For cookies:

  • 2 Tablespoons ORGANIC INDIA Cinnamon Spice Psyllium Pre & Probiotic Fiber
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon cream of tartar (optional for traditional tang)
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ cup organic coconut oil, softened
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • ¼ cup unsweetened almond or other non-dairy milk
  • ½  cup coconut or monk fruit sweetener
  • ½ teaspoon ORGANIC INDIA Ceylon Cinnamon, optional for extra spice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

For rolling

  • 1 Tablespoon ORGANIC INDIA Cinnamon Spice Psyllium Pre & Probiotic Fiber
  • 1 teaspoon ORGANIC INDIA Ceylon Cinnamon
  • 3 Tablespoons monk fruit sweetener or coconut sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F and line a baking sheet with silpat or parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, mix 1 Tablespoon ORGANIC INDIA Ceylon Cinnamon with ¼ Cup monkfruit sweetener or coconut sugar. Set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, whisk almond and gluten-free flours, ORGANIC INDIA Cinnamon Spice Psyllium Pre & Probiotic Fiber, baking powder, sea salt, and ORGANIC INDIA Ceylon Cinnamon, if using. Mix well to thoroughly distribute the psyllium.
  4. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add the softened coconut oil, sugar, applesauce, almond milk and vanilla. Mix lightly to combine wet ingredients before stirring to combine with dry. The dough should be thick and moldable. If needed, sprinkle with extra flour to reach this consistency.
  5. Cover and chill for 30 minutes, then gently roll into balls. Roll each ball in the cinnamon-sugar topping and arrange 1-inch apart on the baking sheet. Press lightly with your hand or the back of a spoon before baking to flatten slightly.
