Cookies have a way of bringing a smile to anyone's face. But, what might put an even bigger smile on your face is these super chewy Almond Flour Cookies. Almond flour cookies are vegan, gluten and sugar-free. Using only seven magical ingredients: almond flour, baking soda, coconut oil, keto maple syrup, almond extract, a pinch of salt, and a whole crunchy almond toasted in the center of the cookie, almond flour cookies are super quick to make and done using only one bowl for less clean up afterward. 

Almonds are incredibly high in vitamin E and contain a perfect balance of fiber, plant-based fats, and protein. In fact, by eating almonds, you consume fewer calories as up to 15% of the calories are not absorbed by the body. So pour yourself a glass or mug of your favorite beverage like the Jamocha Shake, kick back and bite into freshly baked deliciousness. 

What happens if you use almond flour in cookies?

Almond flour is a very versatile ingredient when it comes to baking. Almond flour adds texture and flavor to baked goods. 

Is almond flour healthier than regular flour?

Almond flour can be substituted at a 1:1 ratio with all-purpose flour and provides more nutrients than regular flour. 

Why are my almond flour cookies crumbly?

Although you can substitute wheat flour with almond flour, it may need some extra binders added to a recipe. This is due to the lack of gluten in almond flour. Also, slightly under-baking your cookies will help them moister and less dry as baked goods containing almond flour tend to firm up after cooling. 

How do you make almond flour stick together?

Almond flour will stick together in baked goods, they do require a binder at times, such as psyllium husk or even soaked chia seeds will act as a binder.
