You may also swap out another milk if you prefer. In addition, you may also substitute ginger, cinnamon, or maca for cardamon powder.

3. Cordyceps Butter Biscuits

This final recipe pairs perfectly with any one of the delicious drinks that we listed above. These cookies are Paleo-friendly and Autoimmune-Friendly, as well as packed with powerful, energy-boosting extract from the fungus Cordyceps.


  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking flour

  • 1/2 Tbsp sea salt
  • 1/2 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup cold ghee
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 eggs 1 Tbsp honey

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Combine all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl, whisking together until a homogenous mix is formed. Add the ghee to the dry ingredients, stirring well. It might seem a little bit clumpy.

In a different bowl, mix together the wet ingredients. Once fully combined, mix that mixture in with the dry ingredients. This forms a thick dough when combined. Lay out some parchment paper on your cookie sheet, and then start dropping balls of dough onto it using a spoon.

You will eventually get around 6 cookies that are between the sizes of a medium to a large. Bake for 20 minutes, or until your cookies are browned. Cool for 10-15 minutes and then dig in!
