Almond Flour Cookies Ingredients
Almond Flour – Reach for your favorite brand of almond flour for this recipe. This is a healthy almond flour cookies recipe.

How to Make Almond Flour Cookies
Here is a quick walk through on how to make these almond flour cookies. The full directions to making these cookies are in the printable recipe card below.
Step One: Preheat the oven and then prep your prepared baking sheet. I used coconut oil for greasing the pan to prevent the cookies from sticking.
Step Two: In a small bowl add your blanched almond flour and then add in the maple syrup. Mix well until the dough is sticky and wet.
Step Three: Use a tablespoon to scoop out each piece of dough and place it on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Grease your hands and roll each ball of dough to form a smooth ball.
Step Four: Then, oil the bottom of a measuring cup and flatten each cookie. I made my cookies thick, but if you like crispy cookies, you can flatten them thinner.
Step Five: Bake the cookies for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. After the cookies cool a bit, place them on a wire rack to cool completely.
Ways to Flavor and Decorate the Cookies
Here are simple ingredients you can add to the recipe to transform the flavor of the cookies a bit.
Almond flour chocolate chip cookies: Add in some chocolate chips to the dough whether it is milk chocolate, white chocolate, or dark chocolate chips.
Dip Cookies – You can melt up some chocolate and then dip one side of the cookies or even just half of the cookies in melted chocolate. Add on some festive sprinkles to fit your occasion and enjoy. If making for the holiday season add some festive sprinkles.
Powdered Sugar Topping: Sprinkle the cookies with a dusting of powdered sugar for a simple decoration. You can also do this with cocoa powder, for a light chocolate dusted cookie!
Flavor Cookies – Add in a bit of almond extract or even vanilla extract to the dough. This will help to sweeten up the cookies a bit more.
Tips for Success
For a pro tip I recommend using a small cookie scoop. You are going to find that using a cookie scoop allows for all your cookies to bake up the same size. This is important so some don’t overbake or under bake.
You could sprinkle a little sea salt on top of the cookies to elevate the flavor of your cookies a bit. Or you can add a pinch of salt into the cookie dough.
Allow time for the cookies to fully cool. They will have soft centers but the outside of the cookies will be baked a bit more. Allow them to fully cool to create a firmer cookie.
Make sure to mix the dry ingredients and wet ingredients well so you get a proper consistency to the cookies.
Storing Almond Flour Cookies
Store your cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week. The cookies will of course dry out a bit as the days pass. You can also freeze any cookies if you would like. Place in a sealed bag or freezer container for 2-3 months. Then thaw the cookies on the counter at room temperature when you are ready to eat.
Looking to make a larger batch of cookies? If so you can double the recipe. ff all the cookies don’t fit on one single cookie sheet, then batch cook the cookies.
Yes go right ahead and once the cookies have cooled add a little jam. I like to use a sugar free jam, and it will give it a thumbprint cookie flavor. Feel free to decorate or change up the topping of cookie as you would like.
Two things could have happened. For less crispy cookies you want to keep the cookie dough thicker on the baking sheet. Another thing that could have happened is over-baking the cookies. Make sure to not flatten the dough too much and watch the cook time to ensure the cookies reach your desired texture.
