Lavender Honey Drop Cookies

Lavender almond cookie2

Thank you for all the well wishes. I am still having stomach bug issues but I am trying to keep life simple (trying).

I had to share these yummy cookies with you. I promise this will be the last almond flour recipe for a while. I know it is pricey and something most of you are not cooking with. I want to keep my recipes relevant to you. But at the risk of repeating myself I really love working with the almond flour. These cookies like the last recipe are just mix, roll and bake. So easy. What I also love about these cookies is they have lavender honey. I make herb/lavender honey every year  and love to find ways to use it. Here the honey both sweetens and flavors the cookies. Also I find the almond cookies stay fresh and moist several days. So that is nice.

I hope you have a relaxing Mothers Day. I will not be having mine till next month. Life is too crazy, I want to feel well and enjoy it. Remember to not feel pressured to do anything you do not want to do. If this is a bad weekend, put if off, till a good weekend. Your family is counting on you and you need to take time for you. So you can recharge and be the loving you, your family needs. Motherhood can be a veryyyy thankless job. Two year old's tend not to say "Why thank you mother for putting up with all you have had to." So much of what we do does not even get noticed or appreciated, except by other mothers. Who understand. But there are rewards that YOU can not see yet, that are invisible to you. Keep loving your children unconditionally, have faith in them and take care of yourself xoxox


Lavender Honey Drop Cookies

1/3 cup lavender honey

4 TBL. unsalted butter

1 tsp. vanilla

1/8 tsp. of sea salt

1/4 tsp. of baking soda

2 cups almond flour


Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.

Melt the butter and honey together.

Combine with other ingredients in a mixing bowl, till dough comes together like playdough. I found the dough a bit too wet and need a bit more flour. Just keep adding a bit and stir it in.


Set small balls of dough on parchment paper or greased baking sheet.


With three fingers flatten cookie a bit. Bake for 15 minutes. Lower temp of the oven to 175. Bake the cookies for another 10 minutes. Let cool.

Oh my, just saying the name of the recipe makes my mouth water, "Lavender Honey Drop Cookies". Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.

I do hope you're feeling better soon and shall think good thoughts for you.


I hope you get to feeling better soon, I'm getting worried about you. I love how you spoke about taking care of yourself, putting Mother's Day off until your feeling better. Good for you. A special day can be celebrated anytime you like. BTW, the cookies look way yummy, & love your lamps necklace. Lisa

How perfect for spring! Love your blog, and so fun to connect. Have a Happy Mother's Day!


I just had to smile because my two year old *DOES* say thank you, quite often in fact. She is very articulate and loving. She told me today, "I love you mommy, I love you more!" So sweet!


mmmmm... sounds divine.... We love lavender! Thanks for your thoughts.....Hugs and Happy Mothers Day to you!!! Mica

Hi Clarice, I'm sorry you're still not well! Wise of you to have your Mom's Day when you are able to really enjoy it!

The cookies sound amazing (as do all your recipes cause you're just an amazing cook)! I haven't used almond flour yet. I'm just getting into using agave etc sweetners instead of white sugar. I'm sure I'll make my way to almond flour eventually!

Feel better and have a good weekend!

This recipe looks amazing Clarice...I can't wait to try it (I am lovin' almond flour)! So sorry you're still under the weather. I hope you feel better soon (have you tried ginger tea and/or acidopholis sp?). I hope you enjoy a wondrous mother's day my friend. Keeping you in my best thoughts.
Love and hugs,


So sorry you are not feeling well, Clarice! It is no fun being ill for so long.
I have had a soar throat for several days now and have no energy to do anything! I chalk it up to all the strange weather we have had here in WA. Hope is settles down soon.
Your cookies sound delicious! And as Lena said, perfect with tea! I have some almond flour that is wanting to be used up and I think this is just the ticket! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
p.s. Do you keep your own bees for the honey? :~P



These look delicious! You always have the best recipes! I hope you get well soon and I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day!




These sound similar to shortbread, but with almond flour, yummy!
I hope you get to feeling back to your self soon. Make sure to get lots of rest and those cookies!


Thank you for the lovely recipe. I love lavender and honey. Please feel better soon and have a WONDERFUL Mother's Day!!! xoxo Theresa


I'm sorry you're still not feeling well. I hope things will be much better soon.

These cookies sound really, really lovely. I love honey, and lavender is such an interesting flavor. I bet these will be perfect served with tea.

You take good care of yourself.
