Almond cookies

Got a sweet tooth, but don’t want the cavity-causing sugar? Try using xylitol for the sweetener instead. Xylitol has been shown to have decay-preventive qualities, inhibiting the growth of the oral bacteria that cause cavities.


2 cups coconut oil
1½ cups xylitol
2 eggs
1 teaspoon maple extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons almond extract
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
A handful of whole almonds


  1. In a large bowl, mix coconut oil and xylitol together.
  2. Add eggs and beat. Once eggs are well mixed, add in extracts.
  3. Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl and slowly add to creamed mixture.
  4. Using a tablespoon, place mixture two inches apart onto an ungreased baking sheet. Press an almond into the center of each cookie.
  5. Bake at 350°F for 10-12 minutes.
  6. Cool on wire racks and then enjoy!
