  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 8 cookies 1x


  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 3/4 cup potato starch
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup vegan butter (Earth Balance)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons rainbow jimmies (link to grain-free brand mentioned in post above).
  • 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar (Wholesome! brand is grain-free)
  • 1/3 cup room temperature vegan butter (Earth Balance)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract (clear for lighter color)
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons almond milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Whisk together almond flour, potato starch, sugar and salt.
  3. Add melted butter, egg, vanilla and combine until dough has formed. Dough will be a bit sticky. Add in rainbow jimmies and work through the dough evenly.
  4. Roll out dough in between two pieces of parchment paper. (This will keep the dough from sticking to the rolling pin). Cut cookies out of dough. Carefully peel and lift them by hand or spatula dusted in potato starch and transfer onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. Cookies will still be a bit soft. Remove from oven and allow cookies to cool on the cookie sheet for 10 full minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack or plate.
  6. While your cookies are cooling, mix together your frosting. With a hand mixer, cream vegan butter. Slowly add in sifted powdered sugar and salt. Finally, add in vanilla extract and almond milk. Blend until smooth. (Add a touch of almond milk if icing is too thick or a bit more powdered sugar if you prefer it thicker.
  7. Pipe or spread frosting onto cookies, top with sprinkles, serve and enjoy! Any leftovers can be stored in an airtight container to keep cookies soft and fresh.
