The fluffiest, cakiest red velvet crinkle cookies you’ll find – without the gluten or dairy!



  • 2 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbsp collagen peptides
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup avocado oil
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp red food coloring
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar (for rolling)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine wet ingredients and mix thoroughly. Make sure egg yolks are well blended
  2. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and mix thoroughly
  3. At this point, cookie dough should be bright red! If not, add some more red food coloring, since different companies’ food coloring strengths may vary
  4. Scrape all sides of the bowl down and form one large cookie dough ball at the bottom
  5. Chill dough in refrigerator for minimum 3 hours, or overnight
  6. Later, or the next day, preheat oven to 350˚F
  7. Add 1/4 cup powdered sugar to a small, wide-mouthed bowl
  8. With a large cookie dough scoop, create balls of cookie dough
  9. Roll the dough in the bowl of powdered sugar, and place on a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet
  10. Repeat until out of dough
  11. Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes, and let cool before serving. Enjoy!


For a true paleo recipe, omit powdered sugar step! These recipe would be great for a standalone paleo red velvet cookie
