Dulce De Leche Cookies (Grain Free & Dairy Free)



Dulce De Leche

1 can coconut milk, unsweetened & full fat

1/2 cup pure maple syrup

3 Tbsp. honey

1 tsp. vanilla

1 pinch sea salt


1/2 cup almond flour

1/2 cup nut butter – My favorite for these cookies is cashew butter for it’s mild flavor, but you can use any type.

1/4 cup honey

1 tsp. vanilla

2 eggs

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. sea salt

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/4 cup raw cashew pieces, optional


Dulce De Leche

In a small sauce pan over medium heat, add the coconut milk, maple syrup, honey, vanilla and sea salt.

With a whisk, stir constantly until mixture begins to boil.

Reduce heat to medium low, and keep at a slow boil and stir occasionally until mixture becomes thick and reduces to about 1/3 of the original amount. This may take 20-30 minutes, so prepare the cookies while it boils down.


Preheat oven to 350° Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

Using a hand mixer combine all the cookie ingredients together, except for the cashew pieces, and mix until smooth and creamy.

Drop by spoonful onto the baking dish and bake for 8-10 minutes.

Allow cookies to cool completely.

Place a dollop of prepared Dulce De Leche on each cookie and sprinkle with cashew pieces if desired.

This is best done when the Dulce De Leche is still warm.
