Soft Oatmeal Almond Cookies

Jump to recipe

I used to think oatmeal cookies were all healthy. They are made with oatmeal after all, right? The truth is that a good oatmeal cookie is packed with sugar, flour and butter just like every other cookie. Until THIS cookie.

This is my dream oatmeal cookie; big, soft, and chewy. I used a combination of rolled oats, almond flour and chopped almonds for a extra crunch. Yes, 100% gluten free! Also, olive oil and maple syrup to replace butter and refine sugar. The result is a delicious cookie with zero guilt.

This is a wet dough, you can dust a little flour if it sticks to your board. I used a small spatula to pick up the cookies and transfer to the cookie sheet since I wanted to keep them gluten free. You can re-shape them with your hands once they are on the cooking sheet.

Once the cookies are done, let them set for a few minutes on the cookie sheet then transfer to a cooling rack to finish cooling.

Store in an air thigh container. Place small pieces of parchment paper between each cookies if you need to stack them.

Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
