I had a craving for apple cinnamon pie but didn’t have the energy to make a gluten free crust and pie. So I thought I could whip together some soft cookies with apples and cinnamon.

This is a simple apple cinnamon cookie recipe that is free of wheat, gluten, soy, dairy and eggs.


½ cup coconut flour

¼ cup each almond meal and tapioca flour

½ cup applesauce, unsweetened

1 small apple, shredded

¼ cup grape seed oil

¼ cup coconut palm sugar

1 flax egg – 1 tablespoon of flax seed meal in 3 tbsp of water, let sit for 5 minutes

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon



Mix together oil, sugar, flax egg, applesauce, then flours, baking soda, cinnamon and then the shredded apple. Spoon into drops onto a parchment lined baking pan. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 12 minutes.
