Easy Peasy Lemon Cookies

Comments : 7 Posted in : Desserts, Eggless cookies, Gluten free baking on by : apsara Tags: , , , , , ,

Yay, it is December, and I’m finally posting a cookie recipe that fits the festive mood! The lemon cookies that I have made are so simple to make and have no gluten, and have no oil or refined sugar either. And it can be made in under 30 minutes!

We had a friend over for dinner, a baking enthusiast herself, and she loved these. She said they are soft, yet crumbly and have a great texture and flavor.

That was a fun video I posted on Facebook and I had a lot of people ask me for the recipe. So, here it is!

Easy Peasy Lemon Cookies

Oat flour- 3/4 cup (I use certified gluten-free)

Coconut flour- 1/4 cup (if not available, add 1/4 cup oat flour)

Cashew butter- 1/2 cup

Maple syrup- 1/3 cup (use Grade A variety which has no strong maple flavor)

Baking soda- 1/2 tsp.

Salt- 1/4 tsp.

Lemon zest- 1 tbsp. (grate a large organic lemon till the peel is fully removed)


1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Add flours, baking soda and salt in a mixing bowl.

2. Add cashew butter, maple syrup to the bowl, combine well.

3. Add most of the lemon zest and fold into the thick cookie batter.

4. Use hands to shape into little balls and place on a cookie lined with a baking sheet.

5. Press down to form small circles. Sprinkle the rest of the lemon zest on top, press down gently and use a fork to make patterns.

6. Bake for 16-18 minutes.

7. Cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container.
