Pignoli Cookies

By February 8, 2021Uncategorized



1 tablespoon coconut oil

2 tablespoons ground flax seeds soaked in 1/3 cup water

11/4 cup almond flour

1/2 tsp (almond extract or anise extract or lemon extract)

1/3 cup maple syrup

¼ cup pignoli nuts


Preheat oven to 350F/180C. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the ground flaxseeds and water. Set aside for 5 minutes.

Add the coconut oil and maple sugar to the bowl. Stir until you get a uniform mixture. Stir in the almond flour until you get a firm, roll-able dough. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.

Using a tablespoon measure, scoop the dough and drop onto prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle pine nuts over the cookies, pressing them in slightly. Bake for 14-18 minutes, until golden brown. Let sit for 5 minutes before placing cookies on a wire rack to cool completely. Best kept at room temperature in an airtight container.

Makes 12-14 cookies (special thanks to Medical Medium for sharing this cookie with the world.)
