Guest Post: Almond Cookies with Cinnamon Glaze

My good friend George from Civilized Caveman is kind enough to come on over to my site today and share an awesome cookie recipe with you. I first guest-posted for George last year with my savory waffles eggs benedict recipe and we have kept in touch ever since. We talk all the time online, but have never had a chance to cook with eachother or taste each other's recipes in real life! I was recently asked to do a cooking demonstration at the big Paleof(x) conference and just found out that George will also be doing one with my new hysterical friend Juli from PaleOMG! So we'll all get to finally hang out and talk food, photography and Paleo for hours on end!

George consistently cranks out quality recipes for his readers and doesn't let much time elapse before posting another one. Subscribe to his emails and your inbox will always be full of new recipes. He also published a great e-book that includes over 200 recipes so you can have them at your fingertips at all times. It's on sale right now for 60% off and you can order a copy hereHe not only has mastered the grill and turns out meat after meat recipe, but can successfully create a delicate treat like these almond cookies with cinnamon glaze. My husband hates to cook and would rather clean up my mess, so it's refreshing to see all of these awesome Paleo guys run successful blogs and create solid recipes! Thanks George for lending me one of your recipes to share with my readers today!

SERVES: 1 dozen

PREP TIME: 10 mins

COOK TIME: 20 mins TOTAL TIME: 30 mins


  • 2 ½ cups almond flour (250 grams)
  • ¼ cup coconut flour (35 grams)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder (8 grams)
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ cup macadamia nut oil (2 oz) or coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey, melted
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract or vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons honey, melted
  • 1 tablespoon grass-fed butter melted, or ghee
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Combine your almond flour, coconut four, baking powder, and cinnamon in a mixing bowl and stir well
  3. Add your oil, honey, almond extract (or vanilla) and eggs and mix into a soft dough
  4. Dust your work surface with almond flour and lay your dough out, pressing to just shy of ½ inch thick all around
  5. Cut into circles and lay on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. I didn’t have a cookie cutter so I used the lid of a small mason jar
  6. Place in the oven and bake for 9 minutes
  7. With your cookies in the oven, combine your honey, butter, and cinnamon for your glaze in a bowl and mix well
  8. At the 9 minute mark, pull your cookies out of the oven, and using a basting brush, brush your glaze on all of your cookies
  9. Place your cookies back in the oven and bake for 9-11 minutes or until done
  10. Remove from the oven, sprinkle with some almond flour or shredded coconut and drizzle your remaining glaze over your cookies
  11. Serve immediately or place in an airtight container which will last 3-4 days
