What You Will Need

  • 1 ½ cup almond flour
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • ½ teaspoon xanthan gum
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon cream of tartar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • ½ cup classic monk fruit sweetener
  • 1 ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons xylitol
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or use a baking stone.
  • Whisk together almond flour, coconut flour, xanthan gum, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt until well combined.
  • In an electric mixer, beat the butter for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Then add monk fruit to the butter and continue to mix for 7 to 8 minutes until fluffy, scraping down the sides periodically. Mixing for this amount of time is essential as the texture of the butter will change.
  • Add the vanilla and egg to the butter and then mix until blended slightly. The mixture will not be even.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients, mixing until just incorporated.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together cinnamon and xylitol until blended.
  • Using a cookie scoop (about 2 tablespoons), divide the dough into equal portions. Then roll dough in the cinnamon mixture until coated evenly.
  • Place cookie on a baking sheet and press down to about ½ inch thickness. NOTE: these cookies will not spread.
  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until the cookies are set. Remove from oven but rest on cookie sheet for 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer cookies to cooling rack and then cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
