It’s the time of year for all things sugar, cookies, and cakes. I know how difficult it can be to manage a gluten free lifestyle during the holidays, so I’m doing my best to bring you all the paleofied treats and recreations I can. Recreating traditional flour recipes into a paleo recipe is getting easier and easier thanks to Otto’s Cassava Flour, but finding a packaged paleo powdered sugar to make those perfect cookies isn’t as easy.
Lucky for you powdered, or confectioners sugar is super simple to make. Grab your food processor and you’ll have some in no time. This recipe uses arrowroot starch in place of traditional corn starch. You could also sub tapioca starch.
Paleo Powdered Sugar
- 1 cup coconut palm sugar
- 1 TBS arrowroot or tapioca starch
- Pour coconut sugar and arrowroot starch into food processor or high speed blender. Close and blend until finely ground, about 30-45 seconds.
- Let sugar dust settle before opening. Store in a glass air tight container.
