- Before baking, gently press the balls of cookie dough down a bit since the cookies don’t spread very much.

Golden Turmeric Coconut Cookies (AIP & Top 8 Free)
Filled with turmeric, these AIP grain-free cookies are a fun way to sneak in additional turmeric while adding an extra pop of color and flavor.
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 cup arrowroot powder
- 1 tbsp unflavored gelatin
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tbsp turmeric powder
- 1/4 tsp ginger powder
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup + 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- Icing (optional)
- 1-2 tbsp coconut manna or coconut butter
- Dash of turmeric powder
- Step 1 Preheat the oven to 350°F. Set aside a baking sheet and line with parchment paper.
- Step 2 In a small mixing bowl, fully mix the dry ingredients and set aside.
- Step 3 In a separate medium-sized mixing bowl, mix the wet ingredients.
- Step 4 Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until fully combined.
- Step 5 Using a #50 cookie scoop (4 tsp), gently place the dough onto the baking sheet with parchment paper. Gently flatten the dough onto the baking sheet. If you don’t have a cookie scoop, form the dough into roughly 1.25 inch diameter balls.
- Step 6 Bake for roughly 9-10 minutes and let cool before serving. The gelatin will set as the cookies cool so wait to transfer the cookies to a cooling rack until they are firmer.
- Step 7 If adding icing to the cookies, wait until the cookies have cooled and warm up the coconut butter until melted and smooth. If too thick in texture, add a little coconut oil to thin it out. Add a dash of turmeric and combine well. Gently drizzle icing on top of the cookies and enjoy.
