  • 2 1/3
    almond flour
  • pinch
    of salt
  • 1
    baking powder
  • grated zest of one lemon
  • 1/2
  • 6
    softened butter
  • 1/2
    vanilla essence
  • 1/2
    coconut flour – to dust surface and handle dough
  • 12
    sugar free apricot jam – or any jam you like



Preheat the oven to 180 °C and prepare an oven safe baking tray with non stick spray.

First off, in a mixing bowl, combine the almond flour with salt, baking powder and zest. Set aside.

In another mixing bowl, whisk the honey, butter and vanilla essence for a few minutes until fully incorporated and foamy.

Combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients until incorporated. Use the extra coconut flour to dust your hands and surface, while working through the dough until you have a manageable, incorporated dough. Cling wrap and refrigerate for 30 min.

Remove the dough from the fridge and roll little small balls that easily fits in the palm of your hand.

Arrange the balls on the baking tray and carefully push a slight indent with your thumb.

Bake for 12 – 15 minutes until golden. Remove from oven and leave to cool.

After cooling time, scoop the jam into the indents on the cookies.
