  • In a large bowl, mix together the almond flour, coconut sugar, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the butter, honey and water using a handheld mixer or a whisk, then beat in the egg until everything is combined.
  • Using a rubber spatula, mix dry and wet ingredients together. Do not over mix.
  • Cover and freeze dough for 40 minutes to 1 hour or until it's easy to handle.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F, and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Roll the chilled dough into balls (about 1 1/2 tablespoons per ball), and place them 2-inches apart on the prepared baking sheet. Flatten each cookie with the palm of your hand.
  • Bake for about 10 minutes or until the bottom and edges start to turn brown. Set baking sheet on a wire rack to cool.



*In place of butter you can use coconut oil or palm shortening to make the recipe dairy-free.
