  • 1/4 cup softened vegan butter OR solid refined organic coconut oil (you want the texture to be similar to softened room temperature butter)
  • 3 tablespoons creamy unsalted cashew butter OR pecan butter , (can also sub with creamy unsalted nut butter or seed butter of choice but cashew butter OR pecan butter gives the best flavor profile)
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup OR any preferred sticky liquid sweetener such as organic agave, date syrup or Lakanto sugar-free maple syrup
  • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups superfine blanched almond flour
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour ,sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon cream of tartar

For the cinnamon sugar topping

  • ¼ cup granulated maple sugar, coconut sugar OR golden monk fruit sweetener for lower sugar option

  1. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  3. Add the almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and cream of tartar then stir well until combined.

    If the dough seems too soft (this could result if you used melted coconut oil), you can cover the bowl and chill in the freezer for at least 15 minutes. I do not usually have to chill mine.
