  • 1 3/4 cups finely ground almond flour
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice or ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • dash salt


  • Preheat oven to 350*.
  • Combine dry ingredients in a medium sized mixing bowl.
  • Add wet ingredients and mix using a hand mixer. Dough may become a bit crumbly.
  • Roll dough into a ball and place on a large piece of parchment paper, laid on a flat surface. Add another large piece of parchment on top.
  • Roll out dough using a rolling pin, to about 1/4" thickness.
  • Use animal-shaped cookie cutters to cut out shapes. If using plunge-style cutters, gently wiggle and push plunger in and out as you pull away from the dough.
  • Gently transfer shapes to a lined baking sheet, spacing cookies about an inch apart. A thin fish spatula can help with the transfer.
  • Bake for about 8 minutes, until lightly golden on the edges. Allow to cool before serving or storing in an air-tight container.
