The ultimate Paleo Walnut Cookies. They taste incredible and are so easy to make. Only 3 main ingredients.
These Paleo walnut cookies are made with just 3 main 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.
Paleo Walnut Cookies – Perfect Healthy Dessert
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.

I made these today and they were delicious! I had to make one change, I didn’t have powdered coconut sugar, so I used 1/2 cup powdered monkfruit and a 1/3 cup granulated coconut sugar, and then last minute I decided to add a dash of cloves. They reminded me so much of oatmeal cookies, just so good! Next time I’ll add some raisins. But I’ve already eaten more than I should, they are really tempting!
So glad to hear that you loved them! The addition of cloves sounds delicious!
I’m doing an anti-inflammatory diet where I can’t have any sugar or sugar substitutes, but fruit is allowed. So for sweetness I added raisins and dates to the walnuts when I ground them up. My first batch needed twice as many dates, but otherwise, they turned out really tasty. I also used the whole egg.
Can i use honey instead of sugar for this recipe?
Hi! I haven’t tried it with honey and I am not sure if it will work because honey is liquid and coconut sugar is not. Let me know how it turns out if you try it with honey.
Thanks for such a great but super simple recipe. I was looking for a way to get more walnuts into my diet, and this is it! After reading Gabriela’s comment, I only put in 1/2 cup coconut sugar and it was enough. After reading Renee’s comment, I just ground all of the nuts coarsely and used 2 whole eggs instead of egg whites, and it all held together beautifully without the flour. Yummy!
Very tasty and so easy to make! But, I will add only half a cup of coconut sugar next time, since it’s too sweet. I used 1cup and it was still too sweet, but yammy. Maybe the recipe ment to say 1/3 cup of c sugar not 1 1/3 cup?
These walnut cookies look wonderful. I would love to have a few with a cup of coffee or tea. Yum!
Yes, they go wonderfully with a cup coffee, and even with a cup of milk. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!
These walnut cookies look amazing. Perfect treat! Oh goodness!!
Thanks, Sabrina! Glad you like them!
Your paleo walnut cookies looks delicious. I never tried any cookies without flour, I think I can use your recipe to try it. By the way the watch looks really nice.
Thanks, Swathi! Hope you give this recipe a try, I think you will love it!
Don’t forget to get your $25 off coupon for a wood watch. 🙂
Hi! Thanks for the recipe! I just made these and I wanted to ask you how you made these w/o adding any flour. I had to add about a cup of coconut flour to my batter before I was able to form cookie balls. The final cookie is amazing but definitely needed the coconut flour to be able to form the balls.
Hi Renee, so glad you liked these! You could just use a little bit more ground walnuts if you think the batter was too runny.
