Vanilla almond cookies

Vanilla almond cookies

It’s cookie time!

Well, to be honest, it’s always cookie time in my home. I can’t count how many times I’ve been asked to bake some cookies.

Lately, I’ve been experimenting and creating new recipes and I’m really excited about this one. These gluten-free cookies require only 6 ingredients, are very simple to make and they’re so delicious. I can never resist a good chocolate-coconut combo. In combination with vanilla and almond flour, it works just perfectly.


I love these cookies with melted chocolate and lemon zest on top but it’s up to you what you’ll use for topping.

Makes 10 cookies

  • 1 cup almond flour (or ground almond)
  • 2/3 cup dried shredded coconut
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla extract (or 1 tsp vanilla sugar)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup or honey
  • 6 tbsp melted butter or coconut oil


  • 60 g dark chocolate, for drizzling
  • Optional: zest of one organic lemon, for sprinkling on top of cookies


  1. Set the oven to 356 F / 180ºC.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine almond flour and coconut. Then add melted butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, egg and mix all the ingredients together. Add more coconut if needed.
  3. With wet hands, form the dough into individual cookies and place them onto parchment-lined baking tray. Bake for about 10 minutes. Let them cool completely on the baking tray.
  4. Melt the chocolate over a hot-water bath, stirring occasionally. Then pour the chocolate over the cookies and sprinkle with lemon zest. Enjoy! :)
