Almond flour, shredded coconut, chocolate, and oats make up the base for these Almond Joy Oatmeal Cookies. A soft and chewy gluten-free cookie that’s loaded with texture!

I’m going to start this post with a confession that you have to promise you won’t judge me for. Ready? Okay…

I’m not a huge fan of chocolate chip cookies. That’s not to say that I don’t enjoy them, but they’re not my favourite as far as cookies go — that title belongs to chocolate chip oatmeal cookies.

Remember how I went on and on about being huge on textures in my granola post? The same thing applies to cookies. I prefer denser, chewier, heartier cookies to the smooth and buttery kind that melt in your mouth… which is why tossing in some oats is a must.
