Grain Free Marshmallow Sugar Cookies

Sugar cookies are a classic cookie recipe in many households. Now with a grain free twist and the addition of a healthier marshmallow and sprinkles, you really can’t go wrong here.

I love a good sugar cookie that is soft and chewy but bursting with flavor. Of course, I always love when recipes have simple ingredients but can produce the same flavors as something you purchase in the store. So when I created this recipe, I began with Almond Flour, an organic Cane Sugar, Coconut Oil, Vanilla Extract, and an Egg. This began the base of my cookie. These cookies have simple ingredients that are good for the soul and the body. They are paleo friendly, grain free, gluten free, and will be a house favorite.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie pan with parchment paper or baking mats.

  4. Place on your baking pan with an inch in between.
  5. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes, then pull out the cookies and smash a marshmallow on top of the cookie and throw some sprinkles on. Then return back to the oven and bake for another 5-8 minutes or until golden brown on the top.

Tips on how to make these cookies the best they can be

  • Can you use other sugars to sweeten the cookies?
    • Absolutely! You can use any kind of sugar to sweeten the cookies. If you choose a sweetener like honey or maple syrup, your cookies could be more runny and you may have to adjust the almond flour amount!
  • Can you use a different flour for the cookie?
    • Yes you substitute almond flour for another flour if you would like. Doing this could alter the way the batter comes out, so you may have to adjust the amount of coconut oil depending on the type of flour. For example, coconut flour absorbs more water and will need more liquid than almond flour does.
  • Can you use regular marshmallows?
    • Yes you can! You can always use regular marshmallows instead of a Smash Mallow. I happened to have these on hand and thought they would be a great addition!
