Recipe Card


  • 3/4 cup (70 grams) brown rice flour
  • 1/3 cup (40 grams) gluten free oat flour
  • 2 cups (200g) almond flour, (non blanched)
  • 1/4 cup (25 grams) tapioca flour
  • 1/3 cup (50 grams) brown coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 egg


  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit and line a cookie sheet with If You Care Parchment Baking Sheets.

  • Step 2

    In a medium sized bowl combine brown rice flour, oat flour, natural almond flour, tapioca flour, coconut sugar, baking powder and spices.

  • Step 3

    In a small separate bowl combine egg and maple syrup. Add to dry ingredients, combine and with your hands knead into a sticky dough. If too sticky add a tablespoon of tapioca flour. Wrap in foil and place in the refrigerator for about 5 minutes.

  • Step 4

    On a floured (brown rice flour) surface roll out dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Slowly but firmly roll the engraved embossing rolling pin over the dough one last time. Cut out cookies with a preferred cookie cutter and place onto the cookie sheet leaving 1 inch of space in between cookies.

  • Step 5

    Bake for about 10-12 minutes in the oven. Take cookies out of the oven and let them cool down on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes. Repeat the process until the cookie dough is gone.

  • Step 6

    Enjoy with coffee and store leftover cookies in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
