Brazilian Corn Cookies

I have another post from Bob’s Red Mill, y’all!

Meet –  Brazilian Corn Cookies.

So, if you’re child is doing a report on Brazil, make these cookies.

If you like corn, make these cookies.

If you like corn meal mush (ME!!!), make these cookies.

If you have brown hair, ma- okay, okay. 

They alsooo happen to be GLUTEN FREE!


I’m not on the gluten-free bandwagon, but do know that gluten-free stuff is good for you!

They’re pretty good too. Not too sweet, and made with wholesome, high quality ingredients.

Ingredients you can trust.

No, I was not paid to say that. I just really like Bob’s Red Mill products.

Last week I made the S’more Cookies, and next week I’ll showcase Hazelnut Shortbread.

Look at that gorgeous dough! Made in my new favorite OXO mixing bowl with a rubber bottom.

I LOVE OXO! Seriously, well designed products.

Aren’t they pretty little things?

(Here’s my favorite cookie scoop: Cookie Dough Scoop with Push Button (Orange))

I didn’t add the coconut because I was out… that means another batch will be in the works!

They totally remind me of old timey cookies my grandma would have made. They were often made by Sioux Indians because of the abundance of corn in that area, did ya know that?

So…. if your child is doing a report on Sioux Indians….

~ Peace, Love, and Old Timey Cookies Y’all

    I have never heard of these cookies! I’m intrigued. Plus, the addition of coconut could really make these guys interesting. Love it!

    Cute spatula! And yes, I most definitely have to make these cookies. And then eat like 12 before bed since that’s the best time to eat them 🙂
