Getting tired of melba toast or grissini breadsticks during Phase 2? Well, this recipe is a perfect and approved alternative! In addition, many people who have Celiac Disease or are gluten-intolerant cannot have the two form of carbs that are approved during Phase 2, thus this recipe is a great gluten-free option! Head over to Kimber’s blog to check out many more HCG-Approved recipes!

Cinnamon Sugar Cookies
In a bowl add the following:

– 1/2 c warm water

– 1 pkg yeast ( 2 1/2 t)

– 1 teaspoon of all-natural sweetener (stevia)

– 1/4 c gluten free flour (We like Namaste GF flour the best)

All to sit for 5 minutes, called proofing.

– Add 1 more cup of GF flour (possibly more)

– 2 Tablespoons of olive oil

– 1/2 teaspoon of salt

– 1/4 c of powdered stevia.

Mix well and add more warm water a tablespoon at a time until it forms a dough.  Allow to rise loosely covered for 1 hour. Roll into 1-2 T balls. With a little more GF flour, roll on a flat surface into rods. Transfer to a parchment covered baking sheet. Then wrap into spiral circles. Sprinkle with stevia & cinnamon.  Allow to rise for another 30 minutes. Bake in preheated oven of 400° for 10-20 minutes, turning once. Store in a tupperware container or ziploc bag.

  1. Realistically this is natural besauce it’s probably been drummed into you from a child; e.g when you cry parents give you a biscuit to calm you down. Also foods like chocolate release endorphines which make you happy.Solutuions; exercise does release the same endorphines and although it is unlikely you will go up and do a 20min run it would be worth considering as it would also clear your head.- maybe go on a walk instead? offer to take a friends dog out or something just to give you something to do.- solve the stressful problem will stop all of this- engage yourself in something else that you enjoy to take your mind off eating and the stressful situation e.g. going to see friends, watching a film, reading a book, playing games, shopping, browsing kitten videos on youtube etc. – when you are in the kitchen with your fingers lingering over biscuits, chocolate etc, just REMIND YOURSELF that YOU are in control of what your hands and mouth are doing and of your brain. – if you do need to nibble get apples, celery, carrots etc and have some of those. I find cutting up fruit before eating it is good as it lengthens the process rather than making it a quick binge; gives you thinking time, and often by the time i’ve cut it up and put it out i realise i don’t want to eat it anyway and can put it in the fridge ready for my next impulsive desire to eat. GOOD LUCK!
