I love a good cookie.  But what I love even more is a cookie that combines the sweet & savory aspects!  Combining a savory almond flour cookie recipe with the sweetness of figs & raw honey makes this paleo cookie recipe a perfect fall treat!

This savory almond flour cookie recipe is a perfect base for many Paleo cookies.  You can add coconut sugar or another natural sweetener to make a sweet Paleo cookie.
