- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

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.
