Instructions
  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

  5. 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!

  6. 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.
