Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

almond cookies 2I made some Italian style cookies with almond flour a few weeks ago, and was blown away by how chewy and crisp they were. With the number of people choosing to not eat gluten increasing, I’ve been trying to broaden my experience working  with recipes that avoid wheat. If you are making food for someone with a severe gluten allergy, make sure that everything you use was made in a gluten free facility. Many people not eating gluten are just trying to avoid eating food that contains it as a main ingredient, so I  put my cookies out at work with an ingredient list so that everyone can make their own decision.

What I like about these cookies is that they aren’t a science experiment, as gluten free baking can sometimes be. They are delicious, simple cookies that everyone should be able to enjoy. My co-workers ate them in record time, and the gluten free  folks were stoked that someone thought of them. Plus the several I left at home were gone when I came back, because my boyfriend chose cookies for every meal of the day.

Here is the recipe  I used, from the blog Meaningful Eats.

  1. Can’t wait to try this! My children have several friends with gluten allergies/intolerance and I like to have foods on hand for when they are at the house. It’s tough to have chocolate chip cookies around for the kids and have to say “no” to one of them. I love the ingredient list! I’ve got to say, as my family is not gluten free, many of the ingredients are not something I would keep on hand or spend the money to purchase, so I don’t try many GF recipes. This list is totally doable! Thanks for the great post!

    • I’m glad you like the recipe! I was excited to find it, I also like recipes that use ingredients that I have in my cupboard. These didn’t turn out quite as pretty as some cookies, but they were really awesome! Definitely chill the dough like the recipe mentions, I found that this resulted in more uniform cookies.

  2. I need to get more experience baking GF, I have so many friends that have to or have chosen to go GF, some have celiac. Your cookies sound and look wonderful, It’s funny your boyfriend chose cookies as a meal, I do the same sometimes.
