Almond Flour Oatmeal Cookies are gluten free and made with healthier ingredients. They're filled with rolled oats and dark chocolate chips!
These cookies are ridiculously easy to make! All you have to do is throw all of the ingredients into a mixing bowl and combine. There's no separation of the wet and dry ingredients.
Now, let's talk about the texture! They have the perfect soft and chewy texture. This is not easy to achieve, especially when a cookie is made without butter or white sugar... you're welcome. 😉
Ingredients in this recipe
- almond flour - Use almond flour for this recipe, not almond meal.
- gluten free old fashioned rolled oats - I suggest using old fashioned rolled oats for this recipe, not quick oats or steel cut oats.
- baking soda
- vanilla extract
- coconut sugar - This provides the sweetness in this recipe. I love using coconut sugar when I can because it's unrefined.
- softened coconut oil - Rather than using butter in these cookies, we're using coconut oil.
- dark chocolate chips - I love using Lily's Chocolate Chips because they contain no added sugar!
A complete list of ingredients, amounts and instructions is located on the recipe card below.
Use softened coconut oil for this recipe, not melted coconut oil.
Properly measure the almond flour by spooning it into the measuring cup. Then, level off the top of the cup with a knife. Do not place the measuring cup into the bag and scoop. You could end up with more flour than needed.
Mix all the ingredients together with a rubber spatula. At first you may think you need more liquid. You don't. Just keep mixing until you have cookie dough that resembles the above photo.
It's easy to overbake cookies. Remove them from the oven when they're slightly underdone. They will continue to cook as they cool.
Swap out the chocolate chips for raisins or dried cranberries if you'd like!
I have not tested this recipe using an egg replacement, but a few readers commented that they've tried a flax egg and Bob's Red Mill Egg Replacer. Also, use vegan chocolate chips!
