Crisp, light, easy-to-make cut-out cookies made with coconut flour. They are vegan, grain-free, gluten-free, Paleo, and the recipe includes an option to make them vegan.




  1. In a medium bowl, combine the psyllium husks and the water. Let stand for 5 minutes to thicken.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the coconut flour, baking powder and salt.
  3. Add the maple syrup, coconut oil and vanilla extract to bowl with psyllium egg, whisking until blended. Add the coconut flour mixture, stirring until completely combined; it will have the consistency of pancake batter. Let the stand for 5 minutes (the coconut flour will absorb more liquid while it sits). Stir in 1 tablespoon of tapioca starch, or more, to make dough smooth and pliable.
  4. Gather dough into a ball and securely wrap (plastic wrap, parchment or wax paper) and chill for 1 hour.
  5. Preheat oven to 325F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  6. On a flat surface sprinkled with a very light dusting of tapioca starch, roll out dough to about 3/8-inch thickness with a tapioca-dusted rolling pin.
  7. Cut out shapes with a cookie cutter. Gather scraps and re-roll; cut out additional cookies until all of the dough is used. Place cookies on prepared sheet, spacing 1 inch apart..
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 13 minutes until golden brown at edges (go by color, not firmness as they will still be slightly soft). Transfer sheet to a cooling rack and let cookies cool completely on sheets (they will firm up as they cool).


Use a regular egg if not vegan: If you do not need the recipe to be vegan, replace the psyllium egg in step 1 with a large egg.

Keep Cookies the Same Size: Cut the cookies any size, but keep the all the same size for each batch you bake. If making small cut-outs start checking for doneness after 7 minutes; larger cookies will need an extra minute or so depending on size.

Coconut Oil Tip:  Other vegetable oils will not work in this recipe. If you eat dairy, an equal amount of melted ghee or unsalted butter can be used in place of the coconut oil.
