Chewy paleo lemon cookies
These cookies scream spring! They are the perfect balance of tart 'n sweet. The best part though: you only need 6 ingredients to throw these cookies together!
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup pure organic maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1 tbsp grass fed gelatin (I used Vital Proteins)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp pink salt
Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 & line a baking sheet with parchment paper.Whisk all your wet ingredients in a medium sized bowl until well combined. In a large separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Pour the wet ingredients in with the dry & stir until it starts to form into dough.Roll your dough into 1 in balls & place on your pre-lined baking sheet, making sure to leave about 2-3 inches in between each ball. With the back of a spoon, flatten balls a bit (they won’t spread much in the oven) so try to get them close to cookie shape. Pop in the oven for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Once done cooking, remove from the oven & let rest on baking sheet until cooled! Store in an airtight container on the counter for 3-5 days or in the fridge for up to a week. Enjoy!
