  • In a large bowl, mix the grated apple, apple sauce, coconut oil, honey and vanilla extract.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the almond flour, coconut flour, flaxseed meal, cinnamon, baking soda and salt.
  • Using a rubber spatula, gently mix the wet and dry ingredients together just until combined. Do not over mix.
  • Cover bowl and refrigerate dough for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • For each cookie, spoon about 1½ tablespoon of the chilled dough onto the prepared baking sheet, placing each 2-inches apart (I use a medium cookie scoop). Flatten each cookie slightly with the palm of your hand, then sprinkle the top with ground cinnamon.
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until the top and bottom start to turn brown. Set sheet on a wire rack to cool.



If you like, you can substitute the honey for a lower carb sweetener.
*I used an organic granny smith apple in this recipe. You'll only need about 1/2 of a medium-size apple. Peel the apple, then grate it with cheese grater using the larger teeth on the grater.
