Course: Dessert
Servings: 12 large cookies
Author: Caitlin Iles
  • ½ cup room temperature butter or coconut oil
  • ½ cup coconut palm sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1.5 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 and ½ cup almond flour
  • ½ cup tapioca flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. sea salt
  • 2 tbsp. coconut palm sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl cream together butter and coconut palm sugar.
  3. Once mixed, crack in the egg and add the vanilla. Mix again until thoroughly combined.
  4. In a separate bowl stir together almond flour, tapioca flour, baking powder, and sea salt.
  5. Pour dry ingredients into wet and mix thoroughly.
  6. Set in the fridge a few minutes to harden. It will still be somewhat of a wetter dough. While setting combine coconut palm sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  7. Remove from fridge and roll into balls. My suggestion is to coat hands in coconut oil and then wet them periodically to keep the dough from sticking too much. Feel free to lick any extra dough off your fingers!
  8. Roll each ball into the cinnamon mixture and place evenly spaced on the baking sheet.
  9. Once all balls are coated gently squish each one with the flat bottom of a drinking glass.
  10. Place in the oven for 11 minutes.

  11. Remove from oven and let cool a couple of minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a cooling rack.

  12. Enjoy!
