Ingredients

  • cup almond flour (196g)
  • ¼ cup coconut flour (30g)
  • ¾ cup powder coconut sugar (120g) see note for the link
  • ½ cup dairy free butter (106g) softened
  • 1 tablespoon almond extract (15g)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (5g)
  • 2 tablespoon coconut yoghurt (30g)
  • ½ teaspoon pink salt (2.5g)

Instructions

To make the cookie dough

  • Fit your stand mixer with the paddle attachment.
  • Place the almond flour, powdered sugar, coconut flour and pink salt in the mixing bowl.
  • Start to add the butter and mix until a crumble is formed.
  • Proceed to add the coconut yoghurt, almond extract and vanilla.
  • Continue to mix until large clumps have formed.
  • Scoop out the mixture and make a dough ball with your hands. Make sure the dough isn't sticky, if it is then add a bit more almond flour and re-form the dough ball.
  • Saran wrap (cling film) the dough and leave to set in your refrigerator for about an hour to chill (very important)

Making the cookies

  • Preheat the oven 325f/160c line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Place a sheet of parchment paper on a flat surface and remove the dough from the refrigerator, unwrap it and place in the centre of the parchment paper.
  • Place another piece of parchment paper on top of the dough.
  • Use a rolling pin to roll the dough flat (about ¼ inch) then use a cutter to cut out the cookies in the shape that you desire (you may need a pallet knife to lift the cookies)
  • Repeat the above steps and re-roll any scraps of leftover dough in between the parchment paper and shape.
  • Bake the cookies in the oven for 12-14 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden.
  • Once done leave the cookies to set for 10 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack
  • Dust the cookies with powdered coconut sugar.

Notes

  • Make sure the sugar that you are using is powdered. I used my Powdered Coconut Sugar recipe and used a combination of cane and coconut sugar.
  • This recipe makes about 15 cookies
  • Be sure to chill the dough before rolling it out, chilled dough is important for the cookie formation.
  • I used my stand mixer to form my dough, you can use hand held dough/pastry blender instead or even do the entire recipe by hand (it will take longer).
  • Feel free to add any additional flavouring i.e cinnamon, ginger etc...
  • If you don't have coconut yoghurt, use another vegan yoghurt or vegan cream cheese.
  • Make sure to store the cookies in an air tight container.
