Gluten-Free Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies in Jar- Terrific Gift


This is a wonderful gift to surprise someone who is on a gluten-free diet, who’s never had almond flour cookies or for the person who deserves something special in your life. I love to give this away to my girlfriends on their Birthday and I will double the recipe and place it layered and wrapped in a big bow. It is fun and easy to make and brings a smile to anyone’s face.



2-1/2 cups blanched almond flour

½ tsp salt

1.2tsp baking soda

½  cup dark chocolate chips

Add to a glass jar and seal tight


Directions to place on the label tied to the jar with a pretty ribbon:

Preheat 350 degrees

½ cup light agave

½ cup grapeseed

1 tsp. vanilla-optional

Mix all these together

Add the flour mixture from the jar

Mix only until thoroughly mixed

Roll into 1-1/2 inch long “logs”

Wrap in wax or parchment paper

Freeze for 30 minutes

Cut into ¼ inch round pieces

Place on parchment

Bake approx 7-10 minutes

You may turn to make both sides golden

Remove and let cool.

  1. What a very cute idea! I’m always the one making gifts for my girlfriend’s birthdays. I just befriended some wonderful gals who are actually gluten-intolerant. This will be a great gift for them! Thanks for sharing, Tina!

  2. Did Elana Amsterdam use JK gourmet almond flour for this recipe? I’m always looking for a good name brand for almond flour.

  3. These are truly scrumptious…different from cookies, almost like a sweet chocolate chip oatmeal-ly biscuit!
