30 Easy No Flour Cookies to Add to Your Cookie Jar

1. Flourless Chocolate Cookies

These flourless chocolate cookies are sensational. 

Crispy on the outside and chewy in the middle, it’s a one-bowl recipe that’ll leave you stunned.

With simple ingredients like cocoa powder, chocolate, and mini chocolate chips, you’re in for a treat – and fast! 

Jam-packed with chocolate flavor, they’re the perfect addition to any gathering.

Peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies are just as soft, chewy, and delicious as they sound.

3. 3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Unlike other peanut butter cookies,  these bad boys don’t need flour or butter. And yes, they’re still incredible!

4. Flourless Brown Sugar Shortbread Cookies

Featuring butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and almond flour, these cookies are lightly sweet, a little spiced, and wonderfully buttery.

They’re also kind of caramelly with a deliciously crumbly texture.

For best results, make and then chill the dough for at least a couple of hours. Better yet, roll and cut the cookies, then chill them until firm.

That’ll keep the cookies from spreading in the oven.

5. Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Blossoms

Peanut butter blossoms are a classic, and this gluten-free recipe is just as good as the one your mom used to make.

They’re made without flour, and they’re effortless to whip up. Plus, the peanut butter flavor is out of this world. 

Top them with a little kiss of chocolate for a fun and festive finish.

Everyone’s eyes light up when they see these cookies at parties. And you can serve them confidently, knowing they’re deliciously gluten-free

6. Easy Flourless Granola Cookies

Fancy a bowl of granola in cookie form? That’s what you’ll get with these!

You’ll combine cashew and almond butters with maple syrup for the right amount of sweet and nutty flavor.

Meanwhile, oats make them super chewy and scrumptious. 

Dunk them in milk, and it’s like having breakfast – only sweeter!

7. Flourless Caramel Chocolate Cookies

Flourless caramel chocolate cookies with sea salt are just as indulgent as they sound.

I mean, does it get any better than salted caramel and chocolate?

You will be thrilled to know how easy these are to make. They’re super fudgy and somehow only require a few ingredients and 30 minutes of your time. 

These are one of the best gluten-free cookies I’ve ever eaten. So I recommend doubling the batch!

8. Chocolate Chip Meringue Cookies

Chocolate chip meringue cookies are like bite-sized clouds.

They’re full of chocolate chips and have a wonderful crispy outer shell. The inside is marshmallow-like, and the flavor is divine. 

Of course, since they’re made without flour, they’re naturally gluten-free. These unique cookies will be a new crowd favorite. 

9. Amaretti Nutty Cookie Bites 

Soft and simple, I know you’ll adore these Amaretti nutty cookies.

But if you’re not a fan of almonds, feel free to use pistachio or hazelnut instead. They’re scrummy either way.

These cookies are terrific for any type of party or holiday. Just don’t count on having any leftovers. 

10. Church Window Cookies

Church window cookies are surprisingly easy and look beautiful on any cookie table.

Oh, and there’s no baking required! 

Between the chocolate, marshmallows, and coconut, these cookies are fun to bake and taste lovely.

You may even remember Grandma making these during the holidays. So get ready for a trip down nostalgia lane.

11. Flourless White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Cookies

If you’re over the usual chocolate chip, try these rich and creamy white chocolate chip and macadamia nut cookies instead. 

This flourless recipe makes crispy, chunky, and chewy cookies that are perfect for any occasion.

I have just two words for you: macadamia butter. Along with white chocolate and rich brown sugar, it makes these cookies truly incredible. 

This will be the recipe you reach for time and time again.

12. 5-Ingredient Chewy Coconut Macaroons

13. Peanut Butter Cornflake Cookies

Crunchy, nutty, sweet, and sticky, you’ll go gaga for these peanut butter and cornflake cookies.

You only need five simple ingredients, including peanut butter, corn syrup, and cornflakes.

Feel free to throw in mini chocolate chips, M&Ms, or chopped Reese’s Pieces. Yum!

