Lemon and Nutmeg Cookies

Easy, dairy free, gluten free, vegan cookie recipe

At the end of a long day, when you want to curl up with a good book and a warm malty drink, these lemony and nutmeg cookies are the perfect treat with a raw malted oat milk. Notes:

  • Raw baking is a science, so make sure you follow the precise measures to get the best results from this recipe

  • Invest in some measuring cups and spoons for accurate results.

  • Bring all your ingredients to room temperature before using. This will make the dough easier to mix.

  • Use a large mixing bowl. This may sound strange but you need plenty of room to mix the ingredients together.

  • If you want to make shaped cookies using cutters, chill your cookie dough for 30 minutes for it to firm up a little. This means that you will get really sharp edges on your shaped cookies.


Lemon and Nutmeg Cookies


  • 1 ¼ cups cashew nuts ground very finely

  • 1 cup ground almonds

  • 2 cups oat flour

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup maple syrup

  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar

  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract

  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • Some lemon zest to decorate


  1. In a bowl mix together the finely ground cashew nuts, ground almonds, oat flour and salt until well combined.

  2. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well until the mixture forms a cookie dough.

  3. Form into cookies by rolling between two pieces of teflex and cutting to shape with a cookie cutter. Dust with a grating of nutmeg and lemon zest. Roll the cookie dough about ¼ inch thick and cut into shapes. Using this method, the mix should yield 35 - 40 cookies, depending on size and shape.

  4. Place directly onto the mesh sheet in a dehydrator. Dehydrate at 115F for 12 hours, flip the cookies and continue to dehydrate for a further 4 – 8 hours depending on how you would like the consistency of your cookies.

No dehydrator? No problem

If you don’t have a dehydrator, you can freeze the cookies on a metal tray lined with baking parchment and enjoy them straight from the freezer.
