Lemon and almond IS the superior combination, so imagine that in cookie form! Please make these lemon almond sugar cookies, you won't regret it! I swear! Okay, enough said haha, I'm gonna go eat another one now!


YIELD: 12 servings

TIME: 25 mins.


- 2.5 tbsp water

- 1 tbsp ground flaxseed

- 1.25 cups almond flour

- 1/4 cup arrowroot flour

- 1/2 tsp baking soda

- 1/4 tsp sea salt

- 1/4 cup vegan butter (melted and cooled)

- 1/4 cup almond butter

- 1/4 cup maple syrup

- 1/4 cup organic cane sugar

- 1/2 tbsp lemon juice

- The zest of 2 lemons

- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

- 1/2 tsp almond extract

- 1/2 cup sliced almonds



  1. First we're going to create a flax egg, by combining the water with the ground flaxseed, the set aside. Also preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Add the almond flour, arrowroot flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium sized mixing bowl.

  3. In a separate large bowl, whisk together the almond butter, vegan butter, maple syrup, cane sugar, flax egg, both extracts, lemon zest, and juice until a smooth mixture remains.

  4. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredient bowl, until a well incorporated, cookie dough has been formed. Now place the bowl with the dough in it, in the fridge to chill for about 15-20 mins.

  5. Use a medium sized ice cream scoop to scoop the dough into even balls, and place wisely on the prepared baking sheet as they will spread out quite a bit. Don't forget to top your cookies with the sliced almonds as well (if you fancy ;).

  6. Bake for 12 minutes or until they turn a light brown shade. Remove from the oven, after fully baked, and allow them at least 5 minutes to cool before attempting to transfer onto a wired cooling rack.

  7. Enjoy!!
