  • 6 tablespoons vegan cream cheese (softened)
  • 1 flax egg (softened)
  • 1/3 cup Swerve Sweetener (or other granulated sweetener)
  • 1/2 cup chickpea flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

  • Mix in the flax egg egg, until thoroughly combined.
  • Mix in chickpea flour, and coconut flour, making sure there are no lumps.
  • Spoon mixture onto a cookie sheet (with either a silicon mat, or parchment paper).
  • These puff up a little bit, but don't really spread, so make them look like you want them to come out! And be sure to leave a little space between them (about an inch).
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes, or just until they start to turn golden at the sides.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool for at least a half hour.
  • I chilled them a bit in the fridge before frosting.
  • To make the frosting - cream together butter, cream cheese and vanilla.
  • Mix in Swerve (pulverize it in a coffee grinder first, to smooth it out) and food dye.
  • Frost away!
