  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and lightly grease with coconut oil.
  2. Stir applesauce and baking soda together in a large bowl until baking soda dissolves. Mix in almond flour, crystallized sugar cane juice, pecans, cranberries, eggs, coconut flour, ground cinnamon, and cake spice. Drop spoonfuls of the dough 2 inches apart onto prepared baking sheets.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until set, about 15 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • If cane sugar is not in your diet, use 1/2 cup coconut sugar instead.
  • Walnuts and raisins can be used in place of pecans and dried cranberries.
  • Baking time varies depending on the baking sheet. For non-stick baking sheets, reduce heat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) and bake for 11 minutes.

We really liked these! They aren't too sweet, but they do kill the sweet tooth. I would eat these for breakfast! I'll be making these again! Thank you for a great recipe.

Very good. More of a drop biscuit than a cookie, but tasty either way!

Very good cake-like cookies. Tastes similar to a typical applesauce cake. I used raisins and chopped pecans. To Cut down on carbs - will use non-refined sugar and omit cranberries.

I could not find cake spice and used pumpkin pie spice instead. The cookies turned out ok, but I had to bake about 10 minutes longer to get them to set up. Due to the expense of the almond flour...
