Course Dessert


  • 4 cups almond flour
  • 3/4 cup arrowroot flour
  • 1 cup coconut palm sugar
  • 1 tsp grass-fed gelatin
  • 1 1/2 tsp himalayan sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp chilled butter (for paleo use lard or palm shortening)
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 2 largeeggs


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare your baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Mix almond flour, arrowroot, coconut sugar, gelatin, salt, and spices in the bowl of your stand mixer with paddle attachment.
  3. Add the butter and mix again.
  4. Add molasses and eggs, and mix until your dough is smooth.
  5. Sprinkle your parchment-covered countertop with arrowroot, and turn out your dough onto it. Sprinkle more arrowroot onto the dough, then roll out until about 1/4 inch thick.
  6. Cut your cookies, peel away the scraps, then carefully move the cookies to the parchment-lined baking sheets. You can roll the scraps out to cut more cookies, but try not to over-handle the dough.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool completely before decorating.
