Almond Flour Cookies with perfectly chewy edges, soft centers, and a delicate almond flavor! Made using 1 bowl in 30 minutes! 


Units Scale
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 3/4 cups packed fine blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Pure cane or sanding sugar, for rolling


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, stir together the butter, sugar, egg, vanilla and almond extracts.

Stir in the almond flour, baking soda, and salt until well mixed.

Using a heaping tablespoon, roll the cookies in sugar and then place them on a sheet pan 2 inches apart.

Bake for 11-15 minutes until the edges are golden and tops are cracked. Cool on the sheet pan for 2 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.


Brown sugar: you can replace with coconut sugar, but know that the cookies won't be as soft. 

Almond flour: use blanched almond flour, not almond meal.

Storage: Store in a lidded container or ziplock bag on the counter for 1 week or longer. These cookies will stay super soft!
