Starting this rainy bay area day with my *new* grain-free, nut free CHEWY LEMON COCONUT COOKIES (I have a thing for lemons)!

 

makes 24 cookies

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat oven to 350.
Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, whisk together the coconut flour, arrowroot flour, coconut sugar, baking soda, and sea salt.
In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, melted coconut butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, lemon zest and lemon juice.
Pour wet ingredients into the dry, and let sit for 5 minutes so the batter thickens (coconut flour is super absorbent).
Form cookies and place on baking sheet. Note, they won’t flatten during baking, so press down if you like flatter cookies.
Bake 10-12 minutes. I bake for 10 minutes so they are super chewy.
Let cool, then whisk together the coconut butter and lemon juice for the topping and drizzle on top! That’s it!
