This is a terrible, horrible, no good very bad picture of these heavenly cookies. These are the brilliant invention of Mariel Hemingway, whose new book, Mariel's Kitchen, is a must-have in any healthy kitchen. I consider her culinary point of view a personal inspiration and her sweet, balanced and wholesome Blisscuits are literally a staple in my home.


This recipe makes 60 Blisscuits or 32 oz of dough (I like to bake the whole recipe and freeze the leftovers-a cold Blisscuit is actually amazing on a hot day).

2 cups almond meal
1 cup plus 2 tbsp whey protein isolate powder (feel free to use rice or hemp protein if you're not doing dairy)
1 cup plus 1 Tbsp xylosweet (this is xylitol which sounds chemically but is not, click here for more information)
1/2 cup finely shredded coconut
3 Tbsp coconut flour
3 Tbsp brown rice flour
2 1/2 tbsp ground cinnamon
1 3/4 tsp baking powder
2 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup coconut oil
3 large egg whites
1 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 tsp almond extract

Preheat over to 300 degrees. Cover 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

Place all dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix together well.

In a medium bowl whisk together coconut oil, egg whites, and vanilla and almond extracts. Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix together well.

3. Roll out dough to 1/4 inch thick and cut into 2 inch squares. or form into 2 inch patties 1/4 inch thick with your hands. Place on prepared bakind sheets and bake until golden, 20-25 mins.

4. Let cool before storing in an airtight container for up to 4 days or freeze for up to a month.

These will change your life!

  1. humm, I believe this was not her recipe as this was the genius of Dr Ron Rosedale. Many are very surprised that she has not given reference to the person who invented and shared this recipe with her in trust, but rather it seems she is taking all credit like it was her own. Agree about the photo, a professional could have showed them in a manor that would make your mouth water.
