Ingredients

Dry ingredients:

  • 1 cup (120 g) almond flour both blanched and natural flour work
  • 3 tablespoons tapioca starch or use cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon all spice
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar or powdered sugar

Wet ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon solid coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons molasses
  • 2 tablespoons cane sugar for rolling

Instructions

  • In a bowl mix all the dry ingredients until well combined.  Press and mix so that the almond flour lumps are broken down. In another bowl, add the oil and melt in the microwave. Then add the maple syrup and molasses.  Mix well.
  • Add the wet into the dry and mix until the well incorporated. the dough should be really soft.
  • If the dough is a little crumbly or dry, add one to two teaspoons more maple syrup and mix in. Let the dough chill for 5 minutes.
  • Then the remove from the fridge.  Add 2 tablespoons of cane sugar to a bowl. Use a scoop to get even sizeed scoop if you like. (For the large cookies I use about 2.5 tablespoons worth dough) Roll into a smooth ball, then press to flatten a bit then dip it in the cane sugar. Place on parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Then bake at  330 degrees F(165 C) for 11 or 13 minutes. (Less time for smaller cookies) . Remove from the oven. The cookies will be soft when they come out, but it will harden as they sit.
  • If using a small scoop, you can roll the balls in sugar and bake without flattening for smaller fatter cookies. For larger cookies, flatten the dough

Notes

  • For Oilfree: omit the coconut oil, use 1 tablespoon more maple syrup
  • For Nutfree make my molasses cookies. These are not Glutenfree.

Ingredients:

  • these are grain-free & gluten-free, made with almond flour, both blanched and natural flour work
  • tapioca starch is added for binding and for soft texture we love but you can use cornstarch as well
  • spices: ginger, cinnamon, and allspice. Gingerbread spice works too
  • they are sweetened with brown sugar, maple syrup and molasses which gives them a nice golden color and caramelized taste and lends these a chewy texture
  •  solid coconut oil is used as the fat here – use refined for a neutral taste

Tips:

  • To store almond flour cookies for up to three long months, pop them in a freezer-safe airtight container and place in the freezer.
  • To get the cookies all the same size, I use a cookie scoop
  • if you are ok with gluten , use all purpose flour instead of tapioca starch
  • For Oilfree: omit the coconut oil, use 1 tablespoon more maple syrup
  • For Nutfree make my molasses cookies. These are not Glutenfree.
