These grain-free cassava flour cookies are made with coconut sugar, so they're much healthier than the traditional version, slightly less sweet, and full of cinnamon-y goodness. Because cassava flour is more starchy, expect a bit drier cookie and be sure to let them cool completely on the cookie sheet.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat and stir until melted. Continue stirring gently until butter begins to darken in color and releases a slightly nutty smell, 2 to 3 minutes. Immediately remove from heat.

  • Pour butter into a heat-proof mixing bowl and place into the freezer to cool slightly, about 10 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Sift together cassava flour, almond flour, baking powder, and sea salt. Mix 2 tablespoons coconut sugar and cinnamon together in a separate bowl and set cinnamon sugar aside.

  • Remove butter from freezer. Add 1/3 cup sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract and beat until well combined using an electric mixer. Gradually add flour mixture and continue beating until just combined.

  • Scoop up little balls of dough with a medium cookie scoop and roll in cinnamon sugar. Place on the prepared baking sheet leaving ample room in between.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 10 to 11 minutes. Allow to cool completely on the baking sheet before moving to a serving plate.

I needed a bit more cassava flour to make a rollable dough and used monk fruit sugar instead of coconut sugar. My test cookie didn t flatten much so the rest of them I flattened a bit before baking. Not very sweet so if you like sweet cookies you might want to up the sugar (unless the low sweetness was due to my use of monk fruit but I won t think so.) As is I d say it s an adult cookie a unique but pleasant flavour. Good texture hold together well. Read More
