5 Scrumptious Almond Flour Dessert Recipes

Almond flour is our most popular gluten-free baking product; it’s a great replacement for wheat flour and is packed with protein and nutrients. Here are 5 of our favorite almond flour dessert recipes that everyone will enjoy.

1) Fig and Almond Cupcakes

The recipe for these yummy cupcakes uses a combination of almond flour and all purpose flour for the base, but for a gluten-free treat, you can substitute all the flour for almond flour. We love how it incorporates a delectable filling made from fresh figs, honey, and a splash of orange juice. After topping the cupcakes with a dollop of cream cheese frosting, you can garnish them with a slice of fresh or dried figs for aesthetic appeal.

2) Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies {Gluten-Free}

These gluten-free chocolate chip cookies are just how a cookie should be – crisp around the edges, and soft and chewy at the center. You can sweeten the cookies with brown sugar or natural coconut palm sugar. If you’re just starting out with gluten-free baking or it’s your first time working with almond flour, we recommend this easy-to-follow recipe. The author uses walnuts in the cookie batter and suggests you use your favorite nuts and mix-ins.

3) Almond Cherry Crumble Squares {Gluten-Free, Vegan}

It’s the season for fresh cherries so why not enjoy them paired with the nutty flavor of almonds in these crumble squares! The recipe uses a homemade jam made from fresh pitted cherries, agave nectar, chia seeds, and almond extract. Chia seeds lend a unique texture to the jam, along with a boost of omega-3 essential fatty acids. The base of the squares is made from a combination of almond flour and other nutty gluten-free ingredients.

4) Almond Flour Apple Pie {Gluten-Free, Vegan}

We love this 100% gluten-free and vegan take on apple pie. The recipe and list of ingredients is simple and straightforward. What caught our attention is that the almond flour pie topping incorporates mashed chickpeas and a couple tablespoons of ground flaxseed. The nutty crust complements the sweet and tangy apple mixture. This delectable apple pie is even more exceptional served alongside a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

5) Snickerdoodle Cookies {Gluten-Free}

If you adore the buttery, cinnamon-sugar goodness of traditional snickerdoodle cookies, then you are sure to love this low-sugar, gluten-free version. These cookies are sweetened with calorie-free stevia powder, which is used in place of the granulated sugar you’ll see in the classic snickerdoodle recipes. The almond flour in these cookies replaces all purpose flour for a gluten-free treat that even people without dietary restrictions will enjoy!
