almond meal chip cookies

by Lori and Michelle on April 13, 2012

IT IS FRIDAY!! whoop whoop

can you tell we are excited??? well we made some progress with our  bakery and getting the uhaul today. so we will be moving all weekend. we will try to check in. plus our dad is coming…he has no idea what he is getting himself into, haha

thanks for the sweet comments on our arms and abs. and sooooo happy we have inspired so many of you to do more planks! seriously one of the easiest things you can do for your whole body. not only are they great for the body, but good for the mind too! it is very challenging to try to stay put. and for those of you that asked how we do plank, check out our video here holding plank for 2 minutes the first time. now that we go longer, sometimes we move all around (up, down, side to side). we will do another video here shortly.

gluten free almond meal cookies

okay, okay now for the easy recipe we have for you today.

we have been meaning to make almond cookies for some time. it has been awhile since we have made almond chip dough ball cookies.

these almond meal chocolate chip cookies are soft, not to sweet, with a nice texture from the almond meal…. oh just so perfect.

almond grain free chip cookies

as much as we love raw cookies, nothing beats a warm cookie right out of the oven, do you agree?

low in sugar almond cookies

we used whole almonds to make these cookies. you can soak them before had, but you will want to dry them out. we just place 1 cup of whole almonds into a food processor and pulse till crumbly. and then scoop out our desired amount of almond flour.

we kind of liked that these cookies were more dry than moist. a nice change. and we loved the texture that using freshly ground almonds provided these cookies.

Oh almond flour is so great for adding moisture to recipes that things just taste divine when made with it! I can’t wait to try these out :)

Good luck with the move! Sweet your dad is coming. I know so many people who are moving right now–what’s in the air?

Delicious sounding recipe–and I love how gracious and accommodating you are of your vegan readers.

I will probably add some coconut flakes to it, hopefully the texture will remain as perfect as it is on the picture!

Thanks for this amazing recipe!! I made these tonight for a party and everyone loved them. I only wish I’d saved a couple at home for myself :) Also wanted to let you know I subbed a flax egg and it worked perfect! I thought they might be a bit crumbly but they held together great.

girls, I’ve made these THREE times in the last 2 weeks… that tells you how much my husband likes them :) I did them with the flax egg, and worked perfectly. The first time I made them, my coconut oil was pretty hard and did NOT want to mix into the batter… so I added a touch of almond milk, and my husband devoured them. He loved the soft texture, because healthy cookies always wind up being pretty chewy… The 2nd time I made them, I melted the coconut oil before adding the rest of the ingredients, and I thought they were perfect but my husband preferred the soft ones. Oh, and the 2nd & 3rd time I made them, I subbed protein powder for part of the coconut flour – I did 1/3 cup each of brown rice protein, coconut flour and almond meal. It was fantastic! My husband thanks you for this recipe ;)

Awesome Heather!!! So happy to hear this!

can you substitute coconut nectar for the coconut sugar?

Reply

Lori and Michelle July 7, 2012 at 10:06 am

you can but it will change the final outcome of the cookie as coconut nectar is a liquid sweetener. you might have to adjust your other liquids so the batter not too runny.

Thank you for this recipe, it rocks! I had a major snack attack last night, and these hit the spot! I used the ground flax seed with water instead of an egg, and I was out of coconut anything, so I used a splash of almond milk and a little less than 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
Absolutely delicious!!! Thanks again!

Love the almond cookies. I made pancakes with:
1/2C almond meal and 1/2C gluten free S/R flour, 2 eggs and 1C milk (soy, almond)
The kids loved them…great way to sneek in some extra protien
