Almond Cookies, Gluten Free

These cookies are pure heaven, especially right out of the oven! I made them gluten free, but you can certainly swap out the oat flour for all-purpose flour. I wouldn’t omit the almond flour as it gives this cookie a ton of almond flavor, which I just love!

A couple of days later, I took a handful of these cookies and threw them in the food processor along with some melted butter to make a delicious crust for a gluten free cheesecake. I am a smart little cookie.

Ingredients:

  • 1½ cups almond flour
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ lb unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¾ cup organic sugar
  • 1½ tsp almond extract
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup sliced almonds

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine almond and oat flour, baking soda and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk melted butter with eggs. Then whisk in sugar until creamy. Stir in almond and vanilla extract.
  4. Stir wet ingredients in with the flour mixture and mix until combined and dough comes together.
  5. Scoop teaspoonful of dough, roll into balls and place on cookie sheet. Flatten cookies while pressing sliced almonds over top of each cookie. Bake for 12-15 minutes.

Makes 2 dozen cookies.
