Paleo Raspberry Almond Cookies

Eat. Drink. Om., the lululemon athletica Quarry Market event, was a tremendous success! I met some wonderful people and was able to share a taste of Fed & Fit.

I went armed with some Paleo Raspberry Almond Cookies and my almost 4-month old Great Pyrenees, Gus.

I can confidently say that these cookies (and Gus, of course) were a hit.

I will not brag about being a good baker. I’m not. I’m actually pretty terrible. My culinary talents shine when measurements are approximate and my nose measures the cooking time.

I worked through about half a dozen batches before I landed (somewhat accidentally) on the correct chemistry. They are now, however, PERFECT.

These little gluten-free morsels are made of a sweet almond cookie wrapped around a fresh raspberry.

The raspberry melts inside the almond cookie and reminds me, somewhat, of a stuffed donut hole.

Do I have your attention yet?

They’re absolutely delicious and best when freshly cooled from the oven.

I hope you enjoy!

Gus wants to know if you're going to finish that …

Paleo Raspberry Almond Cookies

Prep Time 15 minutes Cook Time 15 minutes Total Time 0:30 Yields 30 cookies
0.0 rating


  • 3 cups Sifted Almond Meal
  • 30 Fresh Raspberries
  • 1/4 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/3 cup Honey
  • 2 Tbl Liquid Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Almond Extract
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4 cup Sliced Almonds
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients together (almond meal, salt, and baking soda).
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk the wet ingredients together (egg, honey, oil, and almond extract).
  5. Create a crater in the center of the almond flour mixture.
  6. Pour the completely mixed wet ingredient mixture into the crater.
  7. Using a fork, start stirring the wet ingredients into the dry from the inside out.
  8. Keep stirring until you achieve an even consistency.
  9. For ease in forming, refrigerate for approximately 10 minutes.
  10. With a wet washcloth nearby, start forming the cookies.
  11. Spoon approximately 1 Tbl-sized ball and flatten in your hand.
  12. Place a fresh raspberry in the center of your flattened dough.
  13. Carefully wrap the dough around the raspberry. Do not pinch or smash the raspberry during this process.
  14. Once the raspberry is completely covered, roll the dough in your hand so that it is a smooth sphere.
  15. Place on the parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  16. Wipe your hands with the wet cloth (otherwise the dough will start sticking to your hands) and repeat the process until you’ve finished all the dough.
  17. Once finished forming the cookies, take a small amount of water and carefully blot or brush the tops of each cookie. (This is help the almonds and cinnamon stick during baking).
  18. Take a pinch (about 3-4) sliced almonds and place on top of each cookie.
  19. Dust with cinnamon.
  20. Bake for 15 minutes.
  21. Let cool for at least 5 minutes, then ENJOY!

    These have a wonderful flavor and texture. Plus they don’t last very long. Gus is adorable too.

      Good luck!! Remember to keep a wet cloth handy to wipe your hands on, this will keep the dough from sticking to your fingers when you’re forming the cookies. I’d love to know how they turn out!

    Is 15 minutes of baking time enough?

    • #
      fedandfitposted December 10, 2012 at 4:07 pm

      It should be. You can leave them in a minute or two longer if they don’t look done.

      You’re so amazing! This is the second recipe of yours I’ve tried and it is an amazing cookie. I usually hate Paleo desserts because they are just bad. This cookie is just perfect. I cannot wait until my husband comes home and tries it. Thank you so much!

      By the way your green bean casserole is the bomb and I hate green beans and green bean casserole.

      One more thing…I. am unable to view comments on my computer

    How should I store these?

  6. #
    fedandfitposted December 10, 2012 at 6:04 pm

    They’re fine on the counter in an airtight container for a few days. If you’re going to keep them longer, I recommend the fridge or freezer (for long-term storage).

    Is there any way you could make these with frozen raspberries?

      Hi Catherine! Though U haven’t tried it myself, I’m sure you could! You might need to bake them a minute or two longer. If you give them a try, I’d love to know how they come out!

    Wow! I really can’t get coconut oil at this time (have to wait 10 days), have you made these using anything else? I’m not settled on what to use instead. =)

    Great recipes though. Thank you!

      Hi! You could try butter! I think the quantity for the substitution should be equal. I’d love to know how they work out! 🙂
