These cookies are just about as easy as cookies get! They only take a few minutes to throw together and I always have the ingredients for them on hand. They are crispy on the outside and chewy in the center. The oats give them a yummy texture and flavor. You can also make these with peanut butter!

These cookies are great for those nights when you want an easy treat. Eating gluten and dairy-free means that I naturally don’t eat very much processed food. Most processed food is really not worth eating, anyway! If I want something sweet I usually have to make it myself. And recipes like this make that nothing to complain about!

Flourless Oatmeal Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies {Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free}

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt (reduce to 1/2 teaspoon if you almond butter contains any added salt)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup almond butter
  • 2/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the oats, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Stir to combine.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the almond butter, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla until smooth, about 2 minutes.
  4. With the mixer on low, slowly add the oat mixture. Mix until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. The dough will be very sticky!
  5. Scoop 2 tablespoon rounds of dough onto the prepared cookie sheets. Bake each batch for 9-11 minutes. Cool 2 minutes before removing from the cookie sheet. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!

Notes

I use dairy-free chocolate chips from the brand Enjoy Life. Costco also sells a big bag of dairy-free chocolate chips.

    This is the best! It’s so delicious healthy cookies.
    But I have some question, Can I substitute honey for sugar?

  4. Elizabeth says:

    These are yummy!!!! Mine turned out a bit salty…I did use no salt added pb. Should I have done 2/3 C. packed brown sugar?

  5. Clarice Thai says:

    But doesn’t the chocolate chips in the recipe make it a dairy product??? My bf is lactose so I wouldn’t be able to make these :/

    I tried these cookies and they are DELISH!! I try to stay away from too many flours because I’m an O blood type (blood type diet). These were perfect cookies.

    these were awesome I used almond butter with no salt and we used the full teaspoon…they were a bit salty so I would use 1/2 next time! but they were still sooooo yummy!!!!!! i used mini chocolate chips!

  11. Elaine says:

    Can I use the same amount of gluten free oat flour in place of the oats? Looks delicious-going to make them tomorrow! Thanks!
