Ingredients

The Cookies

  • 1 1/4 cups almond flour
  • 3 tbsp arrowroot powder (or tapioca) - this is what makes these cookies PILLOWS
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 apple, diced into small pieces (I like Pink Lady for this recipe, but any will do!)
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 tbsp apple pie spice
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

The Icing (optional)

  • 1/2 cup coconut butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp apple pie spice

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond flour, arrowroot powder (or tapioca), baking soda, and apple pie spice. Set aside.
  • In another medium bowl, whisk together the almond butter, egg, maple syrup, and coconut oil, until there are no clumps.
  • Slowly pour the dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet ingredients, and stir ingredients together.
  • Next, fold in the chopped apples and pecan.
  • Refrigerate the dough for 10-15 minutes, so it gets nice and thick.
  • Using a spoon or cookie scoop, form cookies and place them onto the prepared baking sheet. 
  • Bake for 11-13 minutes. Note, these cookies are supposed to be soft and chewy, so don’t over bake them.
  • To make the icing, melt the coconut butter and combine the rest of the icing ingredients. Drizzle over the cookies once completely cooled.
    Enjoy!
