Almond Flour Maple Syrup Cookies (2 Ingredient Almond Cookies)
These almond flour maple syrup cookies are just that - cookies made with just almond flour and maple syrup! They are gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, refined-sugar-free, and are the perfect sweet treat!
Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C).
Add the almond flour and maple syrup into a bowl and mix until they are combined. The dough may seem crumbly at first, but keep mixing (using your hands if necessary) until the dough comes together.
Form the dough into a disc and wrap it in plastic wrap. Place the wrapped dough in the fridge for 20 minutes so that the almond flour and maple syrup can merge together well.
Roll the dough out between two sheets of parchment paper to about 1/4 of an inch thick. Use a pizza slicer or knife to slice the dough into small rectangles. You can also use a cookie cutter, but be mindful that the almond flour dough is a little trickier to work with than normal flour-based dough.
Bake the cookies for 20 minutes, or until the edges are slightly brown. Let the cookies cool completely before serving.
If you are dipping the cookies into chocolate, allow the cookies to cool completely and dip them into some melted chocolate. If you are adding sprinkles, add them in immediately after dipping so that they stick before the chocolate hardens. I usually like to dip just the corners but feel free to dip them as much as you'd like!
Make sure to roll the dough out between two sheets of parchment paper. If you do not roll it between two sheets of parchment paper, the dough will stick to the rolling pin because of the stickiness of the maple syrup and almond flour.
Make sure to check on the cookies at the 15-minute mark. The cook time will vary depending on how thick you roll out the cookies, but almond flour can burn quickly, so be sure to check them frequently.
These cookies are soft and a little chewy, but if you would like a more crunchy cookie, you can roll the dough out a little thinner.
