They are super easy to make and only have 5 ingredients. You can whip these up in no time!
Only 5 ingredients…..so simple!!
Mix all the ingredients together until well combined.
The consistency will seem a little dry, but keep mixing. It will appear to be a little crumbly but that’s ok. That’s how it’s suppose to be. Place in the refrigerator for 30 min. This will help when you roll it out.
Form it into a ball & place on a lightly floured surface.
Roll out the dough & start cutting. Aren’t my lips cute?? 🙂 Any type of cookie cutter will work. You could even use a glass!!
Place them on a Silpat or baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for about 8-10min.
Let me just say, if you don’t already have one of these Silpat’s, you must get you one ASAP!! I’ve only had mine for about a year. I don’t know how I baked without one. Being an avid baker, this is one of the best things that I could have purchased Makes baking so much easier.

For the icing, I just used a coconut oil jar that had next to nothing left in it. I just added my oil, honey, salt and two drops of food coloring.
See how the edges came out browned? That means you did it right! Give them about 10 min to cool & move them to a cooling rack to cool completely before icing.
So once they have cooled to room temperature you can ice them. Sometimes when I’m baking I am guilty of trying to cut corners. You will see in the picture below where I iced them while still a little warm. Guess that’s what I get for not following directions lol.
They were a little runny, but no big deal. I have a solution for that. Just pop them in the fridge for a few until the icing sets.
Almond Flour Frosted Sugar Cookies- Only 5 Ingredients
These almond flour cookies not only taste great, they are good for you too!!
- 2 cups almond flour
- 1/4 cup coconut oil softened (or you can substitute butter)
- 1/4 cup honey raw
- 1/2 tsp almond extract
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
For the Icing
- 2 tbsp coconut oil softened
- 2 tbsp honey raw
- 1/2 tsp almond extract
- pinch of sea salt
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a medium bowl, mix together the cookie ingredients until it is well incorporated.
Place the dough in the fridge for 30 min (this makes it easier to roll out the dough).
Lightly flour your surface and roll the dough out until desired thickness. I think mine are about 1/4" thick. (If you don't want to do cut out cookies, you can always skip the 3rd step and drop them onto a baking sheet, lined with a Silpat or parchment paper and form them into circles). Using your cookie cutter, cut out your cookies and place them on the baking sheet. Do this process until you are out of batter.
Bake for about 8 minutes at 350F, or until the edges turn golden brown.
Allow to cool on the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
For the frosting, simply stir together the coconut oil, honey, almond extract and salt, until well combined. If the coconut oil starts to melt (it melts at temperatures above 76 degrees), briefly place the mixture in the fridge to help it set. You can also add a few drops of food coloring to make them more fun.
Frost the cooled cookies, and let them set in the fridge for a more solid-frosting.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will try these cookies & love them as much as I do. Leave me a comment below and let me know what you think!
