Cinnamon cookies with coconut sugar: dairy and gluten free

A few days ago I was craving crunchy cookies and because my kitchen cupboards are full of all kind of healthy alternatives for baking I randomly made up these very simple cookies. You only need 5 ingredients plus cinnamon and salt. These turned out pretty crunchy and so yummy! 

Ingredients:

  • 2 dl almond meal
  • 1 dl coconut flour
  • 1 dl/75g coconut oil (soft)
  • 1-1,5 dl coconut sugar, you can choose how sweet you want your cookies
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp Ceylon cinnamon
  • a pinch of pink Himalayan salt

Instructions:

  • Preheat the oven: 175 C
  • Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl, then add the rest of the ingredients and mix until well combined.
  • Form spoonful of dough into a ball using your hands and place it onto a baking sheet. Do it with the rest of the dough.
  • Press the balls into flat cookies using a fork. Dip the fork into a warm water in between, so it won’t stick onto the cookies when pressing.
  • Sprinkle some cinnamon and coconut sugar on top of the cookies.
  • Bake about 12-15 min. Coming directly out of the oven, cookies will be soft. As they cool down, they become crunchy on the outside.

Enjoy!
