These soft paleo sugar cookies are chewy and delicious!  Made with almond flour and coconut flour and completely paleo and vegan friendly.




  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, ground flax, baking powder and salt.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, mix together shortening, maple syrup, coconut sugar and vanilla.
  4. Pour the dry mixture into the wet mixture and stir with a spatula until well combined.
  5. Use a large cookie scoop* (2 Tbsp per cookie) to scoop the cookie dough onto the lined baking sheet.  Slightly flatten with a spatula.
  6. Place the cookies in the oven and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven, cool on baking pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire cooling rack.
  8. Once cooled, eat as-is or top with your favorite frosting or icing**


*May make bite-sized cookies (1 Tbsp per cookie) and lower the bake time to 8-10 minutes.

**I glazed these with the icing from my zucchini breakfast cookie recipe.
