Lemon Coconut Cookies

Serves: 5

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! We had some beautiful weather in NJ! I mean just gorgeous! So, of course, that meant getting outside and taking advantage of it! I went to the park,  put my headphones on and took a nice leisurely walk…..just the sun and some relaxing music! It couldn’t have been more peaceful! I wish every day was like that! 🙂

But now that we are back on a rainy Monday, let’s enjoy this cookie recipe and hopefully that will bring some sunlight to our day! These delicious treats are very simple to put together and taste amazing! Maybe that bright lemon flavor will help bring some light to your day! I hope you enjoy! 🙂

  • Do you think you could sub coconut flour for the almond flour? I'm allergic to nuts :(

  • These look so light and tasty! And I love small batch cookies--perfect to make quickly when the mood strikes.

  • Yum! These look delicious (as always!) I think the best way to brighten a gloomy day is to do something you love and stay warm and dry (because I don't know about you, but I get seriously grumpy when I'm wet and cold). For me, that's cooking! My favourite cookie would have to be an oatmeal cookie - they've always been a winner for me and I was so glad an old family friend taught me how to make them when I was younger.

  • YUM!! I've been craving cookies like none other lately and I keep falling back on almond meal chip cookies but these sound amazing! Getting pinned! boom!

    These look really good. Do you think you could make them into a lemon poppy cookie? I'm not a fan of coconut, but I do love coconut oil. Maybe add a sprinkle of poppy seeds, fresh lemon zest and lemon juice, stevia, and a dash of lemon zest on top???
