Lemon Wafers

The kids are back at school, and AK's Kitchen is in high gear, cranking out lunches and snacks. On the assembly line, a batch of lemon wafers to fill the lunch boxes.

This recipe calls for coconut flour -- which is a high-fiber, high-flavour alternative to wheat flour -- plus four other common ingredients. The end product is a cookie that delivers a jolt of tartness and sweetness, an ideal snack to revive a drowsy brain.

Juice and rind of 1 large lemon
4 eggs
1 cup sugar/ agave/ maple syrup
1/2 cup canola/ vegetable oil
3/4 cup coconut flour, sifted

Mix all the wet ingredients.
Stir in the coconut flour.
Let the batter sit for 10 minutes while the oven heats to 375 degrees.
Using a tablespoon, drop the batter onto a greased cookie sheet.    
Bake for 15 minutes.
Yields about 2 dozen wafers.
