Prep: 30Cook: 20Total: 50 minutes
Yield 26 cookies 1x


  • 2 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup seedless jam (any fruit flavor, I like raspberry)
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar


  1.  Preheat oven to 325F and line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Add almond flour, coconut flour baking soda, and salt to a medium bowl
  3. Mix together egg, honey, coconut oil, almond extract, and vanilla extract in a large bowl
  4. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix to combine
  5. Mix until a ball forms.
  6. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill in fridge for 30 minutes to prevent sticking when rolling.
  7. Roll dough about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick and use linzer cookie cutters to cut half with a hole in the center and half with full centers. Alternatively, use a mason jar lid and cut little hearts, stars, or circles into the top of half.
  8. Bake for 6-8 minutes. Watch cookies closely – they burn quickly! Let cool.
  9. Once cool, top all cookies with powdered sugar.
  10. Add 1 tsp jam to the full cookies and place the cookies with the hole on top of the cookies with jam.
  11. Serve! Do not close in airtight container, just loosely cover with foil on a plate or do not cover at all. They will get soggy if so.
