Gluten-Free Vegan Cinnamon Almond Cookies Recipe with Chocolate Chips


cookies

This recipe, inspired by Nicole at A Dash of Compassion, is a game changer. It’s rare that a recipe is so good – and so easy– that it immediately makes it into my regular rotation of foods. This cookie recipe is it!

Simple ingredients come together beautifully in this gluten-free, vegan cookie. The combination of almond flour and almond butter creates a healthy base for this modestly sweet treat, one you can feel great about eating! You can adjust the amount of cinnamon and nutmeg based on your preference for spice and throw in some chocolate chips if you are feeling crazy (I usually vote for chocolate)!

  1. Beautiful photo of the cinnamon cookies. The recipe also looks great. Of course if you had used Ceylon Cinnamon it would have been even better, but we will forgive you.
