The Perfect Paleo Spice Cookies

Updated: Mar 18, 2020

Think eggnog, cinnamon rolls, and spice heaven, and you're halfway there to

the flavor of these guys!

This recipe is one of that was born because I was bored in the kitchen one day,

and was really craving allll the spices--nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, and

cloves, etc! Then these perfectly sweet, soft, and chewy cookies were born!

A serving suggestion that tastes AMAZING is to scoop your favorite dairy-free

and sugarless coconut milk ice cream in between these babies! Too delish!


The Perfect Paleo Spice Cookies

- Yields 12-16 cookies -


  • 1 1/2 cups blanched almond flour

  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour

  • 2 Tbsp coconut flour

  • 1/4 tsp pink salt

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1 tsp cream of tartar

  • 1 tsp nutmeg

  • a pinch of both ground allspice and ground cloves

  • 2 pasture-raised eggs

  • 1/2 cup grass-fed butter, softened

  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar

  • 2 Tbsp raw honey, or pure maple syrup

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract


  • About 1/8 cup more of coconut sugar

  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

  • 1 tsp nutmeg

  • a pinch of both ground allspice and ground cloves


  1. In a large bowl, with an electric hand mixer, cream butter and coconut sugar together until fluffy and lighter in color, about 1-2 minutes.

  2. Once fluffy, beat in maple syrup until combined. Then add in eggs, one at a time, and beat well. Lastly, add in vanilla, and beat to combine.

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together your dry ingredients. Once mixed, sift your dry ingredients into your larger bowl of wet, and mix (on low speed at first!) until a dough forms.

  4. Chill dough in fridge for a few hours. (Overnight is best!)

  5. Once dough is chilled and stiff, preheat oven to 350°F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a rubber baking mat.

  6. Take heaping tablespoon pieces of dough, roll them in to a ball, and generously roll/coat in the sugar-spice mixture, and place onto your mat. Then, press them down to flatten just a bit, and bake in your oven for 13 minutes.

  7. Once done, sprinkle with a bit more of the spice mixture, and let them cool for a few minutes on the pan. Transfer to a cooling rack to finish cooling. Enjoy!
