Love Potions – Mariel’s Blisscuits
How would you like your life to be filled with bliss? Or at least have you and your loved one’s tummy filled with Mariel Hemingway’s Blisscuits? Mariel shares her special recipe in her new book, Mariel’s Kitchen: Simple Ingredients for a Delicious and Satisfying Life.
2 cups almond meal
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons whey protein isolate powder
1 cup plus 1 tablespoon Xylosweet
1/2 cup finely shredded coconut
3 tablespoons coconut flour
2 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
2 1/4 teaspoons xanthan gum
1 cup coconut oil
3 large egg whites
1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon almond extract
1. Preheat oven to 300-degrees Farenheit. Cover two large baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
2. Place all dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix together well. In a medium bowl, whisk together coconut oil, egg whites, and vanilla and almond extracts. Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix together well.
3. Roll out dough to 1/4 inch thick and cut into 2-inch squares. Or form into 2-inch patties, 1/4 inch thick, with your hands. Place on prepared baking sheets and bake until golden, 15-20 minutes.
4. Let cool before storing in an airtight container for up to 4 days or freeze for up to a month.
Suggestion from Mariel: “Divide dough into 1-cup amounts and wrap tightly in plastic wrap, then in foil. Blisscuit dough can be frozen for up to 2 months. This way you can defrost a cup at a time and bake fresh Blisscuits whenever you like.”
