These Almond Flour Butter Cookies are made with just five simple ingredients and are so easy to make! The gluten-free recipe makes one dozen cookies – the perfect addition to your holiday cookie trays!


  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened to room temp
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup Bob’s Red Mill Superfine Almond Flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • optional: chocolate chips and sprinkles for decorating


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat softened butter, brown sugar and vanilla using an electric mixer for one minute.
  3. Add almond flour, baking powder and salt and mix just until a crumbly dough forms.
  4. Press dough firmly into a Tablespoon and place onto a baking tray.
  5. Flatten each cookie using the tines of a fork to make a criss-cross pattern.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees F for 9-10 minutes. Let sit for at least 10 minutes on baking tray before transferring to a cooling rack. These cookies are fragile.
  7. Let cool completely, then drizzle with melted chocolate chips and sprinkles if desired.


How soft your butter is will impact how much your cookies spread out. I’ve found it works best to let the butter come to soft at room temperature on it’s own versus microwaving to soften.
