  • 2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil or butter  I use expeller pressed, no coconut flavor
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4  cup raw honey add a tablespoon or two for a sweeter cookie
  • 1 tablespoon GF vanilla extract

For coating

  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1.5 tablespoons coconut sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Mix all ingredients.
  • Form batter into about 12 balls and press onto cookie sheet (helpful to use parchment paper).
  • Sprinkle the topping over the cookies.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes (my oven cooks slowly).


  • To get the perfect texture I recommend hand mixing the dough, as opposed to beating it with a mixer. 
  • Make sure your butter and eggs are at room temperature. This step makes it easier to mix the butter by hand and also benefits the final cookie texture.
  • Check that your baking soda is fresh. Expired baking ingredients will compromise the final cookie.
  • Omit cinnamon to make sugar cookies or add some Chai Spice to make them Chai Snickerdoodle Cookies
