Healthy Sugar Cookies (Gluten-Free/Grain-Free)

Healthy Sugar Cookies (Gluten-Free/Grain-Free)



  • 1 ½ cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup agave (or substitute maple syrup, stevia or honey)
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • Dash salt


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 F.
  2. Place all ingredients in the food processor and blend until smooth.
  3. Place the dough in plastic wrap, wrap it completely and work the plastic-wrapped covered dough into a smooth shape. The dough may appear crumbly until you do this.
  4. Place dough in the refrigerator for 10 minutes to chill. When you remove the dough, it will be smooth and easy to work with.
  5. Spread dough out evenly using a rolling pin or cover the dough in plastic wrap and just press down with your hands.
  6. Cut out your cookies using a cookie cutter.
  7. Place on a parchment paper-covered baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 7-10 minutes (until golden brown).
  9. Gently place cookies on a cooling rack and let cool.
  10. You can ice/frost these cookies or serve them plain. Both are equally delicious!

Yields 16-18 cookies
