The Most Decadent Flourless Cookies You Will Ever Have

Jump to recipe

This post is late for Passover. I know. I’m sorry.

BUT! These cookies are great any time of the year, for any holiday, and for just about any occasion!


Passover Coconut Cookies


They are rich and coconutty, with crisp caramelized edges and delicate chewy interiors. It is important to note that these are flourless and gluten-free. You can swap out the almond flour for another nut – cashews would be lovely.

Another selling point? This is a one-bowl recipe! I used the KitchenAid stand mixer, but you could easy use a sturdy bowl and hand mixer Use the weight measurements and you won’t need measuring cups either. Convenience and decadence. Unbeatable!

Passover Coconut Cookies


I featured these and other cookies at my annual Passover afternoon tea (post forthcoming). It was so lovely to have these during the holiday because they don’t feel like an imitation of another cookie. They stand up proudly for what they are – a luscious, buttery, butterscotch-y cookie!

Say it loud! Say it proud! Insanely Good Flourless Coconut Cookies!


Flourless Coconut Cookies


The recipe is adapted from Smitten Kitchen’s post on the City Bakery’s original recipe. I halved the recipe, didn’t brown the butter, doubled the vanilla, and replaced the flour with almond meal. I got 28 cookies using a one tablespoon-sized scoop.

For the love of all that is holy and convenient, use a digital scale! You will only need a bowl and a spoon or two.



    • Thank you! They are chewier than Florentines, but still very caramely-butterscotchy! I hope you like them!
