My other favorite gluten free recipe using almond flour is our sugar free pumpkin cheesecake with an almond flour crust. We all enjoy it and it’s another great option for special diets.

Almond flour is a pretty good substitute for wheat flour in baked goods like cookies and crusts.

These cookies have a really great flavor and texture. They hold together well in the hand and don’t crumble.

ingredients for dairy free gluten free cookies

Ingredients you need:

Blanched almond flour
vegan butter
maple syrup
vanilla extract
almond extract
salt
Jam or Preserves.

Tips and Substitutions:

  • Use a healthy Jam Preserve to fill these thumbprint cookies. This is a good one by Natures Hollow. It’s sugar free, Non GMO, Keto Friendly, Vegan and Gluten Free.
  • Vegan and dairy free cookies require a vegan butter or you can substitute coconut oil. You may want to cut down the coconut oil by 1/3 and use it soft, not melted, for best results.
  • Use your butter or oil at room temperature so set them out ahead.
  • We use maple syrup in this recipe. We love the maple flavor and it’s lower on the glycemic scale than granulated sugar.
  • Other sugar free options include coconut sugar or your favorite sugar substitute. But it will change the flavor and texture of these cookies so be careful here.
  • We chose blanched almond flour. You can certainly use un-blanched Almond flour if that is what you have. But it will impact how the cookies look and might make them a bit denser.
