Almond Flour Cookies | Almond Cookies

Almond Cookies, delicious and flavorful cookies made from just three main ingredients like almond flour, sugar and coconut oil. It's one of the easiest cookies that i have baked so far yet it's super tasty and you can't stop by one.

Recently, i have been looking for some easy homemade cookie recipes for my little one. That's when i remembered about these almond cookies that i had baked a long time ago. So after a bit of browsing through my drafts, found the recipe which was actually saved from some pinterest board(not exactly know the source of the recipe now) and baked instantly. As expected, it turned out good and to my surprise, my little one also enjoyed it as much as i did. 

These cookies taste similar to coconut cookies without any coconut and are buttery without any butter in the recipe and so flavorful without any flavoring agents. The key ingredient in the recipe is the coconut oil that gives all the flavor and taste.

Right before baking !!

Coconut Oil

As i mentioned earlier, coconut oil is the key ingredient for these cookies. Hence make sure to virgin coconut oil for that great flavor. 

For this recipe, coconut oil should be in liquid state and at the same time shouldn't be hot. So if you're living in the cold places where coconut oil always freezes, then melt the oil in the microwave or on the stove top and let it come to lukewarm temperature before using it.


For 1 cup of almond flour, i have used just 2tbsp of sugar in this recipe which is perfect for us since i have baked these cookies for my kid and I don't want to over-sugar them. But you can add an extra tbsp of sugar if you want really sweet cookies.

Also, i have used powdered sugar in this recipe. But regular sugar/ light brown sugar can also be used .

Cookie Dough

Cookie Dough should be slightly sticky so that it can be shaped easily. If the dough is too sticky, then add a tbsp of almond flour and mix it well again.
Likewise, if the dough is too dry and unable to shape them, then add a tsp of water, mix it well. Yep, it's such a forgiving dough :-)

Cookie Texture

These cookies are slightly crispy on the day of baking. Afterwards, it's slightly chewy like coconut cookies. However, it tastes delicious either way !

Finally, if you're looking for some healthy cookies to bake for your kids/adults, i would highly recommend to try these cookies. 

Now let's check out on how to make delicious almond cookies.
