5-Ingredient Walnut Cookies (Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free)

Jump to recipe


Here’s a delicious and easy-to-make cookie recipe for walnut lovers. It’s also completely gluten-free and dairy-free.

The best part is that it requires only 5 ingredients: walnuts, eggs, flax meal, some baking powder and some sweetener of your choice. The sixth ingredient, cinnamon, is optional but I just love the combination of walnuts and cinnamon.

Check out my 4-ingredient vegan flourless flax cookies too.



  • 1 cup of walnuts
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons of flax meal or ground flaxseed
  • Sweetener of your choice (I used 3 tablespoons of maple syrup)
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • Cinnamon – optional



Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F).

Ground the walnuts.

Whisk the eggs, add the rest of the ingredients and mix everything together.

Shape cookies and decorate them with a walnut.

Bake for about 15 minutes.

Let them cool down and enjoy!

    1. Hi! 🙂 Do you mean the walnuts? One cup is about 120 grams. Let me know if you try the recipe; I hope you like it! 🙂

  1. These look delicious – I love the flavour maple syrup adds to things and walnut is one of my favourites too!

    1. Thank you, Carol! I love using flax flour in muffin, brownie or cakey cookie recipes. The only downside is that I don’t like its aroma, so I always add vanilla, cocoa powder or something to mask it. 🙂
