Simple Cinnamon Coconut Flour Cookies

  • Author: Kelli McGrane
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 3 dozen cookies 1x


These simple cinnamon coconut flour cookies will melt in your mouth, and they’re a great introduction to gluten-free baking.



For the Dough:

  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted
  • ¾ cup pure maple syrup
  • 4 large eggs
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup coconut flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt

For the Cinnamon Sugar:

  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat mat.
  2. In a stand mixer, beat together butter, coconut oil, and maple syrup until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla extract, stopping once to scrape down the sides.
  3. Slowly add coconut flour and salt. Mix until just combined and set aside.
  4. In a shallow bowl, combine cinnamon and sugar.
  5. Scoop out 1 tablespoon of batter, roll in cinnamon sugar mixture, and place on prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough, placing dough balls about 1 inch apart.
  6. Lightly press down the top of cookie dough balls just to slightly flatten the tops.
  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cookies should be still slightly underbaked when removed from oven.
  8. Transfer to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container. Enjoy within 5 days.
