These paleo cookies are somewhere between really pretty, delicate and delightful! 


  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1.5 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon + 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Scant 1/8 teaspoon salt {I used super fine sea salt}


  1. Pre-Heat your oven to 375{F}
  2. Crack your eggs into a bowl and lightly beat them.
  3. Put a sieve over the bowl and put your almond flour, cinnamon and salt through it. This will just ensure that there aren’t any lumps or clumps of almond flour! If you don’t have a sieve you can instead put your almond flour in a separate bowl and use a whisk to try to break up any clumps that might be in there and then transfer that to your bowl!
  4. Add in the maple syrup + vanilla and mix it all together until combine.
  5. Use a small cookie scoop {I used a #70 cookie scoop} to portion out the cookie dough on a parchment paper or aluminum foil lined baking sheet. If you don’t have a small cookie scoop you can use a small tablespoon measure or just a spoon to scoop it out!
  6. These cookies won’t spread so you need to flatten them to get them to be that cute little cookie shape! I just wetted the underside of a small clean glass cup and pressed down to flatten it – you could also wet your fingers and press down on them instead! Just note either way you’ll have to re-wet either your fingers or the glass every 2-3 cookies!
  7. Place in your oven and bake for 11-13 minutes, until the edges just start to turn color and the underside is a nice golden brown color.
  8. Let cool and enjoy!
