Festive Green Christmas Cookies with Cassava & Coconut Flour

  • Author: Shannon Doleac


  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar, plus extra for garnish
  • Scant 1 cup cassava flour
  • 1 cup walnuts, finely chopped, or ground in food processor

  • 30 drops plant-based, all-natural green food coloring


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Add butter, sugar, and almond extract to a medium mixing bowl. Cream together until smooth with a hand mixer.
  3. Blend in flour, walnuts, and green coloring.
  4. Shape dough into approx. 1″ diameter balls (I like to use a cookie scoop), and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes.
  6. Roll in coconut sugar, or green decorating sugar, while still hot.


Makes 24 – 30 cookies
