GF Sugar and Spice Arrowroot Cookies


  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 cup raw sugar (you can use brown sugar too)
  • stevia –1 tsp (add 2 if you want them extra sweet)
  • banana
  • 1 egg (or flax egg is vegan)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup ARROWROOT flour
  • 1 cup all purpose GF flour (or flour of choice)
  • 3 tbsp coconut flour- I also used a lot on my hands and on parchment paper to roll the dough into balls then press with fork.
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • cinnamon and ground cloves (about 1/2 tsp of each)
  • powdered sugar (optional)


  1. Mix applesauce, sugar, and banana together in bowl. Beat in egg and vanilla.
  2. Stir remaining ingredients together and add. Mix well or use beater on low. Add a little more applesauce if it get to be too dry.
  3. Flour your counter and transfer dough. Make sure to cover your hands in flour as well in order to keep it from getting to gooey.
  4. Roll into 1-2 inch balls. Place them on a greased baking sheet and press down with fork.
  5. Bake in 350 degree F (175 degrees C) oven until golden, about 8 to 10 minutes. Allow a bit more baking time if rolled thicker.
  6. Once out of the oven and cooled. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and cinnamon. This of course is optional but it’s WORTH IT!
