My AIP Carob Cookies will satisfy your sweet tooth but not derail your AIP diet. These cookies are soft and chewy with the texture of (real) cookies. These little round bits of deliciousness are perfectly acceptable on the AIP elimination phase. No eggs, no nuts, no dairy! In this recipe I use carob powder in place of chocolate powder. Carob often replaces chocolate in AIP recipes because chocolate is not allowed and carob mimics the flavor and texture of coco powder.
I have used beef gelatin in place of the egg and no one would be the wiser! Just a reminder, this recipe only makes 10-12 cookies, so you might want to make two batches because they are THAT good!

In a bowl whisk together the tigernut flour, arrowroot powder, coconut flour, baking soda, carob powder and coconut sugar. Set aside.
In another bowl mix together the coconut sugar, palm shorting and coconut oil. Set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk together the gelatin and cool water until combined. Add the boiling water and whisk until frothy. Add the bloomed gelatin to the coconut sugar, shorting and oil and mix thoroughly.
Now add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until it has formed a dough. Don't worry about over mixing.
Scoop cookies onto the cookie sheet and lightly press down. Bake 5-8 minutes. Let the cookies slightly cool on cookie sheet and then transfer to a cooling rack.
