Almond flour shortbread

4 Comments

Gluten-free, practically sugar-free, and quite tasty!

2-1/2 c blanched almond flour (not almond meal)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
10 Tablespoons melted and cooled butter (I prefer unsalted.)
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
1-2 Tablespoons maple syrup or honey (you can leave this out entirely if you prefer a more savory treat.)
1 c chocolate chunks (I use bittersweet)

Stir dry ingredients together. Add butter, vanilla and syrup if desired. Add chocolate chunks. Form into balls and press onto a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for around 10-12 minutes or until very slightly crisp (these will not rise). Allow to cool before removing from sheet.

Don't see me on the ice? I may be in the classroom or at the theater, or hanging out with my family and friends.

  1. What a great GF cookie, Jo! This is great recipe to have for those who can’t eat gluten or are trying to lower their sugar intake. 🙂

  3. I’m going back to an older post here, but I just wanted to say that almond flour is so handy, I’ve baked with it a lot! This looks like a good and easy recipe, and not too sweet. Where I live, Costco has the big bags of Honeyville Blanched Almond Flour at a good price. Can’t vouch that for other Costco locations, though, I live where natural foods are very popular.

  4. We get our almond flour at Costco too! You’re right that this recipe is not very sweet, but I’ve gotten pretty fond of that cross of savory/sweet. Not sweet enough for my kids, though!
