Prep Time 1 hour
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes


  • 1 3/4 cups almond meal
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 tsp ground ginger powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp all spice
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup*
  • Organic dried fruit to decorate


  • In a mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients. 
  • Add melted coconut oil and maple syrup and combine well. 
  • Transfer dough to a flat surface lined with baking paper, shape and cover with another piece of baking paper. Using a rolling pin roll out to 1/2 cm thick. 
  • Transfer to refrigerator for 1 hour or until firm (this helps cut shapes with a cookie cutter). 
  • Pre-heat oven to 170C. 
  • Using a cookie cutter cut shapes into the dough and gently pop out the cookie shape onto a lined baking tray. Repeat until all dough is used up. (Return flattened dough to refrigerator if needed to cut easily into shapes). 
  • Decorate with organic dried fruit, (I used dried cranberries, goji berries and currants) gently pushing into the dough. 
  • Bake in oven for 10 minutes or until golden. 
  • Allow to cool. 



Recipe Tips:
  • *You can also use coconut nectar or honey in place of maple syrup.
