“Cinnamon Bun” Cookies

When I was pregnant with my son (my first born) I would crave cinnamon buns. I was so weight conscious that I would try to find substitutes for the flavor. Cinnamon cereal did the trick. Since giving up grains, I still crave that sugary cinnamon sweetness and these cookies definitely did it. They’re so chewy and have a rich cinnamon flavor. I’m not going to lie, I just inhaled 4. I don’t regret it though. With simple ingredients and no refined sugar they’re not an awful choice.


2c almond flour

1/2tsp baking soda

1/4tsp kosher salt

6 tablespoons maple syrup

4tsp melted coconut oil

2tsp pure vanilla extract

1/2c flaked coconut

1tbsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350.

Mix all ingredients together and form into a dough. Use a tablespoon to plop dough onto a cookie sheet. Flatten the cookies so they bake evenly (they won’t spread).

Bake for 10 minutes.

Store in fridge (if you have any leftover!)
