Course Cookies


Dry ingredients:

  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup oats

Wet ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • juice of 1/2 orange
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • I use my Vitamix to grind all the dry ingredients to a fine flour and use it again to mix all the wet ingredients to a smooth liquid.

Dry ingredients:

  • 1 cup of raw almonds
  • 11/2 cups of coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup of oats
  • Blend until a fine flour is formed

Wet ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of coconut oil
  • Juice of 1/2 orange
  • 1/3 cup of maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • Blend until smooth
  • Combine dry and wet ingredients and add grated peel of one orange. Whisk until well blended. The cookie batter will be a little crumbly.
  • Take a spoonful of the batter and form a ball with your hands.
  • Put it on a parchment lined baking sheet and press it down to form a flat cookie, repeat with the rest of the batter.
  • Arrange cookies close together, they will not expand while baking.
  • Bake cookies at 350 degrees F (175 C) for 15-20 minutes until golden at the edges.
  • Cookies will be soft when warm and crunchy as they cool.
