Homemade Arrowroot Cookies

Since I’ve always been a big lover of arrowroot cookies, I decided to attempt to make my own. I was very happy with how they turned out! The first batch I made contained cane sugar, canola oil and cow’s milk which made the cookies taste like boredom. I replaced the cane sugar with maple syrup, canola with coconut oil and cow’s milk for almond milk and the result was amazing and a lot closer to the store bought ones in taste!

1 1/2 cup arrowroot flour (can also be called powder or starch)
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/3 cup almond milk
1/3 cup water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg

  1. Mix dry and wet ingredients separately
  2. Add your wet mix to your dry mix and combine well
  3. Using a non-stick cupcake pan, scoop exactly 1 teaspoon of batter at the bottom of each cupcake holes then spread the batter around to make sure that the batter spreads evenly
  4. Bake at 350°F for 5 minutes then, with a toothpick, flip each cookie and bake another 5 minutes
  5. Let cool on a rack completely before devouring

Adding more than 1 teaspoon of batter will make a soft-baked cookie which wasn’t bad but I wanted a crispy cookie which is why I made them thin.
