Almond Cinnamon Christmas Cookies


It’s been a while since I have written a recipe post and with Christmas just around the corner, the temperature dropping further still I thought it was time I did some baking. There’s no better way to get a sense of hygge or lagom than some good old fashioned baking! It fills the home with warmth and not forgetting the gorgeous aroma of baked goods that makes you feel so good inside.

It took a few tweaks to this recipe to make it work how I wanted it to but I think I finally nailed the ingredients and measurements. If you do try out this recipe do stop by and let me know how it went for you.


  • 1/4 cup Quinoa flour (or gluten free oat flour)

  • 3 /4 cup Almond flour

  • 2 tbsp Coconut palm sugar

  • 2 tbsp Maple syrup

  • 2 tbsp melted Coconut oil

  • 1 tbsp ground Cinnamon

  • 1 tbsp ground Nutmeg

  • 1 tsp Almond extract


  • In a bowl combine all the dry ingredients and mix

  • Add the liquid ingredients and mix until you have a dough consistency

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees centigrade

  • Roll out the cookie dough on a floured surface

  • cut out your cookies using your desired cookie cutter shape (I used festive reindeer ones)

  • Place your cookies on a baking tray lined with baking paper

  • Bake the cookies for 15 to 20 minutes

  • Remove from the oven and set aside to cool

  • Enjoy your cookies with a lovely warm drink like a festive mulled wine or cider!


Merry Christmas!
