2 Different Almond Cookie Recipes

Eggless Almond Cookies (640x477)

Today, my youngest child said, “Let’s recipe”. So recipe we did. We made 2 batches of almond cookies so we could taste test them and decide which were our favorites.

After much deliberation, we have agreed to disagree on which were the best. I liked the eggless almond cookies which are sweetened with coconut palm sugar and Andrew’s favorites were the 3 ingredient almond cookies.

Egg Free Almond Cookies


1/2 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup coconut palm sugar ( or brown sugar)
1 teaspoon vanilla or cinnamon
1 cup sifted oat flour (here are directions for making your own oat flour)
1 cup almond meal


1. In a medium bowl, cream together butter, sugar and vanilla.

2. Add oat flour and almond meal to the butter mixture and blend until thoroughly combined.

3. Form the dough into 1 inch balls; place on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 300 degrees for 25 – 30 minutes. Remove to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely before serving. Makes 2 dozen.

3 ingredient cookies  (640x476)

My friend Tami, from Butter My Kitchen, recommends adding 1 cup of chocolate chips to 3 ingredient cookies. I didn’t have any chocolate chips, so I melted 6 oz. of semisweet chocolate and dipped the cookies:

    What a great recipe for the almond butter cookies. I would not have thought of it, so glad you did. I make the peanut butter version often. The chocolate side dip is very cool and sophisticated looking. thanks.

    These looks soooo good! We are huge almond butter fans here in my household. We were excited recently to be able to make our own at the local co-op. It's the little things in life that make us happy. haha I've made a similar recipe to 3 ingredient ones that included chocolate chips. I think I got that idea from a Clean Eating Magazine. They were a huge hit. I love how you've dipped yours in chocolate. I'm going to have to give these a try. Thanks!

    While they both look delicious I am going to have to take your son's side – I love the thinner cookie! Thanks for sharing "recipe" with us at the Hearth and Soul Hop!

    Thanks for the recipes! I tried the second, 3-ingredient version and added 1 tbsp of flour and 1 tbsp of butter and baked them for about 14 minutes but even with these additions I found the cookies to be WAY too sweet. They are a nice cookie though, and dipping them half in chocolate makes a pretty cookie. I used dark-chocolate to try and tone down the sugar flavor.
