By now, you know my crazy passion and obsession for almond flour anything and these almost like chocolate chip cookies have become my favourite! Well, I still love my shortbread almond cookies. I can’t choose! On these ones, you can either add some chocolate chips, almond slices, or peanuts. I really loved adding some dark chocolate, you know I also have a thing for chocolate.

How Do I Make These Yummy Peanut Butter Almond Flour Cookies

If you like to have children help in the kitchen, this is a great opportunity. This cookie dough comes together in no time.

First things first, grab your granulated sugar, soft butter, and some creamy peanut butter. Whisk well until you get a smooth mixture. Add in the eggs one by one and mix some more. Next, add baking soda and baking powder and also the almond flour. The dough is a little thicker now and you just need to incorporate the oatmeal.

Now, you can place your bowl in the fridge for an hour and relax. A few minutes before taking it out from the fridge, preheat your oven. Also, prepare a baking sheet with some parchment paper or a silicone mat.

Using an ice cream scoop, take some cookie dough and plate it on the baking sheet. Allow some space between the cookies. Now have fun and add some topping. This is an optional step but I don’t skip it as I really love the combo with some dark chocolate chips.

To obtain, soft on the inside and crispy on the edge, these peanut butter almond cookies only require 11 minutes in the oven! Once baked, allow to cool at room temperature on a rack, if you can wait! I love warm cookies when there are breaking in your hand!

Ingredients And Utensils I Used For This Simple Recipe

Almond Flour: I buy this one as I use it a lot and it is the best price.

Oatmeal: This is the gluten-free one I use as I like to control my intake of gluten (some days!)

Silicone Mat: So practical and reduces the waste with parchment paper.

Ice Cream scoop: So practical to get same size cookies.

Almond Flour, Almond Meal, Ground Almonds: Is It All The Same?

Yes! There are all finely grounded almonds. All these ways of calling it are correct. It can be done with blanched almonds which means their skins have been removed before or turned into the flour with the skin on (unblanched).

You can make your own almond flour by pulsing whole almonds into your blender.

Is Almond Flour The Healthiest Flour?

While coconut flour is the healthiest flour, almond flour is right behind it on the list. I, personally, do not consume almond flour to follow any diet but simply because I’m obsessed with its taste. Almost anything made with it (to play it safe!), I’ll eat it. You should know that about me by now :)

It is particularly used for keto, paleo or, gluten free recipes. If you are following a low carb diet, this is the flour with the lowest net carbs.

NOTE: This shortbread cookie recipe is not a keto-friendly option as it is not sugar-free or dairy-free.

Baking FAQ For For Almond Flour Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe

Can I substitute the almond flour for plain flour?

This recipe has been developed with almond flour, I would recommend to stick to it the way it is.

Should I use brown sugar than granulated sugar?

Absolutely, the sweetness will remain the same. I tried it too and it is as delicious. Brown sugar adds more moisture. You can also try with monk fruit sweetener, I have not tested the recipe with it though.

You can try. However, this recipe was developed with smooth natural peanut butter.
