Love Sugar Cookies

     When love is in the air, Sugar Cookies are in the tummy.  And my Love Sugar Cookies can be yours guilt free for only 74 calories, 4g net carbs and 6g protein.  So delicious, so sugar free, so gluten free, so filled with Valentines fun!  Show your honey you care by whipping up a batch today...who am I kidding, just make some for yourself and if anyone else walks in the room offer them one...just to be polite...not because you want to share.  Tis the season for all things heart shaped!  ;)

1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil, melted
1/3 cup Almond Flour

Food Coloring, if desired
Sprinkles, if desired (not included in macros)

     Grind Oats to powder in Magic Bullet or blender, add to mixing bowl along with remaining first set of ingredients, stir til well incorporated, set in fridge to chill for a couple hours.  When ready, weigh dough by 1oz portions, should yield 9.  Spray a heart shaped cookie cutter with Pam, lay on Silpat lined cookie sheet and press dough inside cutter to form heart, gently remove cutter and repeat 8 more times, making sure Hearts are spread equally apart on cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.  Cookies will be soft initially, but will stiffen as cools.  Meanwhile, mix Cream Cheese and Monk Fruit with Food Coloring to desired color, add to baggie, snip corner and decorate equally as desired when cookies have cooled.  Garnish with Sprinkles if desired.  Enjoy  :)
