A Simple Kwanzaa Cookie
This recipe makes a delicious and guilt-free cookie for your family tradition. It is super simple with only five main ingredients, and is healthy too! The ingredients are all-natural, and higher in fiber and protein. The cookies are also gluten-free, vegan, paleo, and lower-glycemic. Plus, you have the option to use flours made from alternatives to white flour, like rice, beans, nuts, or tubers (cassava, manioc, tapioca, yucca). African superfood grains can be used, such as millet, sorghum, or fonio.
