Kid-Friendly Snacks: Back-to-School Volcano Cookies

"Back to School" is about seeing old friends, learning new things, and the birthday snack. These coconut cookies* are gluten-free and sweetened with honey - a delicious nutritious choice, easy to make together with your child.


Wet Ingredients:

1 cup (2 sticks) of butter, room temperature
1/4 cup honey, or maple syrup
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Dry Ingredients:

3/4 cup coconut flour

1/4 cup almond flour (Bob's Red Mill, or grind raw almonds in a food processor, measure)
1 cup coconut shreds
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt


Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the wet ingredients in one bowl.

Mix the dry ingredients in another bowl.

Combine the wet and dry ingredients, mixing thoroughly.

Scoop a spoonful of dough and roll it into about a 1-1/2" ball.  Place the balls 1/2" apart on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Press the balls gently with your fingers into a volcano shape.

Bake 12 - 14 minutes, until cooked through and the bottom is brown.  Cool.

Makes about 2 dozen cookies, depending on size of balls.
