Just in the nick of time, a Valentine’s Day recipe that will please one and all (especially YOU!).

The inspiration for these cookies comes straight from my 3-ingredient almond flour cookies. They are every bit as simple to prepare, but instead of being soft-chewy, they are crisp (but not too hard).

They bake into perfect, precise shapes, too. For example, hearts.

Ingredients for 2-Ingredient Almond Flour Cut-outs

Your shopping list for these cookies?

  1. Blanched almond flour
  2. coconut sugar

You will also need a few tablespoons of tap water. I like to add a smidge of fine sea salt, too, but it’s optional.

How to Make 2-Ingredient Almond Flour Cut-Out Cookies

Step One: Preheat Oven & Prep Baking Sheet

Preheat the oven to 300F (150C) and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step Two: Combine All of the Ingredients

Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl. It will look dry as you first begin to stir, but rest assured, it comes together as you continue to stir.

The dough will look like very moist sand, but it is definitely dough when you pick it up and pinch it together.

Gather the dough into a disk, tightly wrap in plastic wrap, and chill for at least 30 minutes. If the dough is too dry to gather into a ball, add a small amount of more water until the dough comes together.

Step Three: Roll and Cut Out the Dough

When you are ready to roll, divide the dough in half and roll between two pieces of parchment paper or wax paper to about 1/8-inch (about 3.5 mm) thickness.

Unlike doughs made from wheat flour, you can roll and re-roll this dough without compromising the cookies (it will not get tough). Yay! I was able to cut out thirty 2-inch (5 cm) cookies from the entire batch of dough.

Step Four: Bake

Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes until the cookies are golden brown at the edges and just set at the centers. It is ok if they appear slightly soft, they will harden as they cool.

In no time at all, you’ve got cookies. Amazing cookies!

The cookies are perfect in their plainness (they are most excellent for dunking).

Then again, adornments of chocolate and sprinkles are never a bad idea.

Happy baking, and Happy Valentine’s Day, from me to you!

Can other Granulated Sweeteners be used in place of Coconut Sugar?

Absolutely! Brown sugar, natural cane sugar, maple sugar, or regular granulated sugar can stand in for coconut sugar.

How Do I Make these Cookies Keto?

And if you are looking to make these keto/sugar-free, a granulated keto sweetener works, too (the heart in the bottom right hand corner, in the photo above, was made with Ketose granulated  sweetener. The cookies will be a smidge more pale, but otherwise, just the same!).

  1. Nice recipe! Will make this but what is the longest time I can keep the dough for? And can I freeze it for a longer time (one week, one month, etc.)?

    1. Hi Sue,
      Thanks, hope you enjoy the recipe! The dough will keep for about a week in the refrigerator, tightly wrapped (otherwise it will dry out). You can also freeze the dough for up to 6 months 🙂
