AIP Chewy Lemon Cookies

These cookies are like none other! They have a yummy chew, a zing of tart lemon, and the perfect balance of flavors! They are actually pretty quick to whip up, and I have done you a HUGE favor in not making you zest the lemons! My least favorite part of lemon cookies is being up to my elbows in lemon, and accidentally raking my fingers across the grater. But alas, I have created one of my favorite recipes thus far that does NOT require tedious zesting! Yay! And it will fill your kitchen with the warm flavor of lemon and vanilla. Hmmm....

  • 1 cup of Plantain Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons of Coconut Flour
  • 1/4 cup of Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon of Cream of Tartar
  • 4 Tablespoons of Coconut Sugar
  • 1/4 cup of Lemon Juice
  • 2 teaspoons of Vanilla
  • 2 Tablespoons of Coconut Water (or coconut milk)
  1. Measure out your coconut oil and stick it in the fridge.
  2. Sift the dry ingredients into a bowl and mix. 
  3. Measure out your wet ingredients in another bowl. 
  4. Add the chilled coconut oil to the dry ingredients and mix with your hands until it is dry and crumbly. 
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir immediately. If the dough is still crumbly, add a teensy bit of coconut water and mix again. Continue until it is a workable dough.
  6. Make little balls of dough and pat onto a cookie sheet.
  7. Bake at 350*F for 10 minutes or until golden.
  8. Enjoy!
