Healthy Shortbread Cookies

Makes 30 cookies

Macros: per serving: 87 Kcal, Carbs 10g, Fat 5g, Protein 1g


1 3/4 cups gluten free all purpose flour blend

1/2 cup almond flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Pinch of cinnamon

1/4 cup cashew butter (or other nut butter but cashew has a nice mild flavour)

1/2 cup coconut oil, melted

2 flax eggs/egg replacer or 2 large eggs*

1/2 cup coconut sugar

10 drops liquid stevia or 2 tablespoons granulated stevia


Preheat oven to 375 degrees Line baking sheets with parchment paper (or use good quality non-stick pans!) In a medium bowl sift together all dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon)

Mix all wet ingredients in a large bowl until full combined and add in dry ingredients 1/3 at a time. Scrape dough out of bowl and wrap in parchment paper -- place in the fridge for 15 - 30 minutes. Dough will be slightly sticky/oily if not refrigerated sufficiently -- leave in for a full hour if necessary. Once set, roll the the dough out to 1/4 inch thickness -- you may roll them thinner for a more delicate cookie but the sturdiness and flakiness is emphasized with a thicker cut cookie! Cut out the cookies until you have completed the dough -- you can place the cookies close together on the baking sheet as these will not spread very much. Bake each batch for 8-10 minutes for a softer cookie and 2-4 minutes longer for crunchier cookies until the edges become golden to dark brown. Cool on a wire rack fully.
