Healthy Classic Sugar Cookie Cut Outs made with healthy ingredients like almond flour, coconut flour and sweetened with maple syrup. A delicious paleo holiday cookie to bake and decorate!

  • Prep Time: 30 mins
  • Cook Time: 8 mins
  • Total Time: 35 mins

Yield: 12 cookies 1x


  • 1 large pasture-raised egg (I used Vital Farms)*
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup (or sub honey)
  • 2 tablespoons liquid coconut oil
  • 2 cups almond flour*
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour*
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, vanilla extract and maple syrup
  2. Then add in the coconut oil and whisk again
  3. Mix in the almond flour, coconut flour and baking powder until dough is formed into a ball
  4. Cover bowl with a paper towel or dish towel and add the bowl with the dough in it to the fridge for about 15-30 minutes
  5. At this point, preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  6. Remove the dough from the fridge and sprinkle some almond flour onto counter and a rolling pin (I used a large drinking glass)
  7. Roll out the dough so it is around 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick (if sticking just add more flour)
  8. Use small cookie cutters to create the cut outs or you can use the rim of a wine glass (that is what I used)
  9. Depending on how you cut out the cookies, you may need to roll the dough out again to make more cut outs
  10. Place the cookies onto baking sheet (they don’t spread much while baking) and bake in oven for 8 minutes or until they begin to golden just a bit
  11. Allow the cookies to cool for a few before decorating (they may look dry at first but once they cool they actually are a bit more moist!)


*I haven’t tested flax egg

**I haven’t tested other flours

***to make liquid coconut oil, melt solid coconut oil then let it cool but please measure to 2 tablespoons after it is melted
