In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Set aside.
In a separate bowl beat together softened coconut oil and sugar with an electric mixer for few minutes. Mix in the egg, vanilla, and honey. Beat until combined.
Gradually add the dry ingredients into the wet and beat until combined.
Put the plastic wrap over the bowl. Refrigerate dough for 30-60 minutes, until it is completely chilled.*
Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Line several baking sheets with parchment paper.
Roll the dough into small balls (about the size of a walnut), using a scoop or tablespoon. Place the balls on prepared baking sheet, at least 2 inches apart. Bake 8-10 minutes.
Remove cookies from the oven and let cool for a minute or two. Then transfer the cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
*It is essential that the dough be thoroughly chilled before baking. As a measure, I used US cup (240ml). Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.TIP: These cookies tend to get hard after about 24 hours. To soften them, place a slice of bread a cookie jar, tighten the lid and just let it sit overnight. The next morning, the bread will become hard and the cookies will get soft.
