  • 4.9 oz egg whites approximately 5 egg whites
  • 11.2 oz granulated sugar
  • 7 oz almond flour
  • 1 tsp lemon juice


  • Preheat the oven to 300 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon mat. 
  • In a sauce pan, stir the almond flour and sugar then add egg whites and mix well. 
  • Place the sauce pan over medium heat and cook the batter until sugar is melted and the batter is runny enough to fall off the spoon. 
  • Turn the heat off and let the batter come to room temperature. 
  • Put the batter in a piping bag and pipe on the baking sheet the size of walnuts. Leave a couple of inches between cookies. 
  • Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until fully cooked. 
  • Let cool for 10 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack. 


  • Make sure not to overcook the batter. Once ready, the batter has the consistency denser than pudding but still runny. It should fall off the spoon easily. 
  • You can use homemade or store bought almond flour. Read the instructions on how to make homemade almond flour on Foolproof Living. 
  • Some put a blanched almond on top of each almond cookie before baking. 
  • These almond flour cookies are very simple to make. The trick is to not cook the batter too long otherwise it'll get hard. 
  • These cookies will spread while cooking so make sure to leave an inch or two between each cookie before baking.
