Almond Flour Cookies Without Eggs Recipe

These almond flour cookies without eggs and are a sweet treat for vegetarians and omnivores. (Use dairy-free chocolate chips and they are perfect for vegans, too!) They are lightly sweetened with real sugar and chocolate chips.

This almond flour cookie recipe is made with simple ingredients plus a little bit of sugar to add a touch of sweetness. With no milk, butter, or flour, it would be safe to sneak a bite or two of cookie dough while you are making them.

How To Make Almond Flour Cookies

For this really easy gluten-free cookie recipe, you need the following ingredients:

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ⅓ cup water
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil or other vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup chocolate chips

Before making the cookie dough, preheat your oven to 350° Fahrenheit.

Because these cookies are made without eggs, the dough comes together easily in a regular bowl – no stand mixer needed. You start by combining all of the dry ingredients (almond flour, sugar, and salt) in a mixing bowl.

Add the wet ingredients – water, oil, and vanilla – to the dry ingredients.

adding chocolate chips to cookie dough

Fold in the chocolate chips. Try to make sure that they are well distributed throughout the cookie dough.

Using a cookie scoop or large spoon, place cookie dough on a parchment-lined baking sheet. If you have a Silpat liner, that will work nicely, too.

Flatten the cookie dough mounds with your finger tips. If you moisten your fingers/hands with water, it will help keep the dough from sticking to you.

Bake the cookies for 25 – 30 minutes or until they are firm to the touch and around the edges. Allow them to cool completely on the baking sheet.

Store the cookies in an airtight container. You can also store them in a zip-top freezer bag in the freezer for a month or two.

Substitutions

In place of water, you could use a milk alternative like almond milk. That being said, these cookies turn out great using simply water and in doing so, you not only cut out a common allergen but also save some calories.

Speaking of dairy allergies – if you or someone you know has a dairy allergy, or if someone is a vegan, use dairy-free chocolate chips like Enjoy Life Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips.

I personally like using avocado oil. However, using regular vegetable oil should work well in this recipe, too.
