Crisp-tender, delicious and easy maple almond flour cut-out cookies that are also Paleo, grain-free, gluten-free, and refined sugar free!
It’s finally time for cookies!
We decorated the house last night so I’m in full-Christmas mode. Hence, I decided to experiment and make maple-sweetened almond flour cut-out cookies.
I was nervous about whether these cookies would turn out. The dough is ridiculously delicious on its own, and since the recipe has no eggs, I could have stopped there and made some no-bake balls. But rolled and cut cookies are such an iconic holiday tradition; I really wanted these to succeed so I could share them with all of you.
I’m thrilled to report that they are positively scrumptious, not to mention pretty as can be (if I do say so myself). They have a delicate crisp-tender crumb and a gentle sweetness that leaves you feeling happy, energized, and satisfied. I decided I need to eat
one three along with my coffee following my morning run. I’m all about quality control here at Power Hungry.
You do not need a diet prescription, restriction, intolerance or allergy to make these cut-outs. In addition to being (almost) irresistible, they are also a cinch to make. The dough, as well as the can of coconut milk for the frosting, will need to be chilled, so plan ahead, but beyond that, these are far easier to prepare than their traditional counterparts. No fancy or electric equipment is required, which means clean-up is as easy as the prep.
Use Finely Ground Almond Flour (not Almond Meal)
I want to call your attention to the specification of finely ground blanched almond flour I make in the ingredient list. You want to be sure to opt for one made with blanched almonds to create a smooth, cohesive dough. Almond meal is not the same thing; it is made whole (skin on) almonds and will lead to a dough that is difficult to roll and will taste like it has chopped nuts throughout.
I advise keeping these cookies in the refrigerator (in a covered container). They will stay fresh and remain firm, and the coconut icing will stay in place.
