AIP Cinnamon Sugar Cookies

Mmmmm… sugar cookies. You really can’t go wrong with them. It’s always a crowd favorite!

It’s the first week of quiet after our wedding, now that all the events are over and my parents left to go back to South Korea this past weekend. The past month has been crazy and wonderful at the same time and my parents have contributed so much energy and effort into the wedding events, not to mention traveling an insane amount, that I thanked them by doing what I do best: cooking dinner and baking them treats.

Since my mom has rheumatoid arthritis, and it’s difficult to stick to the autoimmune protocol in Korea, she always requests that I make a dessert for her that she can bring back home and enjoy. And this time, I decided to make a big batch of this AIP cinnamon sugar cookies!

You can make these without the coconut butter frosting, but it seriously makes such a difference with that moist layer. Plus, it adds a touch of sweetness without added sugar that I love.

I truly enjoy creating these recipes for my mom, because it allows me to help others out there who are also on restrictive diets. Just because you can’t have certain foods, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t indulge in sweet treats from time to time. You just gotta get a bit more creative in the kitchen!

I hope you enjoy these AIP cinnamon sugar cookies as much as my parents did!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together coconut flour, tapioca starch, cinnamon, sea salt, and baking soda.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together gelatin and room-temperature water. Add hot water and whisk until the gelatin is dissolved.
  5. Add maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla extract to the gelatin mixture and whisk together.
  6. Slowly add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, while stirring with a fork.
  7. Mix until combined and moldable.
  8. Using rounded tablespoons, drop the cookie dough on the parchment paper. It might seem sticky, but it'll be easier to work once they are dropped.
  9. Wet your hands slightly and roll the dropped dough into balls and flatten them.
  10. Bake for 10-15 minutes until the edges are golden, but the cookies are still soft.
  11. Let cool for 15 minutes. The cookies will harden as they cool.
  12. Warm up coconut butter in the microwave or stovetop until slightly melted, but still thick and creamy. Spoon gently over cookies, and sprinkle with cinnamon. Let cool completely before serving.The coconut butter will solidify once cooled.

      Hey there! I’ve never tried with arrowroot starch but I think you can try it without changing the recipe too much. It may alter the texture a bit because tapioca starch gives the cookies that chewiness. But I think you’ll still be able to make the cookies with the same taste.. Let me know how it turns out!

      I’m not sure if anything can substitute coconut butter, but you can leave it out or try just using coconut cream with a bit of honey or maple syrup. It won’t solidify the same way though but it’ll still be tasty!

    Hey Jean! Super excited to try these cookies. Just wondering if I could substitute collagen for the gelatin? I have collagen on hand already and was curious if it would alter the recipe a lot if I used that instead. Thanks!

      Unfortunately, gelatin is necessary because it acts as an egg substitute and a binder in the recipe. If you can tolerate eggs, you can omit gelatin and water, and just make it with 1 egg instead.

    I made this with banana instead of gelatin (THANK YOU SPOONIE SOPHIA) and it was DELICIOUS! Being without bread and cookies has been one of the hardest aspects of going AIP for me so I feel very lucky to have found this recipe. Thank you for sharing 🙂

    YUM!!! I used 1 TBSP of banana instead of gelatin since I didn’t have any. These are SO delish! I’ve missed cookies so badly since doing the AIP diet. Definitely worth it to make these, super easy and tasty!
