These are yummy sandwich cookies with a creamy coconut filling.  Low carb, gluten free goodness!  And my favourite sugar substitute erythritol again.  You CAN eat delicious cookies without fear of the scales the next morning or a sudden sugar rush! 

I like the filling as it reinforces my love of coconut and all that is good with it!  I am using xanthan gum here for a binding agent.  I sometimes use this in my pastry recipes and purchase this from my local organic health store.  For the ground erythritol I simply process granulated erythritol in a blender until it looks like icing sugar.    I may play around with these cookies too…am thinking something ginger with either a lemon or lime filling…mmmm..

      Hi Donna, I’ve updated the recipe with the nutritional information. A cookie should be about 4g net carbs each.

      This should make about 8 thick ones…you could squeeze about 10 out if you made them flatter.
