Squishy Almond Flour Cookies

by Paleo Rob on 19/08/2010

These cookies are awesome. No grains. No processed sugar. Lots of fat.

I found the recipe on the Marks Daily Apple Forum (sorry can’t find original post!) and have been using it to make baked goodness ever since. One of these every now and then with my morning coffee is a nice treat.

Difficulty: Easy!
Tastiness: Delicious
Paleoness: Not for those sensitive to sugar. But otherwise great.


1 and1/4 cup Almond Flour/Meal
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract (optional)
1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 large Egg
1/4 cup Honey
1/4 cup Dark Choc Chips/Pecans/Macadamia/Whatever You Want


  1. Pre-Heat oven to about 190°C (375 F)
  2. Put all dry ingredients together and mix well.
  3. Add Egg and Honey and mix until smooth and consistent.
  4. Add some baking paper to a tray and put tablespoons of the sticky mixture about 5cm apart.
  5. Bake for 10-15mins depending on how you like them.
  6. Leave to cool before eating.

Great cookies! Just made them with blueberries and coconut for a little change. It’s a great base recipe, thanks rob!

Booyah, when you crave a cookie and maybe some milk, these are great! Not substitute boy I wish I could eat a real cookie great, but great.

Next time we’ll reduce the honey and add some blueberries.

These are sooo good! Made them with raisins, coconut and pecans. Thank you for sharing! Like the comment to reduce honey and try blueberries, too. This not only makes paleo liveable, it makes it enjoyable! Cheers!

I make them with stevia – use a couple droppers of the liquid, add some dried fruit for more sweet. I love these cookies. Off to make a couple dozen for a customer right now.
