Almond Flour Sugar Cookies

Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 24 mins
Total Time 34 mins
Servings 18 cookies


  • 1 1/2 cups finely ground almond flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/2 tsp aluminum free baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup evaporated cane sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter or coconut oil
  • 1 large egg or 1 flax egg
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add almond and tapioca flours, baking powder, and salt and mix well.
  • In a separate bowl, add sugar, butter, egg, water, and vanilla extra. Using a hand mixer on low, mix completely.
  • Now pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredient and gently mix until mixed completely. Do not over mix.
  • Line your baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking sheet, use a small spoon and make into 2 inch sized balls. Bake for 12-15 minutes. They will not brown so don't look for that as an indicator.
  • Once done, remove from the oven, and place cookies on a cooling rack.
  • For best results, cool completely before frosting.
