Thyme and Sea Salt Cookies


I saw an original cookie recipe with thyme and sea salt somewhere, so I decided to take the regular almond flour cookie recipes and give it a whirl. I like the savory sweet combo, plus I don’t like overly sweet desserts. I was pleasantly surprised with the turnout as well. They were the perfect texture too.

Thyme and Sea Salt Cookies

  • 1 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 tsp unrefined sea salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp thyme
  • Sea Salt

To Make: Mix dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, and thyme. Add in the vanilla and honey. Roll into balls and flatten into cookies. Take a grinder of sea salt, and spread across the top of each cookie. Bake at 325. That’s it. Garnish with some fresh thyme sprigs.

    1. Thank you for the kind words. I love to play with herbs and I don’t like overly sweet treats. When someone tells me they are bored with eating, I say play with your seasonings and create layers of flavor!

  1. are you sure about your quantities? 1/4 cup honey, 1/8 cup coconut oil and 1 tsp vanilla…….. that’s all the liquid? I have them in the oven now and they went in rather dry……. let’s see what happens……… btw…… how long to bake?

      1. Hmm…that is weird. No I used the coconut oil in place of the butter. I’ve made it tons of times and not had any problems. Sometimes I play with the size of the cookies. Like I remember this post, I made three big cookies with it and they were really tender and chewy. Maybe it could be the flour too, I get mine at Trader Joe’s and like I said they get better each time I make them, ,so I don’t know why yours are so hard. I’ll bake again though and see what I come up with for you. I hope I can figure it out, because they are delicious!
