Almond Butter Oatmeal Cookies with Dark Chocolate Chips


Delicious, hearty almond butter and oatmeal cookies with dark chocolate chips! I love how easy and quick these are to make! My new favourite cookie recipe when I want something *slightly* more nutritious. However, my go-to for classic chocolate chip cookies can be found here, double chocolate cookies here, and sugar cookies here!

  1. WOAH THESE ARE INCREDIBLE!! The best cookies I’ve had in a long time – and I bake a lot. Used pb instead since I didnt have almond, delicious!!

    • These are DELICIOUS! I adjusted the recipe slightly so that they were a little bit more healthy but were still tasty 🙂

  2. These are amazing! Made these tonight, the whole family loves them. Used gluten free flour instead and they came out perfectly!

  3. Something went wrong with mines 😞

  4. I made almond butter oatmeal dark chocolate chip cookies yesterday. My kids liked it very much!

  5. These cookies are sooooo good!!! I replaced the coconut oil with vegan butter instead and they came out perfectly.

    These were amazing. I used peanut butter instead of almond butter and it was delicious.

    • Hey liv! These cookies taste great, I have made them a few times now. One question, do you leave the dough in balls when you bake them? Mine do not spread at all. Just wondering how to make them look more like your picture! Thanks xx

      • I do leave them in balls! Quick question – is your nut butter super oily and runny or more thick? I find the runnier it is, the more they spread! I hope that helps!

  10. Amazing!! I did change the recipe a bit. I had peanut butter, so I used that. I wanted to use up the rest of the jar of pb, so I did a half of a cup of pb, and 1/4 margarine. They turned out great.

  11. Is the coconut oil supposed to be melted or room temperature? These turned out very dry for me. I think next time I’ll try margarine instead of coconut oil.

  12. Made these cookies today and they are divine! I love how simple they are to whip together and that you don’t necessarily have to chill the dough. I don’t always have almond butter on hand, but I’m so glad I did because the flavour it adds is just *chef kiss* Can’t wait to make these with other yummy add-ins.
