TOTAL TIME :50 minutes
  • 1 1/2 cups raw walnuts
  • 1/4 cup grassfed butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, room temperature (between liquid and solid)
  • 1/4 cup maple sugar (link below for brand)
  • 1 cup spelt flour (sub whole wheat, gluten-free AP or AP)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder (sub 1 1/2 tsp extract, link below for brand)
  1. Add walnuts to a food processor and pulse until they form a fine crumble, slightly chunkier than flour. If you don't have a food processor, hand chop into very small pieces.
  2. In a standing mixer or with a hand-mixer, cream butter and coconut oil together on high until creamy and slightly fluffy, approximately 1 minute.
  3. Add maple sugar and mix, then flour, vanilla and sea salt. Mix everything until just incorporated, then finally add walnut meal until incorporated. Turn dough out onto saran wrap and wrap tightly in a ball. Refrigerate 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Remove from fridge and roll dough into 16 1 1/2 inch balls, spacing them 2 inches apart on baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 18 minutes or until the top is mostly solid to touch (it will harden as it cools). Cool 10 minutes before enjoying.

    Hi, Could you use coconut sugar instead of maple? Thank you in advance!

      Hiit, so I can’t say for sure, but I think it would work!

        Thanks. It’s all I have on hand right now. I’m making them for a charity bake sale tonight so I’ll let you know how they turn out. 🙂
