Ingredients

for the almond flour cookie:

  • 1 1/4 cup (140 g) almond flour I use blanched super fine almond flour
  • 1/3 cup (40 g) tapioca starch
  • 1/4 test baking soda
  • 1/8 test salt
  • 2 s tablespoon powdered sugar or use cane sugar or light brown sugar

Wet ingredients:

  • 1 respond semi solid refined coconut oil measure when semi solid, melt before using
  • 1/2 test vanilla extract
  • 1 test lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) maple syrup

for the blueberry streusel topping:

  • 1/4 cup of dough from above
  • 2 s tablespoon almond flour
  • 1 respond brown sugar
  • a generous pinch salt
  • 1/8 test cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup (75 g) blueberries preferably fresh, wash throroughtly and pat dry if using frozen berries

Instructions

  • Make the cookie base: In a bowl, add the dry ingredients and make sure to mix really well. Press and mix so that the almond flour lumps break down.

  • Then melt the coconut oil. Add to the bowl. Add the vanilla extract, lemon juice and room temperature maple syrup to the dry ingredients.

  • Mix really well until you get a dough. The dough will be somewhat sticky. That’s okay. Chill it for 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Once the dough is not too sticky, remove 1/4 cup of the dough into another bowl. Then chill the rest of the dough for another 10-15 mins while you mix the streusel, line the baking sheet and preheat the oven to 335 deg f (165 deg c).

  • Make the streusel: In the bowl with the 1/4 cup dough, add the almond flour, brown sugar, a generous pinch of salt and cinnamon, and mix really well. Mix to make a slightly dry mixture. Add more almond flour if needed a teaspoon at a time. then add the blueberries and mix in.

  • Remove the chilled dough from the fridge. Then using a cookie scoop, divide the dough into equal portions. I use 1.5 or 2 tablespoon cookie scoop.

  • Flatten these scoops onto a parchment lined baking sheet. (I usually double line the baking sheet with parchment because if your baking sheet is too thin, the almond flour bottom can start to brown really quickly). Then top these cookies with the blueberry streusel mixture.

  • Spread the streusel mixture evenly on all the cookies. The base cookies spread a lot so you want to cover a good portion of the top with the cookie mixture and not just the center. Lightly press the streusel in.

  • Bake at 335 degrees Fahrenheit for 13 to 15 minutes, depending on your baking sheet and the oven. Until the edges are golden.

  • Then remove the cookies from the oven. They will be somewhat soft. Let them cool for ten minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely and enjoy.

  • Store these cookies on the counter for the day and refrigerate for up to a week.

Notes

  • These are best with fresh berries. If using frozen, thaw and wash them and then dry well and use. I use a mix of fresh and frozen wild blueberries as I really enjoy the mix of different sizes
  • the cookies spread quite a bit so make sure to not place them too close together on the sheet
  • If you want, drizzle them with some lemon juice and sugar glaze
