Bake Me Home Tonight: Honey Almond Flour Cookies (GAPS, Paleo, Primal, gluten Free, grain free)

By Kristen

I don't just have a sweet tooth, I have a sweet mouth, that's right all 32 teeth are sweet including my wisdom teeth. Likely this is borne from haywire gut flora and loco insulin that have gone unchecked for most of my life, and I do my best to not overindulge. Therefore this lil mini batch of cookies with only 3 tablespoons honey fit the bill perfectly. I created the recipe while I was in a cabin in the mountains with limited ingredients. It is a bit like a sugar cookie, only lacking the nefarious sugar.


1/2 a stick butter, melted
1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
3 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 cups blanched almond flour
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon Celtic salt


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat. Add the honey. Hint: if you grease your tablespoon the honey slides right out. Remove from heat. In a medium sized bowl mix the dry ingredients. Add the vanilla to the butter mixture. Combine wet and dry ingredients. Drop overflowing tablespoons of batter on to a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake for 8-12 minutes depending on your altitude and the actual internal temp of your oven, which can vary from what your dial says.
