4 Ingredient Almond Butter Oatmeal Cookies


Healthy gluten free and vegan four ingredient almond butter oatmeal cookies that start to finish take less than 20 minutes to make! 


  • 1 cup of gluten free quick cooking rolled oats
  • ½ cup of vegan/allergy friend chocolate chips + more for topping if desire
  • ½ cup of coconut sugar
  • 1 cup of almond butter, runny
  • 2 tablespoons of water



  1. Pre heat oven to 350°F and prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a food processor or high powered blender, pulse your gluten free oats into a course meal texture. The oats should not be processes into a fine flour. 
  3. Add almond butter, water and coconut sugar to the food processor and pulse until combined and coming away from the sides. If the dough seems super dry add more water 1 tablespoon at a time. The dough should be crumbly but you should be able to press it together and it holds/sticks to each other.
  4. Remove the dough and place in a medium mixing bowl. Add your chocolate chips and use your hands to incorporate or a large spoon. Feel free to use more than a 1/2 cup of chocolate chips!
  5. Scoop large rounded tablespoonfuls of the dough onto the prepared cookie sheet. Flatten slightly with your hand to it is in cookie shape. These cookies will not change shape when baking. If desired press an indentation in the center deep enough to add two chocolate chips for each cookie. Repeat with remaining dough and bake for 7 minutes. 
  6. Do not overbake these cookies. They will not change shape or appearance much in the oven. The chocolate will become melty. You are just heating these up to make them stick together like a cookie! Remove after 7 minutes and if desired smooth the chocolate on the top with the back of a spoon so it looks like a pool of chocolate.
  7. Let cool before eating so they hold together! Enjoy and be happy!


  • The dough is supposed to be somewhat crumbly! You will know that you have it the right texture when most of it holds together but a few crumbs fall out when you scoop them onto the tray. You will need to push them back together and they will hold shape.
