Dry Ingredients

  • 1 cup all purpose gluten-free flour blend
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

Wet Ingredients

  • ¼ cup cashew butter
  • ¼ cup coconut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons applesauce unsweetened
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients and mix.
  • In a separate bowl, microwave the cashew butter and coconut butter for 30 seconds. Then add all other wet ingredients and mix.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix it all together. Use your hands to mix the dough throroughly. It will seem a bit dry and crumbly at first, but it will come together.
  • Next, roll out the dough to be appproximately ¼ inch thick. I recommend rolling half the dough at a time, and ensure it is being rolled onto something that it won’t stick to. I use parchment paper.
  • Use cookie cutters to shape your cookies, then place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10 minutes.
  • After removing the cookies from the oven, place them on a cooling rack. Once cooled, store the cookies in an airtight container. They will keep for at least a week.

If you want your cookies to be oil-free, make sure that you are using oil-free coconut butter and cashew butter. Check the ingredients if store-bought, or make your own.
