Y’all wanna know how I make it through a Monday?
Cookies. So many cookies.
Okay, not every Monday. But this Monday I swear they are calling my name and won’t leave me alone. I have tried everything. I have gone all the way to the laundry room in the basement and put a pillow over my head, but I can still hear them calling from the stovetop. It’s torture. And there’s no way to ever get out.
It’s like Hotel California.
Am I the only person that feels like that? Like you can’t escape the calling of the delicious desserts on your counter? There has to be a support group for that. If you’re a part of one, could you let me know? Anonymously, of course.
But seriously, cookies. These cookies are part two of my “You Asked For It” series and I am in love.
I had a few people request sugar cookies and few other people request snickerdoodles, so I decided to marry the two and just create cinnamon sugar cookies. These are absolute gold. They are chewy and tender, moist but not too gooey, and absolutely DE-licious.
Wanna know what else?
They probably couldn’t be healthier if I tried. These cinnamon sugar cookies are grain free, refined sugar free, dairy free, and vegan- yet somehow absolutely perfect.
They are profound, if you ask me. I need, I mean NEED a cookie I can eat and justify by saying it’s healthy enough for dessert. These are just that.
They are made of just a few simple ingredients: Almond flour, almond butter, baking soda, salt, maple syrup, and cinnamon. You don’t even need a mixer. Just stir it up in a bowl with a spoon and you’re good to go.
Seriously, y’all. These cookies are the most ridiculous good-for-you cookies I will probably ever create.
Give them a try. But beware, once you start, you won’t stop.
And on that note, my cookies are calling.

These are SO easy and SO yummy! I didn’t quite have the amount of maple syrup the recipe called for, so I just used over a cup and they turned out great.
I scarfed a few down as soon as they were cool enough to eat and then kept a Tupperware full on my counter as well as a ziploc bag full in my freezer. They are delicious in all textures ????.
I am so glad you loved them! The recipe calls for just 3/4C maple syrup, so I would love to know how the sweetness was with a full cup!? I almost put a cup in but wasn’t quite sure!
