Easy, Wholesome and Yummy!

So excited for you to try these Soft Baked Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies!

I created the recipe because I love having healthier sweet treats (usually no bake treats) at the end of the day and I was craving a chocolate chip cookie the other day, so decided to make some!

These Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies are gluten-free, paleo and vegan, and an irresistible healthier dessert!

They are soft and chewy, have just the right amount of chocolate chips and are  sooooo yummy!

Best part?  They are super quick and easy to make!  You could be enjoying them in just 20 mins!

So let’s make them!

You’ll need just 9 real, whole food ingredients you probably already have in your pantry:

almond flour

coconut flour

baking powder

salt

coconut oil

maple syrup

apple sauce

vanilla extract

dark chocolate chips (or semi-sweet dairy free ones)

I love that they are sweetened with apple sauce and maple syrup, plus the chocolate chips!

And rather than using all purpose flour, I love switching it up sometimes and using almond flour and coconut flour like I do in our Soft Baked Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies or Fudgy Almond Flour Brownies.

They come together really quickly!

All you do is mix together the dry ingredients.

Then add in the wet ingredients and mix together. It will be a thick batter.

Then add in the chocolate chips and you’re ready to bake them!

The thing I love about this recipe is that it makes just 15 cookies, which is a perfect amount!

So first divide the batter into 15 equal pieces, then roll into balls and then gently press down and flatten them with your hands or a measuring cup…. the cookies won’t expand much while they bake.

And bake for just 10 mins until the edges are golden.

And as I made several batches testing them, I can assure you they freeze well too!

Personally, I love have a freezer stash of treats so that they are there when I want one and I eat them straight out of the freezer! Anyone else love cookies straight from the freezer?

No matter how you eat them, I hope you love them as much as I do!

  1. Very easy and yummy recipe to cure the sweet tooth! Love that they don’t call for sugar! Mine had to cook closer to 15 minutes.

  2. Always looking for a new healthy choc chip cookie to try! These look so yum,, will most def be trying these! Question: would it be ok to use avocado or olive oil in place of the coconut oil? And does the coconut oil give it a coconutty taste? (I have a few little skeptics!) Thank you for your awesome recipes!

    1. Great question! They do have a slight coconut taste between the coconut flour and oil. Coconut oil has unique properties because it melts and hardens…. not sure if they cookies will hold they’re form well with avocado or olive oil. Might be better with melted butter or dairy free butter. Let me know if you try them!
