Lemon Cookies : Low Carb

Slightly softer than many 'shop bought' cookie's, and almost certainly containing fewer carbs, you may like to make a batch of these lemon cookies and enjoy one with an afternoon cup of tea!

They are an idea from Ewelina
and if you are a regular reader here you may well have seen her smiling face before.

Ingredients (make 25 cookies):

1.6g carb per cookie

120g ground almond
60g soya flour
100g xylitol (powdered)
1 egg
40g coconut oil (melted but not hot)
½ tsp. bicarbonate soda
Zest of 1 lemon
Juice of ½ lemon

Please see cooking instructions here

Did You Know:
Soya flour is pale yellow in colour, with a nutty flavour and aroma, it is made by grinding roasted yellow soya beans. It is available from health food shops. However, if you want to avoid GM foods, check the label carefully, and buy organic soya flour which is GM-free.
Store soya flour an airtight container and keep it refrigerated.
Soya flour is extremely rich in protein, so it can be added to any food to enhance its nutritional content. It is often used in commercial products such as crisps and sausages. For the home cook, it is valuable for baking, making flat-breads, and thickening sauces. It is often combined with wheat or other grain flours before use.

Details about soya flour taken from here but there is also more information about soy flour (soybean) at Wikipedia here which you may like to read.

We bring a variety of recipe ideas to this blog, not all may be suitable for you.
If you may have any food allergies, or underlying health issues, these must always be taken into account.

However, I hope you may have some spare time soon to make some cookies. Then why not sit down and enjoy one with a cup of tea ... or perhaps you would prefer a coffee?

All the best Jan

Yum, they look delicious, I'm a big fan of anything lemony and I like soft biscuits. I bet they're very moreish.

I have been cooking with almond and coconut flours but haven't tried the soya yet. I will have to check if the store we buy our other flours in have that one, I haven't come across a recipe before now calling for it.

Hello Jan!
It was lovely to hear from yoU! I apologise for not visiting- I've been away on a cruise for 2 weeks and prior to thaat was in France and had no computer for either. This sounds a nice recipe. I do like Soya so I would be most intrigued to try these!
