  • 1/2 cup soft butter
  • 1/4 cup raw honey you can go with more if your kids are used to sweeter stuff - start with this and you can always add more though
  • 2 pastured eggs If you are egg free I think flax eggs or gelatin eggs will work for the bind - they just might not puff up as much which doesn't matter!
  • 1 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup white rice flour I think almond flouror more tapioca flour would work here if you are grain free
  • Zest & Juice of 2 lemons
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp aluminum free baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt


  • Blend the butter and honey with and beaters until fluffy.
  • Add the eggs and beat until frothy.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and blend through until combined.
  • Roll balls of the dough and flatten to the size cookie you want on a silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheet - they won't spread out so make them how you want them. Depending on how big you want your cookies you can get about 7 cookies out of this batch.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
