Almond Cookies with Cinnamon Glaze
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 12
Cinnamon Glaze
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Combine your almond flour, coconut four, baking powder, and cinnamon in a mixing bowl and stir well
  3. Add your oil, honey, almond extract (or vanilla) and eggs and mix into a soft dough
  4. Dust your work surface with almond flour and lay your dough out, pressing to just shy of ½ inch thick all around
  5. Cut into circles and lay on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. I didn’t have a cookie cutter so I used the lid of a small mason jar
  6. Place in the oven and bake for 9 minutes
  7. With your cookies in the oven, combine your honey, butter, and cinnamon for your glaze in a small bowl and mix well
  8. At the 9 minute mark, pull your cookies out of the oven, and using a basting brush, brush your glaze on all of your cookies
  9. Place your cookies back in the oven and bake for 9-11 minutes or until done
  10. Remove from the oven, sprinkle with some almond flour or shredded coconut and drizzle your remaining glaze over your cookies
  11. Serve immediately or place in an airtight container which will last 3-4 days

  1. They look so delicious! Must try:)

  2. Wow!! These are amazingly delicious! Love the nutella chocolate chip cookies. And the banana bread…..hands down the best and most satisfying one I’ve had. Thank you for sharing these recipes

  3. These are my favorite cookies!! We make them frequently, have shared with several friends, and our little one loves them too! Can’t wait to try more of your recipes

  4. Michelle says:

    I just made these and am eating a warm one as I type! They are fantastic! This is the second recipe of yours I have made. Your banana bread is hands down the BEST paleo baked goods recipe I have ever made. I am so impressed that your recipes are ones I can rely on to be tasty. Thanks for all your hard work!!!!!

  5. These are great! My daughter and I think they are awesome! So easy to make and delicious – thanks for the recipe!!!

  6. Hrm. I can’t tolerate dairy in any form (it’s tragic). Do you think the glaze would work with coconut oil instead of butter?

  7. Made these with hazelnut flour because the supermarket was out of almond flour and they came out just as tasty. Thanks for the really awesome recipe!

  8. I was just thinking about all the cookies I will have to give up the next 40 days since I won’t be eating Chocolate for Lent and you solved my problem! Once my almond flour gets in this will be the first thing to go in my oven!

  9. i voted, and can’t wait to try these, they look amazing

  10. Thanks for this recipe, George. I find that cinnamon is a flavour that really makes me believe I’m eating something sweet but without the sugar. I think it is interesting that you bake the glaze as well…. it must make them crispy on top. Thanks for the inspiration.

  11. Stephanie says:

    Just made these this weekend. SOO delicious!

  12. Perfect timing posting these. Was snowed in and had all the ingredients. These came out awesome! I might add a little more honey to the glaze just to make them slightly sweeter but I can’t stop eating these. Thanks!

  13. Clean Eating -- It's a Lifestyle says:

    Made these this morning! As others note, it’s too cold to be outside so may as well warm up the house!

  14. Voted and voted often… :-)

  15. Wonderful recipe! I just made a batch, they are so good and my house smells so awesome. I am your new biggest fan. I have made so many of your recipes in the past few weeks and they are all so good. Do have to modify them to be egg and nightshade free due to allergies but everything is still turning out delicious. Thanks for sharing your gift!

  16. Lisa Olson says:

    Just voted for you! I wish you the best of luck, you deserve it! I just might make these cookies today, they look so good and I do have all the ingredients on hand. I am on Day 4 of the nicotine patch and try NOT to eat to replace a cigarette. I usually don’t have any sweets in the house, but today, I think I need something besides carrot & celery sticks. I’ve got to beat this’s a hard one to beat.
