Quick Dairy, Grain and Gluten free Cookies

It has been a while since I posted a new recipe and I am finally catching up with the final months of my Master’s degree. This gave me less time to try new recipes, however, I have been re-using recipes and eating healthy. I often update my social media pages on Facebook and Instagram, with how I’m keeping up with healthy eating.

New recipe idea

We recently attended a house warming party and we were served with freshly baked, cinnamon flavoured homemade cookies. They tasted great and I immediately asked for the recipe since I always like to bake or prepare healthy snacks. I made my own version of the original recipe since the original one contained spelt flour. I also slightly changed the rest of the ingredients and used ingredients from my kitchen. I had a pleasant week with one of these gluten-free cookie a day for my tea time :)
