Using a rolling pin, roll out each piece of dough on a lightly floured work surface to about 3mm thick. Place each piece of dough on a baking tray, cover with cling film and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Lemony Walnut and Cinnamon Cookies

  • Fat – 10 grams
  • Dietary Fibre -9 grams


  • 1 cup walnut halves
  • 1 cup pecan nuts
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 cup brown rice flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar (light or dark)


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius). Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper, or spray with non- stick spray.

In the bowl of a food processor, whir the walnuts, pecan nuts, flaxseeds, lemon zest, flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt until you have a very fine meal.

Take care not to over mix, or you’ll end up with nut butter! Add the agave nectar and process again until the mixture begins to leave the sides of the processor bowl.

It should be moist dough that holds together when squeezed between your fingers. Using a small ¡ce cream scoop or tablespoon, roll mounds of dough into balls and place about two inches (5cm) apart on the cookie sheets.

Wet your palms (or use a silicone spatula) and flatten each ball to about .25 inch (6mm) thick. Bake for 8-10 minutes, rotating the sheets about halfway through baking, until the edges are golden and the cookies are dry on top.

Allow to cool completely before removing from the cookie sheets (these will firm up as they cool).
