Recipe: Salty Sweet Grain Free Cookies (SCD, GAPS, Paleo)

Recipe: Salty Sweet Grain Free Cookies (SCD, GAPS, Paleo) post image

I had a craving for something salty – but also sweet and somewhat crunchy. A cookie. Made with wholesome and grain free ingredients these simple cookies hit the spot! I think your family will love them too!

I love coconut oil, but many times I use ghee in baking. It just seems to give grain free flours a little extra body and flavor. It is very easy to make ghee. If you use grassfed butter you will have a delicious and extremely healthy good fat.

If you are sensitive to dairy you might consider trying ghee after a while. Even people sensitive to dairy can tolerate ghee. Ghee has all the health benefits of butter and it would be a shame to keep it out of the diet if you can tolerate it.

Salty Sweet Grain Free Cookies (SCD, GAPS, Paleo)




  1. In a food processor mix together the eggs, the honey, softened ghee and vanilla extract and mix
  2. Add the almond flour and part of the coconut flour and mix
  3. The batter should be thick enough to make balls — if it is not, add coconut flour a little at a time
  4. Be sure to taste the batter to make sure it is sweet enough for you
  5. Form balls and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet
  6. Place saran wrap over cookies and flatten with a spatula
  7. Shake some salt onto each cookie
  8. Bake at 325 degrees F for 12 – 16 minutes or until lightly browned
  9. Cool on a rack

Tip: Double the recipe – these go very quickly!

    These look lovely!

    Do you think I could sub the eggs at all? Also could I sub the coconut flour for anything?

      Hi Lili,
      You could use your egg replacer (whatever one you use) I guess. Coconut flour is different from other flours so that may take some experimentation.
