These lemon almond flour cookies are made with healthy ingredients and are totally guilt free! They remind me a bit of lemon crinkle cookies because of how the tops turned out.
If you need these to be keto lemon cookies, you can try to substitute the maple syrup for keto maple syrup, but I haven’t tried it and can’t guarantee your results.

Almond Flour Lemon Cookies – How To Make
Combine the dry ingredients – the almond flour, tapioca, salt, and baking powder and whisk until well combined.
Add in the lemon juice, lemon zest, avocado oil, and maple syrup and mix until a wet dough is formed.
Use a 1.5 tablespoon cookie scoop to scoop the dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake in a 350℉ oven for 11-13 minutes.
Allow the cookies to cool on the pan before eating.
Almond Flour Lemon Cookies – Tips
I love these gluten free lemon cookies as is, but if you want to add a lemon glaze you can try the glaze from my lemon poppy seed muffin recipe. It’s powdered sugar free and has a great lemon flavor.
The bottoms of these cookies will brown, but they shouldn’t look or taste burnt.
These cookies are super soft but won’t fall apart. If you find they fall apart, they probably needed another minute or two in the oven.
If you use something other than a 1.5 tablespoon cookie scoop, you will need to adjust the bake time accordingly.
Unfortunately, almond flour desserts soften over time due to the high oil content of the almond flour. I recommend eating these cookies the same day they’re baked for best texture.
