Vanilla Cookies

8 Apr, 2020

These are some simple vanilla cookies. My neighbor and friend requested an easy cookie recipe she can make to curb her cravings and that’s what you have here. The ‘make your neighbor some cookies’ recipe. That also gave me a great idea to package them as a little gift for your loved ones and neighbors. You can package them and bring them over while adhering to the physical distancing rules, drop them at the front door and have a little social moment. We all need a little bit more kindness in our lives during this period and these are the perfect cookies for that. So, make a double batch and go spread the joy with your neighbors/friends/family.

I’ll continue experimenting with this recipe to add more versions, like lemon zest or chocolate chip are two variations that come to mind immediately. I encourage you to play around as well and share your adventures with me.

The cookies will keep up to week in a tin or jar, but I doubt they will make, before you know it you’ll be making a new batch.

  • 1⅓ cup almond flour
  • ½ cup arrowroot flour
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • pinch salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • cup maple syrup
  • cup coconut oil


  • Preheat the oven to 160°C.
  • In a bowl mix the flours together.
  • Melt the coconut oil, just don’t let it boil.
  • Add coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract to flour and mix.
  • Allow to cool a bit and use a tablespoon to scoop out perfectly round domes of cookie dough onto your baking tray. Make sure to keep enough space between the cookies as they will flatten while baking and you don’t want them to stick together.
  • Make 12-14 cookies.
  • Place in the oven for 20 min until nice and golden brown. When you take it out the center of the cookies will still be slightly soft.
  • Allow to cool for 10 min and the cookie will crisp up.
