These healthier birthday cake cookies are delicious no matter the occasion! They only require 10 ingredients & can be whipped up in under 20 minutes! Made with grain-free, dairy-free & refined sugar-free ingredients!


  • 1 cup Almond flour
  • 1/4 cup Coconut oil, softened (or butter/ghee)
  • 1/2 cup Coconut sugar (use Lakanto for a lower sugar option)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp Pink salt
  • 1 tsp Almond extract
  • 2 tbsp Coconut flour
  • 1/3 cup collagen peptides, optional*
  • 1/4 cup White chocolate chips (use dairy-free if desired)
  • Sprinkles, to top off if desired*


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F & line a baking tray with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. With an electric beater or stand mixer (or by hand using a spatula) beat the coconut oil & coconut sugar together.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients for the cookies to combine & mix until everything is well incorporated.
  4. Let sit in the fridge for 10-15 minutes.
  5. Roll a spoonful of the batter into a ball.
  6. Place the balls on your prepared baking tray, pressing down slightly. I like to add a couple chocolate chips to the top & then a few sprinkles to each cookie before baking.
  7. Bake for 9-12 minutes, remove from the oven & let cool slightly on the pan for at least 10 minutes. This gives a super fudgey final cookie. If you want a crunchier cookie, bake for 15 minutes.
  8. Enjoy!


*To keep this recipe dairy-free, make sure to use dairy-free white chocolate or dark chocolate chips.
