Healthier Chocolate Chip Cookies

Healthier Chocolate Chip Cookies

These Healthier Chocolate Chip cookies are honestly one of the best things I have ever eaten!  And since they have no flour they are gluten free as well. 

They are SO moist and yummy scrump-de-licious!! And a glass of cold milk is a must! :-)


1/2 cup of creamy Almond butter (Trader Joe’s is great)

3/4 cup of maple syrup

1 tsp of molasses

1 1/2 TBSP of vanilla

1/4 cup of Coconut oil or Canola oil

2 Cups of Almond Meal Flour OR Oat Flour (I use Red Mill brand)

1 1/2 tsp of cinnamon

2 tsp of baking powder

1/2 tsp of baking soda

1/2 tsp of sea salt

1/2 cup of chocolate chips (my favorite is Ghirardelli)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper

3. Mix the almond meal flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl.

4. Mix the almond butter, coconut oil, vanilla, maple syrup and molasses in a separate bowl.

5. Gradually add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir to combine. Be careful not to over mix.

6. Scoop about 2 TBSP of dough onto the parchment paper and press down to flatten slightly.

7. Bake for 11 – 13 minutes.

8. Let the cool on the cookie sheet for a minute or so and then transfer to a cooling rack……Or put them on a plate and dare yourself NOT to eat them all!

    Great recipe – I will have to try it soon. I have been trying to use whole wheat pastry flour and oat bran in more of my bread and muffin recipes lately. Your cookies look really good.

    I’ve been waiting for someone in one of my party circles to attempt a chocolate chip cookie with almond flour. The few I have seen looked very crumbly and dry. Not these. These look amazing and I have pinned them. I need to buy a new bag of almond flour and try out the oat flour. Looks so YUMmy!

      Crystal they are SO good! My whole family fights over how many each person has gotten. I think I might have to resort to individual baggies. :-)
