Gluten-Free Cashew Flour Cookies


These cookies are light and sort of melt in your mouth. They are similar to the Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies.

I’ve also published GF flour mix variations that can be used within the below.



1 c GF flour mix

1/2 c cashew nut flour

1 c ground/chopped cashews

1 c chopped pecans

½ c GF chocolate chips

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp baking powder

1/8 tsp nutmeg

½ tsp cinnamon

2/3 sticks of butter



1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Mix all dry ingredients excluding chopped nuts and chocolate chips.

3. Add butter and mix.

4. Add nuts and chocolate chips.

5. On a non-greased baking ban, bake 6-7 minutes. Remove and cool at least 5 minutes.

  1. Oh my I can’t wait to try these! I absolutely love those Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies which you mention in your introduction. I haven’t really used cashew flour very much, and I look forward to getting experience with using this type of flour.

  2. I had the wonderful opportunity to try this recipe over the weekend when my daughter had a sleepover for her birthday. The girls all helped me bake them and boy were they extremely pleased with how they turned out! Every single one of them declared that they were in fact better than regular chocolate chip cookies and they asked for the recipe so they could make them themselves at home. In other words, it was a smashing success.

  3. Wow, these turned out really well! @Susan I didn’t add any sugar (except what was in the chocolate chips) and they tasted sweet probably just from the cashew flour I’m guessing, which has a natural sweetness to it.

  4. I made a giant cookie cake using this recipe and it was delicious! My daughter always wanted those big chocolate chip cookie cakes you see at the mall at a particular store…I can’t remember the name of the store.

  5. I’m very interested in cashew flour and I’ve found in a couple recipes so far that it’s a great substitute gf flour and I’ve used it in a couple of almond flour recipes. I don’t know if you can substitute it for almond flour though as a rule. I will see. I have Elana Ambsterdam’s almond flour cookbook and I’m curious to see if any of her recipes will be good with cashew flour instead. The almond flour is already fantastic so it’s more of just a curiosity thing.

  6. I tried these and they turned out great except I accidentally left them in a little too long so they were a little burned. But even so they were still pretty good! Can’t wait to try them again and not burn them this time LOL!

  7. Wow looks delicious! Does anyone have a gluten free cashew flour they would like to recommend? I haven’t used it ever before.

  8. I think I do like these better than the almond flour cookies and certainly better than your run-of-the-mill gluten-free alternative to chocolate chip cookies!
