Preparation Time: 20 minutes

  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 1/4 cup molasses, or whole cane sugar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil 
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup applesauce (or 1 egg)

  • 1/2 cup almond flour*
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Preheat oven to 325° F.

In a mixing bowl, cream together honey, molasses or cane sugar, and coconut oil until smooth and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add in vanilla extract and applesauce until smooth.

Add in flours, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Beat until combined.

Using a cookie scoop, scoop out dough and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Gently press cookies flat using your palm.

Bake for about 10 minutes or until lightly brown. Let cookies cool completely on a wire rack before serving.

*You can grind your own almond flour by placing whole almonds in a blender/food processor and blending until you get a fine meal.
