These Paleo walnut cookies are made with just 5 ingredients (plus pinch of salt) and OMG, they are so so good! Actually, 3 main ingredients, if you are not counting the cinnamon and vanilla. I am really excited about these cookies because they are made with no flour. Yes, that’s right! No flour – just ground walnuts, egg whites and coconut sugar. So easy and so delicious! I also added a little bit of cinnamon and vanilla extract for flavor. That’s all.
These Paleo walnut cookies are also super quick and easy to made. After you prep all your ingredients, you bake them in the oven only for 10 minutes. You should really give it a try if you are craving something sweet and don’t want to indulge in processed store bought sweets. With only 3 main ingredients, they are quick and easy to make and taste incredible.
The texture also turned out amazing. As you can see in the picture below, it came out perfect. Soft on the inside and slightly crunchy on the outside. The ultimate paleo walnut cookies!
They remind me of my childhood – biting into one of these transported me back to my home country of Bulgaria and all my childhood memories.
The sweet smell of cinnamon and vanilla and the aroma of the freshly baked walnuts wafted through the house almost immediately, and I could hardly wait for them to cool a bit before I took a bite. And then a second bite.. and then a few more cookies. I couldn’t stop eating them. I have to say they were delicious – sweet little perfections.
I urge you to make them as I am sure you will love them. I can’t wait to hear from you in the comments below.
