Now that we have gathered all the ingredients for our gluten-free almond and chocolate chip cookies, it’s time to start baking! In this section, I’ll walk you through each step of the recipe so you can create delicious, healthy, and indulgent-tasting cookies that everyone will love.

Step 1: Preheat oven and prepare baking sheet

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) degrees. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

Step 2: Combine dry ingredients

In a medium bowl, whisk together 2 cups almond flour, 1/2 cup rolled oats, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, and 1/4 teaspoon salt.

Step 3: Mix wet ingredients

In a large bowl, using an electric mixer or stand mixer, cream together 3/4 cup unsalted butter, coconut oil, or almond butter with 1/4 – 1/2 cup of brown sugar or Splenda sugar substitute. Add in one egg plus an egg yolk and mix thoroughly. Afterward, stir in 1-2 teaspoons of vanilla extract.

Step 4: Add flour mixture

Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients bowl, mixing until well combined. Then add in your chosen amount of chocolate chips.

Step 5: Form cookie dough balls

Using a cookie scoop, form dough balls onto the prepared baking sheet. Ensure the dough balls are spaced around two inches apart from one another. Flatten down each ball slightly with your fingers or with the back of a spoon.

Step 6: Bake the Cookies

Bake for roughly 10-12 minutes until these gluten free almond flour chocolate chip cookies turn light golden brown around the edges.

Step7: Cool time

Cool them down on the sheet for about five minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to let them cool fully.

Enjoy your gluten-free almond and chocolate chip cookies with a glass of milk or just on their own. You can store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to five days or longer if refrigerated. Depending on the size of your cookies, the recipe makes around 18-24 cookies!

Tips for Perfect Results

  • Ensure that all cookie ingredients are at room temperature prior mixing.
  • If you prefer chewier cookies, add extra 1/4 cup of brown sugar to the recipe.
  • Try using an additional egg yolk for even fluffier results.
  • For spreading dough balls out evenly, try using your kitchen scale to measure each one evenly.
  • Keep a close eye while baking since almond flour cookies tend to burn quickly on account of their high fat content.

Looking for alternatives to some ingredients in this gluten-free almond and chocolate chip cookie recipe? Here are some substitutions and variations that you can experiment with in the kitchen.

Firstly, if you want to switch up the sweetener used in the recipe, try replacing Splenda sugar substitute with coconut sugar or raw honey for a more natural option. You could also experiment with light brown sugar or dark brown sugar to bring out a richer flavor profile in your cookies.

Additionally, if you have dietary restrictions or preferences, there are several ingredient swaps you can make. For instance, to make these cookies vegan, simply replace the large egg in the recipe with a flax egg (which is made by mixing together 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed meal with 3 tablespoons of water).

On the other hand, if you’re looking for low carb cookies, swap out the 1/2 cup rolled oats with almond flour or coconut flour. This makes for a great flourless almond cookie option that’s perfect for those following a paleo diet.

Lastly, you could customize the recipe to suit your taste buds by adding in other flavors such as cinnamon, nutmeg, or shredded coconut. Some tasty mix-ins that would go well with this recipe include raisins, chopped almonds or walnuts.

Once your gluten-free almond and choc chip cookies have cooled to room temperature, you can store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to five days. You can also freeze the cookies before or after baking them. If you plan to freeze the dough, scoop out the individual portions onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, then place the sheet in the freezer until the dough is frozen solid. Once that happens, transfer the cookie dough balls into a ziplock bag or another freezer-safe container and keep them frozen for up to three months.

If you prefer to freeze the baked cookies, make sure they are completely cooled before wrapping them tightly in plastic wrap or placing them in an airtight container. To reheat cookies that have been frozen or refrigerated, simply heat them up in the oven or toaster oven at 325°F for about five minutes for a fresh-out-of-the-oven taste.

When it comes to reheating cookie dough, be sure to thaw it first if you’ve frozen it. Once defrosted at room temperature, prepare as indicated in steps four and five of the recipe how-to section above. These gluten-free almond and choc chip cookies are versatile – whether you make-ahead, freeze or store them, you’ll enjoy delicious results every time!

When it comes to baking gluten-free cookies, it’s easy to end up with crumbly or dry results. However, there are some tips and tricks that can help you achieve the perfect texture and mouthfeel for your almond and chocolate chip cookies. Here are some tips to ensure you get perfect results with this recipe:

1) Measure ingredients correctly: Using too little or too much of certain ingredients can affect the texture and taste of your cookies. Make sure you measure all the ingredients accurately as per the recipe instructions.

2) Mix thoroughly: Mixing your cookie dough properly is crucial in getting the desired texture. Be sure to mix well after each ingredient you add until everything is completely incorporated.

3) Use almond flour: Almond flour is one of the vital gluten-free ingredients in this recipe that provides structure and nutrition to the cookies. Unlike regular flour, it gives a slightly nutty flavor and chewy texture to the cookies.

5) Don’t overbake: Overbaking can lead to your cookies being too dry, grainy, or hard. Keep a close eye on them while baking, and remove them from the oven when they are golden brown around the edges but still soft in the middle.

6) Experiment with substitutions: You can personalize this recipe based on your palate. Try substituting different types of sugar like coconut sugar or honey instead of Splenda sugar substitute or swapping out chocolate chips for some chopped nuts like pecans or walnuts.

By following these tips for perfect gluten-free almond and chocolate chip cookies, you’ll achieve a smooth, rich flavor that will have everyone reaching for seconds!
