just make sure to make them!  😉

Ingredients for 8 Frosted Cookies~
2 Tablespoons Vegan Butter (I used Earth Balance), softened to room temperature
1/2 cup Oat Flour (I ground 2/3 cup Oats in Magic Bullet to powder)
2 Tablespoon Lakanto Classic or Golden Monk Fruit ~ use code Paige20 at checkout for discount (use more if desired)
1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Vanilla
Scant dash Cinnamon

2 Tablespoons Vegan Butter (I used Earth Balance), softened to room temperature
1/4 cup Lakanto Confectioners Monk Fruit~use code Paige20 at checkout for discount
Scant dash Almond Extract, optional
Scant dash Butter Extract, optional
Food coloring, if desired
Sprinkles, if desired

     Add first set of ingredients to bowl and stir till well combined, divide into 8 equal portions, should be approximately 1/2oz per serving.  Place each on silpat lined cookie sheet, if rounds are desired, slightly press down into circle shape.  If hearts are preferred, lay heart shaped cookie cutter on silpat and press dough inside, then gently lift the cookie cutter away, repeat with remaining dough.  Bake at 350 for 7 minutes.  Meanwhile, stir together second set of ingredients til smooth, when cookies have cooled, frost as desired.  Enjoy  🙂
