Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Keyword: apple cinnamon cookies, breakfast cookies, soft cookies recipe
Servings: 16


  • 2 cups almond meal
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
  • In a large bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients. Use a fork to mix them together, being sure to break up an lumps in the almond meal or coconut flour. Once well mixed, set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine wet ingredients. Mix with a whisk until the mixture has a smooth and even consistency.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl containing the dry ingredients. Mix with a spoon until all of the batter is smooth and has an even consistency, the coconut flour has a chance to absorb liquids (this takes a couple of minutes), and the there are no lumps.
  • Carefully roll the batter into 16 golf ball size portions and arrange them on the lined baking sheet, with about 1 1/2 inch space between them.
  • Using a clean mason jar or another glass container with a flat bottom, carefully flatten the balls of dough to about 1/2 inch thickness. If the flattened dough sticks to the container, gently shake it a little and the dough should easily come off.
  • Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-22 minutes or until the cookies are no longer completely soft and are turning slightly golden brown on the top.
  • Once done baking, transfer the cookies to a wire cooling rack. Allow cookie to cool completely before enjoying and/or storing in an air-tight container.


  • These cookies are lower in sugar than most dessert cookies, sweetened and given their flavor by cinnamon and applesauce, making them the perfect piece to a healthy breakfast.
  • Pair the cookidx with a few hard boiled eggs, a green smoothie, half an avocado, and/or a little fresh fruit…and breakfast has never tasted so good or been easier to get together.
