Servings: 12
Preparation Time: 15 minutes

  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot starch
  • 1 tablespoon psyllium husk powder*
  • 1/3 cup raw honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup palm shortening, or grass-fed butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon peel, grated
  • 1/4 teaspoon anise extract

*If you do not have psyllium husk powder, replace with 1 egg.

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

Preheat oven to 350° F.

In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Mix on low speed until combined and dough comes together.

Gently roll dough into 1″ balls. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.

Let cool completely. Store in a sealed container.
