I had a serious craving for cookies last night, so I took to the internet to search for a recipe. I bought a brand new bag of almond flour the other day, so I Googled “almond flour cookies,” which turned up my friend Evan‘s Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies and, boy, did they look delicious! I didn’t have any chocolate chips on hand (and I was too lazy to run to the grocery store), so I swapped them out for dried cherries and walnuts.

I wasn’t sure what to expect baking cookies with almond flour, but Evan’s recipe assured me they’d turn out well””and they did! Holy deliciousness!

The flavor of these cookies is slightly sweet and sort of buttery with a soft, doughy texture and a little chew and crunch from the dried cherries and walnuts. I’m a big fan of these babies. I’ll definitely make them again!

      1. @Tina: yes i’ve discoverd Ur Blog since two weeks and i follow it every day ! Your blog permits to me to perfect my english and i am a fan of fitness and food too 🙂 i like crossfit, coaching, runing and all “lesmills” class…and i like cooking so your recipies make me exciting to go home and made dinner 🙂

    1. @Corinne: I think they’d come out okay! I’m not totally sure since I’ve only made them once, but it couldn’t hurt to try! Let me know how they turn out if you make them!

  1. Also for anyone who doesn’t want to pay $$$ for a bag of almond flour – just take the measurement amount of flour you need, in raw, whole almonds, and grind in a coffee grinder or food processor, just til a fine texture.

    (Not too long or it’ll turn into raw almond butter)

    You can usually save money doing this! Especially if you already have a big bag of raw almonds on hand!

  2. These look delicious! Have you ever made your own almond flour, or did you buy the prepackaged? I assume Bob’s Red Mill makes almond flour. 🙂

  3. I don’t have any cherries on hand because I’m not a huge fan. Does any one have thoughts on how cranberries would be?

  4. If you ever get another craving, go to skinnytaste.com and search “chocolate chip clouds”…egg whites, chocolate chips.. and the best ever snack for chocolate craving. So easy to make too!

  5. I FINALLY got around to making these! They’re in the oven now and I added mini chocolate chips with the cherries and walnuts! All the ingredients in the recipe are staples in my pantry/fridge, so they were easy to whip up after dinner tonight!

  6. Just wanted to pop in and say how much we love this recipe.
    It’s on the short list at our house, love the texture so much.
    Thanks for sharing!

  7. My favorite cookies are doughy in the center and I love that these cookies are too. I’m also very happy to use dried fruit and almond flour instead of chocolate and white flour because they are definitely healthier. I loved that you included so many pictures and that the recipe looked so easy.

  8. These are AMAZING!!! My new favorite cookie. Next time I am going to double the batch and use almond extract 🙂
