Almond Meal Cookies

5/5 - (3 votes)

These almond meal cookies are so unbelievably simple I can honestly whip up a batch in under 5 minutes, they are brilliant on their own or with a cup of tea. I have been known to make them in a lunch break when I just fancy that something sweet, however they are also great if you have friends coming over and nothing in your cupboards! The Almond flour gives these biscuits a higher protein content making them more filling and far healthier than your average cookie, it also adds a great flavour and lovely chewy texture.

Top tip: Lots of recipes will suggest that you roll your cookie mixture into balls. However, for this recipe I always roll my cookie mixture into a log and then slice into rounds. I find this takes a lot less time and means you get more evenly sized cookies.


50g almond flour

50g self-rising flour

75g butter

1 egg yolk

75g sugar


  1. Cream together the butter and sugar until soft and pale yellow in colour.
  2. Add the egg yolk and then both flours, fully combine.
  3. Divide into 10 evenly sized pieces (see top tip) before flatten each one slightly and placing on a baking tray. Push 2 flaked almonds into the top of each cookie.
  4. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown, leave to cool.
  5. Enjoy with your favourite hot drink!

In the foreground we can see two cookie, they are the same golden brown but we can see each cookie has two flaked almond on top of it.)
