Almond Flour Cookies

Almond flour is becoming my favorite baking flour. Instead of using regular all purpose flour, I have been using almond flour in a variety of baking / dessert recipes.

Almond flour cookie dough and Almond Flour Mug Cake are two my all time favorite no bake desserts.

And there are a lot more happening and testing in ProfusionCurry Kitchen.  So stay tuned for more.

Baking with Almond flour

Baking with Almond flour is a delight.  However,  since there is no binding agent,  you have to get used to crumbles and coarse texture.

It is best to avoid all white flour ( which is stripped off all whole-grain nutrients) and almond flour provides a great alternative. Read all about it

Pro Tips for Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Baking

  1. I often buy a big bag of almond flour at Costco. That is the best price I have seen. Bob’s Red Mill is also great.
  2. Keep your almond flour in the fridge or frozen to maintain optimum freshness.
  3. If you like soft cookies, add a slice of bread on top of cookies while storing. It keeps them moist and soft. ( change and discard the bread slice after 2 days)
  4. Trader Joe’s and Gefen brand of semi-sweet chocolate chips are vegan. Costco’ s Kirkland brand of semi-sweet chocolate chips are also vegan ( best price ) Other go-to brand is Enjoy Life ( Amazon or Whole Foods )
  5. The cookie dough should be soft and mushy, but not too wet or too dry. You should be able to easily roll it into balls.

So going back to making these super delicious Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies.

I love that these cookies are made in just 1 bowl. No special equipment is necessary. Easy cookies – easy clean up !

Serving Suggestion

Anytime is the best time to enjoy these cookies. From breakfast,  brunch, mid afternoon snack,  dessert to mid night sweet cravings,  we got you covered.

These healthy low carb cookies are perfect for sharing as well. They are perfect for cookie exchange parties, to welcome new neighbors, bring to the office, or to send to teacher appreciation events.

Storing

After they’re done baking, store the cookies in an airtight container on the kitchen counter for up to 5 days or in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. ( if they last that long….)

What makes these cookies so perfect?

  • They are soft and chewy
  • full of clean eating ingredients
  • Only 6 ingredients are needed
  • No one would guess they’re vegan
  • They’re made in 1 bowl
  • No chilling time is required for the dough
  • Much more healthy and wholesome compared to traditional chocolate chip cookies
  • These almond flour cookies are crispier and more buttery cookies, similar to shortbread.

What is the best dough condition

If it feels too wet, add a few tablespoons of flour at a time until it’s just right. If it’s too dry, add a tablespoon or two of almond milk or water.

In case the dough is too wet, the cookies will spread and crumble; if it is too dry the cookies won’t spread enough.

INGREDIENTS

2 cups almond flour
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon sea salt flakes – optional

Ingredients used

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat the oven to 350ºF and line a large cookie baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine the almond flour, melted oil, maple syrup, baking powder, and vanilla extract.

Mix well by hand. Knead it to create a smooth, sticky dough. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Using a tablespoon or cookie scoop, drop a heaping ball onto the baking sheet ( makes about 12 balls )

Use your fingers to gently flatten and shape the dough balls into the round cookie shapes. (These cookies won’t expand or spread a lot with baking so you can keep them 1″ apart)

If you like sea salt flakes, sprinkle some on the top. ( optional but highly recommended)

Put the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake until the cookies are firm to the touch around the edges, about 12 minutes at 350º F. Do not overbake.

Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for at least 10 minutes before attempting to remove them. ( this is super important)

They will firm up more as they cool.

Serve at a room temperature. These cookies can be stored at room temperature for up to 5 days.
