A disclaimer: These are a treat. I suggest being very careful. They are sweet and delicious, and should be eaten with caution.
Recipe: Maple Coconut Cookies
1/2 cup butter or organic palm shortening
3/4 cup pure maple syrup
1 TBSP pure vanilla extract
1.5 cups almond flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes/shredded coconut (or substitute 1 cup finely-chopped nuts if you don’t do well with coconut)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, beat together butter (or shortening), maple syrup, egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl, stir together almond flour, baking soda, salt and coconut flakes (or chopped nuts). Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and beat until combined. Scoop out rounded tablespoons (or use a cookie scoop) onto a parchment paper-covered baking sheet. Bake for about 8 minutes, remove and let cool on baking sheet for 2-3 minutes. Remove to rack to cool.
Edited to add:
This frosting tastes great between two cookies!
