Ingredients (makes 20 cookies):

Pizzelle iron (I have a Cuisinart non stick pizzelle iron)

1/2 cup Nutiva shortening (this is a mixture of palm, red palm, and coconut oil) – sub palm shortening if you can’t find this stuff

1/3 cup date sugar (I used Bob’s Red Mill)

1/3 cup Monk fruit in the raw

3 large eggs

1 cup almond flour (this is the blanched stuff)

1/2 cup arrowroot powder

1/3 cup coconut flour

2 tbl. + 2 tsp. tapioca flour

1 tsp. baking powder

2 tbl. pure anise extract (If using anise oil, use 1/2 tbl)

1/8 tsp. Himalayan sea salt


Heat pizzelle maker.  In stand mixer with paddle attachment, cream together shortening with date sugar and monk fruit.  Add eggs one at a time.  Add remaining ingredients.  Use 2 tbl. batter to make each cookie.  Press to desired crispiness.  I do not grease my iron and no, nothing ever sticks.
