Incredible, soft grain free birthday cake cookies made with a mix of coconut and almond flour and topped with a luscious vanilla buttercream. These easy, healthy birthday cake cookies are gluten free and low carb but are full of that delicious birthday cake flavor you know and love.
Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack and allow cookies to cool completely before frosting. Makes about 12-14 cookies.
Feel free to use coconut sugar instead of regular sugar in this recipe, the cookies will likely just turn out darker in color, but will still be delicious!
Do not use substitutes. Almond flour should not be replaced with any other flour, nor should you attempt to replace the coconut flour (though I suspect oat flour or a gluten free all purpose flour in place of the coconut flour may work out okay.) These healthy birthday cake cookies are perfect as-is and the recipe should only be changed at your own risk.
