The nuttiest paleo cookies

Author: Katerina | Once a Foodie


  • 7/8 cup almond meal
  • 1/8 cup linseed (flaxseed) meal (that is, top up the almond meal to a whole cup)
  • 1 cup hazelnut meal
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1 tbsp chopped peanuts (I used these granulated nuts)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 egg (can be omitted)
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • walnut and pecan halves to decorate (you could have either, or both, up to you)


  • Pre-heat your oven to 180C. Grease a cookie sheet and line it with baking paper.
  • Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl, except the walnut and pecan halves, then form the mixture into little round balls, using about 1 tablespoon of mixture per ball.
  • Place the balls on the lined cookie sheet about 5cm apart and flatten them slightly.
  • Place a walnut or pecan half on top of each cookie.
  • Bake in the oven for about 10-12 minutes until golden.
  • Remove from the oven and cool completely on the cookie sheet.
  • Enjoy!
