Sesame Cookies with Nut Butter and Honey


  • ½ cup sesame seeds
  • ½ cup sunflower seeds
  • ¾ cup honey
  • ¾ cup smooth almond butter (or any nut butter)
  • ¾ cup almond flour
  • ¼ cup unsweetened shredded coconut


  • Preheat oven to 350° F
  • Optional: toast the sesame seeds and sunflower seed in the oven for a few minutes, watch to make sure they don’t burn.
  • In a small saucepan, over medium heat, add the honey and almond butter. Warm, stirring frequently until the mix is well combined and smooth
  • In a large bowl, combine almond flour, shredded coconut, and toasted seeds.
  • Add the warmed honey almond butter mix and stir until well combined. (If your batter is on the runny side, set it in the refrigerator for a half an hour or so to cool)
  • With a spoon, create tablespoon-size balls of dough and spread out on a greased or parchment-lined cookie sheet.
  • With a fork, flatten each ball flat with a crisscross pattern.
  • Bake for 6-8 minutes (but keep an eye on them, you want to make sure the edges don't burn as honey will cook quickly)
