Chewy Flourless Oatmeal Cookies

  • Author: Amanda @ Running with Spoons
  • Total Time: 17 mins
  • Yield: 12 - 14 cookies 1x


  • 1 cup (80 g) quick oats
  • 1 cup (128 g) almond flour
  • 6 Tbsp (72 g) coconut sugar*
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 Tbsp (45 ml) coconut oil, melted**
  • (optional) chocolate chips, melted, for coating.


  1. Preheat your oven to 350ºF (176ºC) and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a non-stick baking mat. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, almond flour, sugar, baking soda, and baking powder. Add the egg and coconut oil, and mix until fully combined.
  3. Using a rounded tablespoon, scoop out the dough and roll it into a ball between your palms. Drop the dough onto your prepared baking sheet and gently flatten it with your fingers. The cookies will spread a little bit, so leave about 2 inches of room between them and don’t flatten them too thin.
  4. Bake for 7 – 9 minutes, until the edges begin to turn golden brown.
  5. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool for 10 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack to cool completely. Store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.
  6. Optional: melt some chocolate chips and use a knife or the back of a spoon to spread some chocolate on one side of the cookies. Place them in the fridge to set before enjoying.


* You can also use brown sugar. ** You can also use melted butter.
