SCD Chewy Butter Cookies

One of the things I miss most about “regular” food is a quick snack like cookies! I have been trying out all kinds of mixtures of the “healthy” foods I am allowed to have in hopes of finding a SCD cookie. After many failed attempts I have a winner that is so good even my picky daughter begs for more of these “healthy” cookies.

SCD Cookies

 Nobody believes me that there is no sugar or all purpose flour in them.


These are the only cookies I will let my daughter have extra of because I’m not worried about all the bad ingredients with these delicious cookies.

What you will need:

1/3 cup Coconut Flour

1 cup Almond Flour

3/4 stick of butter

2 teaspoons of Vanilla Extract

1/2 teaspoon of Baking Soda

1 egg

2/3 cup of honey

Line a baking sheet with Parchment Paper and Preheat your oven to 350 degrees

Mix all ingredients on high with mixer. Shape cookies into balls and then flatten slightly with the palm of  your hand when placing them on the baking sheet. Bake for about 8-12 minutes and Enjoy!

This recipe will make 24 small cookies which are a more dunk able crispier cookie or 12 larger more chewy cookies. You can make half and store the dough in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Did you try this recipe? Tell me how it turned out by commenting below!

Yes I am thinking that there needs to be more to the recipe like it's some gum or something that makes it mix up better and stand up better because they're very flat and they don't look good. I haven't tried it yet but I'm sure they are good I just want them to look very good I want them to look. Bakery good you know

Hi Verna! This is the basic recipe, nothing else is needed. I made these cookies pretty large which led to the shape but if you cut the size down you may have a better-looking cookie. Also, this is an old recipe that I posted long ago, now that I have upgraded my equipment I may need to take some new photos to display how these cookies could look. Thanks for taking the time to comment and let me know, I will be sure to update soon.

I made these yesterday and they were SOOO good. The batter seemed too soft, but I made them anyway and they turned out perfectly delicious and chewy. Yum. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

These cookies are DELICIOUS!!!!!! but they were super soft and fell apart! Why would that be? What could I do differently? Thanks!!

Thanks for stopping by Holly. I'm sorry your cookies are falling apart, I hate when that happens! I haven't had this problem with this particular recipe but a number of things could have happened. You could try troubleshooting with some of these tried and true methods, chill the dough before baking or possibly add in a little less flour. I hope you find a solution that works for you and please let me know what you find out. Thanks again!
