  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1 large egg
  • Zest of 2 lemons
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix the Dry Ingredients:
    • In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, and salt until well combined.
  3. Cream the Butter and Sweetener:
    • In a large bowl, beat the softened butter and honey (or maple syrup) together until light and fluffy. Add the egg, lemon zest, lemon juice, and vanilla extract, and beat until well combined.
  4. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:
    • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until a dough forms. The dough should be slightly sticky but manageable.
  5. Shape the Biscuits:
    • Using a tablespoon or small cookie scoop, drop the dough onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart. Flatten each dough ball slightly with the back of a spoon.
  6. Bake:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  7. Optional Glaze:
    • For an extra touch of lemon flavor, you can drizzle the cooled biscuits with a simple glaze made from powdered sugar and lemon juice.

Tips for Best Results:

  • Fresh Lemons: Use fresh lemons for the zest and juice to ensure the best flavor.
  • Room Temperature Ingredients: Make sure your butter and egg are at room temperature for easier mixing and better texture.
  • Storage: Store the biscuits in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, or refrigerate for longer freshness.
