I love oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and while I usually make these vegan oatmeal cookies, I wanted to try making a gluten-free version with almond flour. I’m not gluten-free, but I like baking with almond flour because it’s an easy way to add more protein, fiber, and healthy fats to my desserts. Plus, I love the texture of these cookies! They’re perfectly soft and chewy.

These cookies aren’t super sweet, but if you want to make them a little sweeter, add an extra sprinkle of brown sugar on top before baking. Or you can add more chocolate chips for more sweetness. If you’re looking for more gluten free dessert ideas, try my chickpea chocolate chip cookies or these gluten free vanilla cupcakes.

Almond Flour Oatmeal Cookies ingredients

Ingredients and Substitutions

  • Almond flour: Almond flour creates the base of the cookie with a nutty richness that helps to create a tender, chewy texture.
  • Quick oats: Quick oats provide a hearty and chewy texture to the cookies. You can substitute with rolled oats, if desired.
  • Granulated sugar: White sugar sweetens the cookies and also aids in browning and providing a crisp edge.
  • Brown sugar: Brown sugar not only sweetens the cookies but also adds moisture and a hint of molasses flavor, contributing to their softness and chewiness.
  • Baking powder: Baking powder is a leavening agent that helps the cookies rise and become light and fluffy.
  • Baking soda: Baking soda also acts as a leavening agent and helps with browning.
  • Salt: A touch of salt enhances the flavor of the cookies and balances the sweetness.
  • Egg: The egg binds the ingredients together and adds moisture and structure to the cookies.
  • Butter: Melted butter provides richness, flavor, and a tender texture to the cookies.
  • Vanilla: Vanilla extract enhances the flavor of the cookies with its sweet and aromatic qualities.
  • Milk: Just a splash of milk helps create the right texture of the dough. You can substitute with almond milk or soy milk.
  • Chocolate Chips: Chocolate chips are a delicious addition, adding sweetness to these cookies. Feel free to get creative with your mix-ins! You could replace the chocolate chips with raisins, chopped nuts, or coconut.