Crispy on the outside, super dense, and fudgy inside, these flourless chocolate and pecan cookies are beyond satisfying.

They’re also a breeze to whip up, gluten-free, and dairy-free! 

Go ahead and start with a double batch – you’ll need the extra!

Eskimo Cookies with Powdered Sugar

20. Eskimo Cookies

Full disclosure: these cookies are messy! With all that powdered sugar, there’s no sneaking one of these in the middle of the night.

Luckily, they’re sweet, light, buttery, and well worth all those napkins.

They start off a lot like shortbread (lots of butter and sugar). Then you’ll mix in cocoa powder and oats.

Portion the dough and roll it in powdered sugar, then leave them to chill. Easy peasy.

21. Flourless Monster Cookies

Everyone loves thick, chewy, chocolatey, M&M studded monster cookies, right?

Well, now everyone can indulge since these don’t contain flour!

That said, you will add peanut butter, so they’re not the best for anyone with allergies. But thanks to the oats, they’re incredibly chewy!

22. Ooey Gooey Rocky Road Cookies

Filled with toasted almonds, chewy marshmallows, and sweet chocolate chips, these Rocky Road cookies are a dream come true.

You’ll love the contrasting tastes and textures, though the gooey marshmallows on top are, by far, the best part.

The oven makes them crispy and melty, like it’s been toasted over a fire. Yum!

23. Honey Hazelnut Macaroons

You know about coconut macaroons, but you’ve probably never had these little delights.

Swap the coconut for ground hazelnuts, and you’re in for a real treat. 

Hazelnut macaroons are insanely soft and will practically dissolve on your tongue.

Use honey for natural sweetness, and don’t forget, they’re gluten-free and paleo-friendly!

Girl Scout Cookies season doesn’t come often enough. Luckily, you have this recipe to tide you over. 

These honey and coconut macaroons are a healthy version of the beloved Samoa cookie.

And with only six ingredients, you can experience that coconut-caramel delight any day of the year.  

You’ll love how sweet and buttery these cookies are. Plus, the chocolate makes them even more authentic and tasty. 

Homemade Classic No-Bake Cookies

25. No Bake Cookies

Crunchy, chocolatey, and (better yet!) no-bake, these cookies are ideal for summer.

They start with a blend of cocoa, sugar, milk, and butter. Once that’s melted, smooth, and shiny, you’ll add oats, peanut butter, and vanilla.

Drop that onto a baking tray and leave the cookies to cool. How easy is that?

26. Flourless Dark Chocolate Raspberry Almond Butter Oatmeal Cookies

This one may be a mouthful to say, but you won’t mind getting a mouthful once they come out of the oven.

Especially since they’re (slightly) healthy.

This twist on classic oatmeal cookies is spectacular. They’re delicious and rich with a hint of tart berries. 

The texture and flavor of these little bites of heaven are irresistible. So go ahead and have two!

27. Lemon Almond Coconut Macaroons

If you like classic coconut macaroons, you’ll love this bright, citrusy version too!

The chewy and buttery macaroons that you already know so well just got a zesty makeover.

Tart lemon is just the right addition to pair with sweet coconut.

Plus, this recipe also calls for almond flour which adds a lovely texture and some protein to boot!

28. Lemon Poppy Seed Coconut Macaroons

For another lemon-filled macaroon, try this lemon poppy seed version. 

Two classics combine to make one tasty treat.

I always loved lemon poppy seed muffins for breakfast. And these chewy coconut macaroons are the next best thing.

29. Chocolate Swirl Meringue Cookies

If you’ve never made meringue cookies before, now is your chance. 

You won’t believe how crazy good these chocolate swirl treats are. They’re so light and airy with the most delightfully crisp texture. 

The swirled chocolate and sweet vanilla are pure heaven on earth.

But beware: this recipe only makes about nine cookies. So if you plan on sharing, make extra!

Peanut butter and jelly thumbprint cookies are the type of treat I’d love to find in my lunchbox. 

You’ll make flourless peanut butter cookies, which are nutty, sweet, and scrummy.
