I’m REALLY into cooking with lavender right now! The mood struck one day and I have been creating everything from lavender coconut cake to lavender mint water. I even made lavender lamb chops. YUMMM!
Anyway, today I wanted to share a tasty little recipe for lemon lavender cookie bites. These are a little bit like what I would assume would be served at an afternoon tea party. These lemon lavender cookie bites are crispy yet spongy, thin, and darn addicting! Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
Lemon Lavender Cookie Bites
These gluten free/grainfree/dairyfree lemon lavender cookie bites are a little bit like what I would assume would be served at an afternoon tea party. They are crispy yet spongy, thin, and darn addicting! Don't say I didn't warn you!

- 1/4 cup of sifted coconut flour

- 1 squeeze of lemon juice
- Zest from one medium lemon
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- Mix the almond flour, coconut flour, and baking powder together into a bowl. Set aside.
- Beat eggs for 3 minutes with an electric mixer until fluffy.
- Add the raw honey, coconut oil and vanilla. Combine well.

Looks fantastic! I never know how to use lavendar in cooking, somehow it never seems like a sweets kind of herb, more savoury in my opinion, but lemon seems like it would be a good thing to mix it with.
Just fyi, I think you meant to say “1/2 teaspoon” baking powder, but you left out the “teaspoon” part. Might end up confusing someone, so I thought I’d let you know.
Thanks Aisha! I fixed that goof up!
I wasted my last 4 eggs on this recipe, and it was nothing but a wet mess. Such a disappointment. 🙁
Hi Megan! Did you make any substitutions or follow the recipe as written? That is so odd because I make this recipe a lot and have not had that happen. I would like to troubleshoot so this doesn’t happen again!
Lovely recipe, only it says vanilla in the method but I can’t find it in the ingredients, might be my eyes. Still came out lovely. Thank you for a lovely recipe. Sarah
Oh my gosh! Thank you for catching this. You can use 1 tsp vanilla. I am glad it worked still! 🙂
