  • Author: Remy
  • Total Time: 15 mins
  • Yield: 24 cookies 1x


A sweet cinnamon cookie with a snap, made with healthy fats and good for you ingredients. Vegan, gluten-free, oil free and refined sugar free. Perfect for spring and kid friendly too.


  • 1 + 1/3 cup gluten free oat flour (I recommend using finely ground oat flour for best results)
  • 1/2 cup runny tahini, or nut/seed butter of choice
  • 1/31/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 12 tsp ground cinnamon
  • more oat flour to roll dough


  • Preheat your oven to 325F.
  • In a large bowl, combine maple syrup, tahini and vanilla extract in a bowl. Whisk to combine until smooth.
  • Sift in oat flour, baking powder and cinnamon and use a spatula to mix.
  • Mix until a dough forms. It should be moist, not sticky, and easily rollable. Add additional oat flour as needed and roll out on parchment paper.
  • Roll dough about 1/4 inch in thickness and using a cookie cutter, cut out your desired shapes. Use excess edge dough and re-roll to continue until all the dough is cut.
  • If desired, use the tip of a fork or chopstick to poke 2 eyes into each bear, and tuck a raw almond in between the bear’s arms.
  • Bake for approximately 5-6 min, keeping in mind the cookies will firm up after baking. Keep an eye on them to make sure they do not burn and remove from oven to a cooling rack to avoid burning.
