Makes 20 cookies

Ingredients:

2 cups almond flour

1/4 cup coconut flour

1/2 cup desiccated coconut

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup coconut oil

1/3 cup honey

1/2 cup cashew butter

For the icing:

1/4 cup coconut oil

1/4 cup honey

zest of 1 lemon

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F .

  2. Mix almond and coconut flours, coconut and baking soda together in a bowl.

  3. Melt coconut oil in the microwave (about 1 min)

  4. Warm cashew butter and honey in the microwave.

  5. Add warmed cashew butter, oil and honey to the dry ingredients and mix well.

  6. Scoop tablespoons of cookie dough onto baking paper on baking tray.

  7. Flatten into nice round shape. :)

  8. Cook for 7-8 mins until light golden brown.  Careful, they brown quickly!

  9. Take out of oven and cool on trays - they are fragile but will crisp up on cooling.

  10. For icing:  Melt the coconut oil slightly and mix with the honey.  You can either add the lemon zest to the icing or sprinkle it over the top of the iced cookies.

  11. Wait until cookies are cold before icing.  If icing is too stiff, warm slightly in microwave before spreading.

  12. Eat! :)
