Let's Do This!
Preheat your oven to 350F or 175C.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the Wet ingredients from above. Whisk until well combined. As a note, the butter and sweetener may separate as you combine them. This is a reaction between the two and will not impact the recipe. It just looks odd if you've never seen it.
In a medium sized mixing bowl, combing the Dry ingredients from above. Whisk to break any clumps and combine.
Slowly add the Dry ingredients into the Wet ingredients while mixing. I like to do this in three parts.
Once all of the wet and dry ingredients are combined, set the dough aside for 2-3 minutes to allow to coconut flour to absorb some moisture.
On a shallow plate, combine the Topping ingredients with a fork.
Divide the dough into 12 portions. Roll each portion into a ball.
Coat each dough ball in the Topping blend before placing it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Lightly flatten the dough to make a puck shape.
Bake for 12-14 minutes, until edges are just starting to turn golden brown. Do not overcook these.
Allow the cookies to cool completely before touching them or they can fall apart.
Once cool, enjoy.
