Paleo Grinch Cookies (AIP)



  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca starch
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 12 tsp matcha powder (amount will vary depending on how green your match powder is)
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3 tbsp frosting (this for AIP or this )
  • 1/2 tsp beet powder (may need more depending on desired color)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper that’s lightly greased
  2. Using a medium mixing bowl, sift together the coconut flour, tapioca, and baking soda
  3. Add in the coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla and mix until the batter is wet and well combined
  4. Stir in 1 tsp of matcha powder and mix until the dough is green. Add more matcha powder if needed.
  5. Form the dough into cookies (you should have 6 or 7) and place onto the baking sheet
  6. Bake the cookies for 10 minutes, or until fully cooked through
  7. Remove from the baking sheet and allow to cool… they will be more likely to crumble more easily if they’re not cooled
  8. After the cookies have cooled, for the optional frosting heart, stir the frosting with beet powder until you have your desired color and use a knife, or a pipping bag to add on a small heart
  9. Serve and enjoy!
