Cinnamon Nut Cookies

This is essentially a recipe that I found online but I don't remember where.  If it looks familiar please let me know who to credit :)  It's simple, my kids love it, and is a great way to use some of those egg whites that I always have left over from other things.


2 egg whites
2 cups of nut flour or nuts that have been soaked and dried
1/4 cup honey
1 T cinnamon


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Beat the egg whites until frothy.

If using nut flour, fold it into the egg whites.  If using nuts, grind them into flour (I use a coffee grinder for this, or you can use a food processor too), then fold them in.  Fold in the other ingredients.

Drop teaspoonfuls of the batter onto a  cookie sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes, until nicely browned.

For variation, you can use different combinations of nut flour and spices as well as flavoring extracts or lemon or orange zest.  


  1. That recipe is from the "Sweet & Snacky" document on the GAPSHelp yahoo group. It's a good one!! It's listed as Walnut Spice Cookies.

  2. Thank you Gina! Yes, now that you mention it, that makes sense. It really is a good one!
