As if they weren’t cute enough, slap some homemade coconut sugar sprinkles on them and call it a fuzzy sweater. Brrrrr, it’s cold out there, these Teddy Grahams need to stay warm. Package them in your own baggie with a handwritten “Beary Christmas” (who’s punny now?) sign. What better way to welcome yourself to eat cookies? I can think of nothing better.

Homemade sprinkle sweaters are completely optional but also come highly recommended.Print

Surprise your little ones with these decadent, yet healthy homemade version of Cinnamon Teddy Grahams.
- 3/4 c. almond meal, not flour
- 1/4 c. arrowroot powder
- 2 Tbsp. coconut flour
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. sea salt
- 3 Tbsp. raw honey (use maple syrup for vegan)
- 2 Tbsp. coconut oil
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. Add in the wet ingredients until a nice dough forms. At this point the dough should be moist, not sticky.
- Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
- Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Line your counter with a piece of parchment paper and lightly sprinkle with almond meal to keep the dough from sticking. Use a mini teddy bear cookie cutter and place 2 small dough balls for the belly and nose. Press gently down and create belly button, nose and eyes with a toothpick.
- Bake for 6-8 minutes or until the cookies are lightly browned. Allow to cool on the baking sheet and then transfer to a wire rack so they can crisp up.

Cinnamon Teddy Grahams Recipe Notes:
- You don’t have to go to the extreme of creating the bellies and noses. You can always just cut out the teddy bear shapes and call it a day. But then they would be so sad and incomplete. More trouble on your end, sure, but come on! It’s Christmas!
- If you are looking for a chocolate version (and nut-free), here is a Homemade Chocolate Teddy Graham recipe.
- Want to keep the cinnamon flavor but still go nut-free? Use this gluten-free flour guide post for help to decide a great substitute. I also recommend my flour blend as a great substitute. Just keep in mind that the flours all have different liquid absorption so you might need to add a tablespoon or two of nondairy milk to create a nice dough. Do the recipe as is and see if you will need it in the end.
- The coconut flour lends a very nice sweetness to the cookies however it also makes them a little softer. You can omit if you’d like to create a nice crunch. Use almond meal in place of.
- To make vegan, use maple syrup instead of raw honey.
I made these for my son and honestly ended up eating most of them myself. I am making two batches this week. They are soooo yummy!!
