Hidden Jem “Butter” Cookies


  1. * 2 1/2 cups almond flour
  2. * 3 medjool dates, pitted, quartered and rolled into a ball
  3. * 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  4. * 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  5. * 1 flax egg [1 tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp water]
  6. * 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  7. * 1/4 teaspoon celtic sea salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 350F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat. Set side.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk almond flour, sugar, and salt until combined.
  3. In a larger bowl, combine coconut oil, flax egg and vanilla extract. Add dry to wet and mix until incorporated.
  4. Separate dough into 2 balls, cover with parchment paper, and place in the freezer for 20 minutes.
  5. Once complete, spoon 2 tbsp of dough in your hand and flatten, then place a date in the middle and fold the dough over top. Roll the dough in between your hands to make a ball [make sure you can't see the date!], then press down to make a bit flatter. Place on the prepared cookie sheet and continue with the remaining dough.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden.
  7. Remove from oven and let cool.
