  • Wet ingredients
  • ¼ cup melted and cooled coconut oil
  • ¼ cup organic cane sugar or coconut sugar
  • 1 egg at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Dry ingredients
  • 1 ½ cups packed fine almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
  • teaspoon salt
  • For rolling
  • 2 tablespoons organic cane sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, add in coconut oil, sugar, egg, and vanilla. Process for 20-30 seconds until well combined.
  3. Next add in almond flour, coconut flour, cinnamon, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. Process until dough forms. Allow dough to sit for 5 minutes. You can also mix by hand or use an electric mixer, but I find the food processor to be the easiest!
  4. While dough is sitting, mix together cane sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.
  5. Use your hands to roll dough into tablespoon sized balls, then roll each dough ball into cinnamon-sugar mixture until coated completely.
  6. Place each dough ball on prepared cookie sheet then flatten each with the palm of your hand or use the bottom of a glass to flatten. 
  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven, transfer to a wire rack and allow cookies to cool completely. Makes 12 cookies.
