Paleo Star Wars Cookies

Normally I bake with butter, flour and sugar – A LOT of it, but when friends with special requests come around I can’t say no, especially when it has to do with Star Wars baking! I’ve created Vegan Star Wars cookies before and this time I made Paleo Star Wars cookies!

My friend Michelle of Nom Nom Paleo just released her fabulous new cookbook Nom Nom Paleo based on her amazing food blog. We went to Food Blog Forum at Walt Disney World last year and her two boys, like my two boys, love Star Wars. When she came to LA on her book tour and I knew I had to create Paleo Star Wars cookies just for her. These are made with coconut flour and coconut oil, rolled out and cut with the help of Williams-Sonoma Star Wars cookie cutters. A nice, sweet addition to a Galactic Empire Paleo diet.

Paleo Star Wars Cookies


1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup honey
1 cup coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3 eggs
3 Tablespoons coconut milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice


In the bowl of an electric mixer stir together the coconut oil and honey.

Add the coconut flour and cinnamon, eggs, coconut milk, vanilla and lemon juice.

Mix on medium high until combined and the mixture starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 10 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prep baking sheets with silpats.

Roll out the cookie dough to approx 3/8″ and use the cutters to cut out the cookies.

Place them on the prepped sheets and bake for 8-10 minutes depending on your oven, until slightly browned. Let cool on a wire rack.

  1. Tara Q. says:

    Thank you for making these! I’m also quite impressed you figured out how to do them with only coconut flour and no almond! Yay!

  2. Kelly Schmidt says:

    Should the coconut oil be room temperature like butter or melted or does it even matter?

  3. Tina says:

    Followed the instructions to the T, but it was still powdery not dough like. Any recomendations? Seems like there wasnt enough liquid to bind it.

  4. Mithe says:

    Similar to Tina, I could not get this dough to stick together as the cookies just crumble apart as soon as you lift them. I am not sure if it needs more liquid, or if I finally have to invest in an electrical mixer.

    Any suggestions on how to incorporate the crumbs into something else?

    @Tina Hm, I didn’t have that problem but you can add a little bit more coconut milk as needed, I just wouldn’t overdo it!

  6. Tanya says:

    I could not get these to work either. It was just a crumbly mess. I even added a bit more milk to try and get the dough to stick together. No luck. I wonder if there is an ingredient missing? It just seems too dry.

  7. Christy says:

    Couldn’t get these to come together in a dough either. Is it really supposed to be 1.5 cups coconut flour? I added almost 1/4 cup extra of coconut milk, still a crumbly mess. I drizzled in more coconut oil, still a crumbly mess. I used a hand mixer. Not sure what else I could do.
