Hello friends! Today I bring this recipe for Healthy Honey Cookies! These are paleo honey cookies, soft and chewy, topped with a delicious cream frosting! Also make sure to watch the video with the recipe included.
That is the best texture I ever look for in a cookie! Are you team chewy or team crispy cookies? I am team chewy always and forever!
Gimme all the soft cookies!
These Healthy Honey Cookies check all the boxes! Plus it’s awesome the fact that they are refined sugar free cookies, purely sweetened with honey!
Another great thing about these Healthy Honey Cookies? They are super EASY to make! And not only easy, but quick too!
It takes about 10 minutes to make the cookie dough (washing dishes included 😅), then 30 minutes chilling in the fridge (enough time to get a cup of coffee or do a meditation 🧘♀️), after chilling, it takes about 10 more minutes baking! After baking, you can make the cream frosting for the top in about 5 minutes. So, in less than one hour you can have these cookies, and the best part is that most of this time will be hands off.
Making the dough is the easiest thing ever!
Let’s start with the ingredients! You only need 9 ingredients.
Mix all wet ingredients in a bowl: almond butter (or any other nut butter, vanilla, honey, egg, and coconut oil. Then add dry ingredients in: almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, and salt.
After the cookies are done baking, let them cool down before putting the frosting on top.
The honey cream frosting is really easy to make. Just mix some coconut cream with a bit of honey. Make sure to place the coconut cream can in the fridge the night before, I always just keep my coconut cream cans in the fridge anyway, as soon as I get back from the store I put them in the fridge.
Remove the coconut cream from the fridge and flip the can over, open the can and drain the water. The water will have concentrated on the bottom of the can, and the cream will have floated and concentrated at the top. So, if you flip the can over you can easily drain the water and just be able to use the cream. Use the drained water to make smoothies, makes them delicious!
These were seriously delicious! I ate the whole batch! These Healthy Honey Cookies were amazing! It took me 3 tries to get the recipe right. On the first recipe, I tried to make it without the egg, it didn’t go so well, the cookies looked like a sad tiny pale tough dinner roll. The second batch was way better because I added the egg. And on the third batch I decided to add a bit more coconut flour.

Coconut whipped cream
