Hey all. Isn’t Friday just the best day of the week?! To celebrate this lovely [weekly] occasion, I made some of these yummy grain-free and gluten-free cookies. Do you like a lot of spice in your baked goods? If so, this is a recipe you need to try! These cookies have a spicy, nutty flavor. It seriously tastes like a warm cup of chai. In fact, I had this with a chai tea and it was SO GOOD. The outside is slightly crisp, with the inside soft and chewy. And without any refined flour! The whole family really enjoyed these and I will definitely be making this recipe again sometime in the (very near) future. 🙂 You can find the original recipe here on Texanerin Baking. I changed up a couple things, so I included what I did below. Enjoy!
- 2 cups almond flour
- ¼ cup coconut flour
- ¼ cup raw sugar
- ½ tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp arrowroot starch/flour*
- ½ tsp ground ginger
- ¾ tsp ground cinnamon
- ¼ tsp ground cardamom
- ¼ tsp pumpkin pie spice
- ¼ tsp salt
- ¼ cup coconut oil, melted
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 large egg
- 2-3 tbsp sugar for rolling
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper or silicon pad.
- In a small mixing bowl, stir together the flours, sugar, baking soda, arrowroot, and spices.
- In a larger mixing bowl, whisk together the melted coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla and egg.
- Add the dry mixture to the wet and stir until just combined.
- Roll the dough into 1-inch balls, roll in the sugar, and place 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the tops are firm and no longer wet. They should not be brown and may have cracked a little.
- Let cool completely and store in an airtight container for up to a week.
Again… I’m faced with more delicious looking treats! Yum. How to chose which of the recipes you share to try!? 😉
Thanks for sharing, Bekah.
Haha, you sound like me when I’m on pinterest. I usually can’t decide what I’d like to try making so sometimes I’ll just take a poll on what my family/friends would like! Lol.
Thank YOU for reading, Rissi! And for your continued support of my blog–you’re the best!
