Vanilla cookies

Vanilla cookies


  • 2 cups almond flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1-2 teaspoons pure vanilla powder
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter or coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup pure honey


  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper
  • Melt butter or coconut oil
  • Mix honey and melted butter until uniform
  • Stir dry ingredients, add honey-butter mixture and mix well.
  • Cool the dough in the refrigerator for 10 minutes
  • Shape uniform size balls (a cookie scoop can help) and lightly flatten as you place them on baking paper, leaving generous space between the cookies.
  • Bake until only the edges start to brown lightly, about 11-12 minutes.  At this point the cookies will look puffed and the center will still have a lighter color.
  • Turn off the oven and let the cookies stay in the oven 2-4 more minutes, watching carefully that they will not darken too much.
  • Take the cookies out of the oven and let cool.  The cookies will be soft and chewy after cooling.

Play In the kitchen

Replace the 2 cups of almond flour with a mix of 1 ½ cups almond flour and ½ cup fine shredded coconut flakes (or any nut flour mix totaling 2 cups).
Play with different cookie flavors. Instead of vanilla try cinnamon or ginger powder, or a few drops of mint or orange natural flavors, lemon zest, etc.
Marry two cookies with a filling layer: try different fillings like honey-coconut cream or ice-cream. Flavor the filling to match or contrast the cookies flavors.
