    Lavender Vanilla Cookies Recipe

    Lavender Vanilla Cookies Recipe

    Lavender is one of my favorite floral scents. I also love the flavor of the pretty purple flower. I recently purchased a bag of dried lavender so that I could create my own food and skin care recipes. After browsing a couple of recipes for lavender cookies, I came up with my own using my new dried lavender and some coconut flour that I had bought to try. The resulting lavender vanilla cookie is light, crispy, perfect with a cup of hot coffee, and full of delicate lavender flavor!

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup of cane or white sugar
    • 4 tablespoons of dried lavender
    • 1/2 cup of softened butter
    • 1/2 cup of coconut oil
    • 1 egg
    • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
    • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
    • 1/2 cup of coconut flour
    • 2 cups of whole wheat flour

    Directions

    1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
    2. Combine 1/2 cup of cane or white sugar with 2 tablespoons of dried lavender.
    3. Blend to chop the lavender.
    4. Combine the lavender sugar and remaining 1/2 cup of sugar in a large bowl.
    5. Cream together the sugar, butter, coconut oil, egg, and vanilla.
    6. Combine the coconut flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda, and remaining lavender in a small bowl.
    7. Slowly stir the dry mixture into the wet mixture.
    8. Place one-inch balls of dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
    9. Bake for 14 minutes or until slightly browned.
    10. Allow the cookies to cool before removing from the parchment paper.
    11. Store the lavender vanilla cookies in an airtight container.
