Cherry Almond Coconut Cookies SCD safe gluten free dairy free

The use of coconut flour instead of coconut flakes makes this batch crispier than the other SCD cookies on my site. If you're looking for a crispier grain free option that packs a flavorful punch, give this a try. This is a nice protein packed sweet snack option that travels well. It's specific carbohydrate compliant as well as grain free. Gluten free and dairy free, as always. Enjoy!

  • 3 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries (or omit - chocolate chips added, sparingly, for my kids in the photo, though these cookies do not need it)
  • 1/4 cup organic coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil 
  • 1/2 cup honey or 1/4 Cup honey + 1/4 tsp stevia liquid
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Mix all ingredients together and bake, on stoneware pans, at 325 degrees F for 20 minutes, or until cookies begin to golden around edges and bottom. Let cool. I like to use a small cookie scoop to quickly pop these onto the pan, and then lightly press them down with a fork. They will cook fine without being flattened, but they do not flatten and spread out in baking so you may prefer to press them down a bit.
