  • 1/4 cup butter unsalted, soft
  • 1/3 cup raw honey (or equivalent substitute)
  • 1 egg room temp
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 2/3 cups blanched almond flour sifted
  • 6 Tbsp coconut flour sifted
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt


  1. In one bowl, combine the sifted almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda and salt, set aside

  2. In a separate bowl, using an electric hand mixer (or stand mixer) cream together the butter and honey until very smooth and creamy on medium speed.

  3. Add in the egg and vanilla and beat on low speed until combined. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and beat until a thick cookie dough forms (you can stir it by hand at this point if it’s too thick to mix.)

  4. Using a silicone spatula, scrape all dough off the sides of the bowl and form a ball. Wrap the dough ball in plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 hour so the dough can be rolled. You can also chill overnight if you want to make the dough ahead of time.

  5. Once chilled, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper.

  6. Place the dough on a separate large sheet of parchment paper on your countertop and cover with another sheet. Roll out the dough slowly between the two sheets of parchment paper to 1/4 inch thickness for cutouts.

  7. Place cookie cutouts on the parchment lined baking sheet and repeat with remaining dough, chilling before rolling out again if needed.

  8. Bake cookies in the preheated oven for 10 minutes or until just beginning to turn light brown. Allow cookies to rest on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before carefully transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

  9. Once completely cooled, decorate as desired and enjoy!
