I love these cookies.  I want to eat them every day this fall, they taste perfect for autumn.  Once I perfected the recipe I couldn’t wait to share it with you all.  These have a good old-fashioned apple spice taste and are simple to make!


Yet another recipe made with Cassava Flour, I told you this was my favorite paleo flour to use! These were a bit addictive.  Soft and very flavorful, these paleo apple spice cookies are a great gluten-free option for fall gatherings!

Apple, cinnamon and nutmeg come together nicely to flavor these cookies, and the sweetness of the maple syrup adds the perfect touch to the flavor profile.  These cookies taste like a breezy fall afternoon.  Or, at least, that’s what I think about when I bite into these cookies, even if the weather in Texas isn’t very fall-like yet.

Gluten-free Apple Spice Cookies

These Paleo Apple Spice Cookies will definitely be a repeat recipe this fall, I will be making these again, and again! My mouth is watering just thinking about them.  I just love eating apple-flavored dishes in the fall, and these cookies had the right amount of cinnamon, maple and nutmeg to taste like an old-fashioned fall apple-cookie!
