What is Special About This Recipe?

These cookies are made with wholesome ingredients. With healthful all-stars like coconut oil and almond meal. What’s more, they’re effortless and easy—a real no-fuss recipe.

Key Ingredients

Every ingredient is intentional here.

  • Instead of using regular sugar and flour, this recipe calls for coconut sugar and almond meal. Coconut sugar is less processed than white sugar and has a lower glycemic index. Almond meal is lower in carbs than white sugar.
  • Cacao powder is less processed than regular cocoa powder.

Tips For Success

Much of the success of these cookies depends on step 3. That is, how you are getting them onto the baking sheet. The tablespoon measure will give you a consistent cookie size. Dipping the tablespoon in the water stops the dough from sticking to the spoon.

Flattening the cookies with a fork is essential for creating the right texture and shape.

Serving and Storing

These cookies go great with a cup of coffee or your favorite nut milk. Store in an airtight container.

Variations

The cookies are a great candidate for ice cream cookie sandwiches. Make sure the cookies are completely cooled. Then, press down a scoop of ice cream between two cookies. You can eat them like this immediately or freeze for later.
