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!
Can I make these cookies vegan?
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!
How to store Almond Flour Oatmeal Cookies?
Store these cookies in an airtight container on the kitchen counter for 2-3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.

You can use cane sugar.
Also can you make them in an air fryer?
I am unsure as I haven't personally tried! Let us know if you do!
Can I use protein powder with all other ingredients?
It depends on the type of protein powder and the texture. I haven't tried adding protein to this recipe so I can't say.

Super impressed at how well this easy recipe came out. A keeper!
AMAZING! 🙂 - Krista <3
A friend made these for me and they were simply out of this world! I’m not much of a baker, but these were so good I’m willing to attempt it
Yay! That means so much! I promise, all of my recipes are super simple. All of my baked goods only require one bowl. Just throw everything into a bowl and bake. I think you will find the recipes very approachable. If you have a question, always feel free to email or DM me as well. 🙂 - Krista <3
I love baking with almond flour and I can't wait to try this recipe. I bet it would work perfectly in a toaster oven or air fryer as well!
Let me know if you try in the air fryer!
Is there a substitute for coconut sugar?
You can use another type of granulated sugar, but I have only personally tried coconut sugar.
Another great review for one of your recipes!
I love how versatile these recipes are according to the ingredients I have on hand. I only had steel oats so this was a shot in the dark that proved to be worth it! (Maybe a little more crumbly, but not bad.) I made a double batch but used half the sugar. No chocolate chips so I added Craisins! I bulked it up for a good breakfast cookie with some unsweetened shredded coconut and some flax as well as some (only peanuts) peanut butter. A dash of salt is always added to my recipes to bring out the flavor.
Second half of the batch I added cocoa powder, almond extract, and a little bit of the sugar I left out.
And…the results are in…
BOTH COOKIES ARE DELICIOUS!!
The simple flavors meld perfectly together. The combination of crunch and chew is just right. This is a satisfying cookie that offers some yummy nutrition! One cookie filled each granddaughter’s belly. (I look forward to chocolate chips next time!) Off to enjoy…
Amazing!! So glad that you enjoyed. I appreciate your comments so much, SaraAnne! 🙂
Is there a substitute for the coconut oil? I'm out and my granddaughters want to make these today 🙂
Hi Bobbi! I haven't tested any other oil out personally so I cannot provide an answer.
Are the 350 degrees in Fahrenheit or Celsius?
For anyone curious, I substituted the coconut sugar with brown sugar and the coconut oil for veg oil. Turned out great! Probably makes it less healthy lololol
Going to try to sub chocolate chips with blueberry!~
Glad you enjoyed! 🙂
DELICIOUS as are all your recipes!
Flax eggs work great with this recipe!
Instead of coconut oil I used almond butter, added chopped pecans and almonds and baked 25 minutes. Good crunch on the outside and soft in the inside. Yummy with or without the chocolate chips.
Yes I know…this is my second review of this cookie but it was worth a second review!!!
Appreciate it, SaraAnne! 🙂
Whoot whoot!! Love those subs. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
I'm glad you posted this - I was wondering if flax egg would work. I'm making these for my vegan stepson, (I do have vegan chocolate chips).
I haven't personally tried this recipe with flax eggs, but someone commented that they do work well.
Oh my gosh! these are perfect!! I'm vegan (with other food restrictions) and have been struggling to find a simple recipe, and you have one!! thank you! thank you! for sharing this. You have made my day! (I use Bob's Mill egg replacer for the egg.)
This is great! Your comment has made my day! Thank you, Becky. 🙂
I made them and they turned out so flavorfoul and with a interesting mix of softness and fiberness! I used brown sugar instead of coconut sugar and also replaced the coconut oil to butter (because was what i had on hands), and don't regreted at all! But I am also curious to see how it's gonna taste with these ingredients, so I will test later for sure!!
Yay! Glad you enjoyed with the subs. 🙂
I replaced the coconut oil with peanut butter, due to my daughter's request, and they came out great! Thank you for a great recipe!
I just made these and love how easy the recipes is to make and the flavor is awesome (even before the oven, LOL - had to taste). Thank you for sharing!
Haha love that! Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment and review! 🙂
They were delicious! I love that they stayed nice and soft, like every good cookie should 🙂
Love to hear it! 🙂
Cookies look delicious and healthy! Can I use almond powder instead of almond flour? Only if it’s exactly the same..
And.. where do you get coconut sugar? Never knew it existed!
Thanks in advanced
I'm not sure what almond powder is. You can get all of these ingredients from any major grocery store or from Amazon. If you click "Get Ingredients" on the recipe card, you can see where you can purchase all of the ingredients.
SO good. One of my favorites. 💛
Soooo easy and sooo good!
These cookies were easy to make and delicious. I doubled the recipe and made half of them with raisins and half with raisins & chocolate chips. I will definitely make these again. I also love that I can easily make these vegan for my vegan friends. Thanks so much.
Yummy! Love the mix of raisins and chocolate chips! 🙂
Could I use brown swerve?
That should work fine.
These cookies are great!!!! Made them 3 times in the last 2 weeks:):)
Thank you so much:):)
That's amazing! 🙂
Cookies are delicious! Can I sub pure maple syrup for coconut sugar? Should I measure the same amount? Should I add extra dry ingredients if using the maple syrup? Thank you
I don't recommend using a liquid sweetener. It will change the texture of the cookie.
Made these cookies last nite! Sooo yummy my hubby loved them too! Thank you for your wonderful healthy recipes. I used whole wheat flour b/c almond flour ran out. 🥰🥰🥰
Yay! I'm so glad they worked with whole wheat flour too. 🙂
cookies were yummy! I used cane sugar and added a little cinnamon. so easy and they turned out great!
Is your calorie count of 199 for just one cookie? And how many cookies does one batch make? They look delish and healthy too.
Hi Barbara! Correct and the batch makes 10 cookies. Please see that info listed on the recipe card.
I live in high altitude and have to adjust flour, sugar quantities….any advice before I take a stab at this recipe? They look awesome
I have no idea. I've only lived in NY and NJ lol. I'm sure you can find some helpful info online and adjust accordingly!
Easy recipe and so delicious! I'd like to mention that I added a little almond milk to the batter as it seemed a little dry then put the batter in the refrigerator to make the ingredients congeal and easy to scoop. This recipe is a winner!
So glad you enjoyed!
Offered them as a gift and it was a success.
Made these this morning. Look exactly like yours. Very easy, plus delicious! My husband loved them too. I got three more out of the recipe than you did.
Will definite Make again.
Wow, my family and simply love these. God bless!
