If you have a bag of almond flour on hand and you’re looking for an easy, tried-and-true cookie recipe, look no further!

This recipe is based on this almond flour chocolate chip cookie recipe (a long-time reader favorite). These cookies are soft and chewy with a yummy oat/almond flavor.

You can add either raisins or chocolate chip (or nothing!) depending on your preference! Next time you need to make gluten-free cookies, make these!

Blanched Almond Flour vs Almond Meal

When it comes to almond flour there are two different types – blanched almond flour and almond meal. Almond meal is simply made from grinding whole almonds into a flour. Alternatively, blanched almond flour is made from almonds that have been briefly boiled to remove the skins before grinding into a flour. 

As you’d guess removing the skins creates a lighter, more even flour. If you can find blanched almond flour I recommend it for my baking recipes. I always buy the big blue bag from Costco!

Tip: Blanched almond flour will create lighter, more even baked goods than almond meal. 

Ingredients You’ll Need

Once you have a bag of almond flour, you don’t need anything special to make these cookies. Just pantry staples like regular cookies!

  • Almond Flour: Preferably blanched almond flour.
  • Brown Sugar: Coconut sugar will also work great. I prefer the flavor and texture of brown sugar rather than white sugar.
  • Butter: You can substitute vegan butter for dairy-free if needed. Use room temperature for this recipe!
  • Coconut Oil: I promise these won’t taste like coconut! It creates a nice texture. 
  • Oats: Use certified gluten-free oats to keep these cookies 100% gluten-free. I like this brand. I like to use rolled oats but quick oats will also work.
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Baking Soda
  • Salt
  • Chocolate Chips or Raisins: Optional but delicious! You can easily make these cookies almond flour oatmeal raisin cookies by adding raisins.

How to Make Almond Flour Cookies 

You just need one bowl and 30 minutes to make these cookies! 

  1. In a large mixing bowl, start by mixing together the butter, coconut oil and sugar until smooth and creamy.
  2. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix to combine. 
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients- almond flour, baking soda and salt and mix until a smooth dough forms. 
  4. Add in the oats and chocolate chips or raisins and stir to combine. 
  5. Use a cookie scoop to portion the dough onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Cool cookies on a wire rack. Enjoy!
  6. For best results, store leftover cookies in an airtight container.

Note: I like to make a double batch and store leftover cookie dough balls in a freezer bag or freezer-safe-container.

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups almond flour
  • 1 cup gluten-free rolled oats

You can refrigerate the dough prior to baking for 30 minutes to prevent the cookies from spreading too much if needed.

  • Brown Sugar: Coconut sugar will also work great.
  • Butter: You can substitute vegan butter for dairy-free if needed.

    Absolutely perfect recipe. Followed it to a tee and they were amazing. The only thing I found is that they don’t spread much so I flattened slightly and that worked well.
    I usually make the straight almond flour choc chip cookies of yours but these are my new favourite the crunch of the oats is amazing! Thank you!!

    I have been baking gluten free cookies for my daughter in law and my granddaughter for 6 years and have found this recipe to be be the most beloved by everyone.. A big hit with everyone!!!

  4. I made these tonight. The cookies remained round so I had to smash in order to cook evenly. I think next time I’ll add more brown sugar. So many of the comments sound like we’re discussing two different recipes. A little confusing. Otherwise, their very good.
