  • 1/3 cup grade A dark amber maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1 Tbsp Great Lakes gelatin (red/orange can)

  • ½ tsp cinnamon

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In a small bowl combine the melted butter/ghee/coconut oil with maple syrup, vanilla and almond extracts and set aside.

  • In a large bowl or in a food processor, combine the almond flour, gelatin, cardamom, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.
  • Stir in the butter mixture and mix with a hand mixer or in the food processor until the dough starts to come together in a ball – about 30 seconds in the food processor.
  • Lastly add in the pecans, chocolate chips, figs, and coconut flakes. This may be easiest if you use your hands
  • On a parchment-lined baking sheet, use about 3 tablespoons of dough per cookie and form into a ball. Press down to form the thickness of the cookie you desire.
  • Bake for 12-13 minutes or until the edges are just barely golden brown.
