  • 1/4 cup melted and cooled coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 1 egg, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Organic sugar for rolling, if desired


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together melted and cooled coconut oil, coconut sugar, molasses, egg and vanilla extract. (Please make sure your coconut oil is cool!)
  3. Next add in almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, spices and salt; mix well to combine and form a dough. Let the dough rest for just a few minutes.
  4. Use a cookie scoop to scoop dough, then use your hands to roll dough into a ball.

  6. Allow to cool on cookie sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finishing cooling. Makes 10 cookies. Feel free to double the recipe if you want to make more!
