Hi everybody! Sadie here. I am so grateful to be guest posting here on Tina Turbin’s website, sharing this delicious recipe with all of you. I am a 14-year-old baker and lover of scrumptious, wholesome food. My Paleo Christmas Cutout Cookies are a favorite of mine and just so fun to make. We have now truly entered the holiday season, which means it’s time for all the Christmas recipes! The perfect way to kick off this season is with baking these Paleo Christmas Cutout Cookies. These are scrumptious. They taste like shortbread, and are mildly sweet. Their amazing texture comes from protein-full almond flour. With these cookies you can enjoy all the fun of cutting out and decorating Christmas cookies, minus all the nasty sugar conventional ones have! My family had such a great time cutting out shapes for these and devouring them, and I’m sure yours will too.
Who am I? Well, in a nutshell as I mentioned already my name is Sadie and I started eating gluten-free/Paleo when I was nine years old. It changed my life. I went from being sick and tired all the time, to having loads of energy and health! So now, baking healthy treats is my passion. I adore scouring Farmers’ Markets and hunting for fresh, seasonal ingredients to experiment with in the kitchen. I am excited to share my favorite recipes that I create with you on my website GoodiesAgainstTheGrain.com! All the recipes on my site are Paleo and gluten free, always. That means they are free of gluten, grains, soy, dairy, and refined sugar. Through my clean eating and healthier goodies, I am showing the world how simple and delicious healthy eating can be.
Tina encourages and supports so many women and girls to be the best they can be and helps so many people with nutritional points, cooking, baking and health matters. I connected up with Tina so easily as we have so much in common. We really have had fun working together and I hope we can do even more. I also encourage others to do like I did. Take the bull by the horns and go for your dreams and live the healthy life you deserve to live. We can learn from our body and by all means listen to your body. I did and I am a healthier and happier person as a result. Tina and I both really enjoyed sharing this with you.
Have a beautiful day and I really do hope you enjoy this recipe. For more of my healthy treat recipes, visit me on my site or social medias. All my socials can be found under my delicious paleo cookie recipe below.
Thank you Tina. This was so much fun! Happy holidays everyone!
