Ingredients:

Dry:

  • One and a half cups of almond flour
  • One and a half cups of chickpea flour (you can most likely sub buckwheat flour, or gluten-free flour, or regular flour, but I have not tested)
  • 1/2 of a cup of coconut flour
  • Two tsp. of coconut sugar, plus more for topping
  • Two tsp. of baking soda
  • Two tsp. of ground ginger
  • One and a half tsp. of cinnamon
  • One and a half tsp. of ground cloves
  • 1/4 of a tsp. of allspice

Wet:

For The Coconut-Raspberry Icing:

  • 1/2 of a cup of coconut butter (this is simply coconut pureé (like a nut butter), not a vegan butter substitute)
  • 1/4 of a cup of unsweetened raspberry jelly/jam/preserves/fruit spread (I used this)
  • One tsp. of maple syrup
  • One tsp. of vanilla
  • Three tbsp. of water

How to make:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients, then mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until a thick batter forms.
  3. Form two-inch balls of dough, then flatten them down onto the lined baking sheet to form cookies.
  4. Bake the cookies for 15 minutes.
  5. While the cookies bake, make the icing by melting the coconut butter, then mix the raspberry jelly, maple syrup, vanilla, and water into the coconut butter.
  6. Once the cookies are done baking, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool completely before icing them.
  7. Once the cookies and the icing are both cool, frost the cookies by placing three dots on each cookie, or however you would like the frost them.
  8. Serve and enjoy!
