Craving something that’s just remarkably… good? These grain-free easy almond butter cookies are a true delight!

About four score and seven years ago, I posted a recipe for Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies, and it created quite the stir in the sense that you all loved them!

So here we are with an almond butter version that will surely bring joy to your life!

They’re crispy yet chewy, rich and nutty and perfectly sweet.

These incredibly easy and ridiculously tasty flourless almond butter cookies require only four ingredients (at a minimum) and are quite possibly one of the simplest cookie recipes you’ll ever make. Stir, roll, press, and bake is the order of operations here!

Let’s discuss this simple ingredient list.

Grain-Free Almond Butter Cookies made flourless and refined sugar-free - dairy-free, gluten-free and delicious

Ingredients for Flourless Almond Butter Cookies:

Almond Butter: Unsweetened almond butter makes up the bulk of these cookies! No flour needed! When combined with egg and sugar, almond butter holds together quite well into a nice little treat.

I use unsweetened unsalted all natural almond butter, but you can go with your favorite almond butter. Just be sure whatever you use is well-stirred before proceeding.

Egg: A single egg holds this whole show together! I haven’t tested a vegan egg replacer yet.

Coconut Sugar: The sweetener in these cookies, coconut sugar is a lower glycemic less processed sweetener than cane sugar, leaving you with a sweet treat that doesn’t spike blood sugar to the same degree as cane sugar. If you bake using cane sugar, replace the coconut sugar with brown sugar.

Baking Soda & Sea Salt: Used to leaven the cookies, baking soda is crucial here. Without it, the cookies will flatten out and won’t hold together. Sea salt brings out all the delicious flavor.

Optional Adds: pure vanilla extract and/or ground cinnamon. Neither are mandatory, but both will give a little something special to the cookies. Use 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract and ¼ to ½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon.

Now that you know the componentry, let’s bake a batch!

How to Make Almond Butter Cookies:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Add all of the ingredients for the cookies to a mixing bowl and stir well until completely combined.

Ingredients for almond butter cookies in a mixing bowl

Roll dough into balls about 1 to 1.5 inches in diameter and place on the baking sheet. Give plenty of space between the cookies, as they spread a lot! I make mine in two batches

Press balls of almond butter dough with a fork to shape them

Using a fork, gently make two impressions in the dough, flattening out the balls just slightly.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or to desired level of crisp. For chewier cookies, bake 7 to 8 minutes, and for crispier cookies, bake 10 to 11 minutes.

Allow the cookies to cool on the cookie sheet at least 10 minutes before removing them with a spatula. Since these cookies do not contain flour, they need some time to “set up” or else they will fall apart easily. Serve and enjoy!

How to Store Almond Butter Cookies:

Transfer any leftover cookies to a sealed container or zip lock bag and store on the counter for up to 3 days or in the refrigerator. You can also freeze these cookies!
