Gluten-Free Almond Cookies

Recipe by It’s Not Complicated Recipes

These are so good. Chewy inside and slightly crunchy outside…mmm. The best part is that they are gluten-free. It’s a really simple and easy to make recipe, only using 5 ingredients. The almond flavour is slightly overpowering for me personally but they are still delicious.


  • 3 cups (300g) almond meal or flour
  • 1 cup (220g) caster sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond essence
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 cup flaked almonds
  • Icing sugar to dust, optional


Preheat oven to 180°C. Place non-stick baking paper onto baking trays.

Place almond flakes into a bowl or onto a plate. Combine almond meal, sugar and essence in a large bowl. Add the lightly beaten egg whites and stir until the mixture forms a firm paste.

Roll small balls of the mixture, about 3 cm in diameter in the flaked almonds. Place the balls onto baking paper-lined oven trays and gently flatten them a little.

Bake for about 12-15 minutes or until the biscuits are lightly browned. Cool on racks. They cookies can be stored in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
