Lavender Cookies | Vegan + Gluten-Free

These lavender pecan cookies are the best! They’re vegan and gluten-free and so delicious, everyone loves them. Lavender is of course, a well-known medicinal plant used to relieve anxiety, promote sleep, and ease digestive complaints. You can find out more about the medicinal properties of lavender, here.  It’s less well-known as a culinary herb, but I’m ready to change that. Lavender adds a subtle, complex floral note that works in both sweet and savory recipes. After you’ve made these sumptuous cookies, check out these recipes for lavender honey and lavender bitters. 


  • 1-1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tbsp honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tbsp dried Lavender
  • 1/2 cup pecans, finely chopped


Preheat oven to 350°F. Cover baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix almond flour, baking soda, and salt in medium size bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together coconut oil, honey, and vanilla. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix. Fold in lavender and pecans. Form dough into 1 inch balls and gently press onto baking sheet. Bake for 6-7 minutes. Cool on baking sheet. Enjoy with your favorite herbal tea.

Now, if you’re thinking this recipe looks familiar, that’s because I use the same basic recipe to make rosemary pecan cookies. Consider experimenting with some of your favorite herbs. I suspect rose petals, cardamom or thyme would be delicious here.
