These Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies are the most asked for cookie in our house! Thay are made with NO sugar, NO flour, NO eggs and NO butter. Just the BEST chocolatey goodness with every bite.
How can something with so many healthy swaps taste so darn good? These Chocolate Chip cookies are honestly one of the best cookies I have ever eaten! Really!
My sister-in-law introduced us to them over Christmas a few years ago. Now they are the absolute favorite cookie! How do you judge the best cookie ever? By just how fast they disappear off the plate when it’s placed on the table.
The natural ingredients are what make these cookies healthier. Almond meal flour or oat flour in place of white flour. maple syrup in place of refined sugar and coconut oil in place of butter. Plus we can’t forget the almond butter that makes them the perfect crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside.
Pro tip: If you use coconut oil be sure to just melt it not “heat” it too much. If it does get hot, let it cool a little before mixing other ingredients in.
Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies Ingredients
½ cup of creamy all-natural Almond butter
¾ cup of maple syrup
1 teaspoon of molasses
1 ½ tablespoon of vanilla
¼ cup of Coconut oil or Canola oil
2 Cups of Almond Meal Flour or oat flour (I use Bob’s Red Mill brand)
1 ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
2 teaspoon of baking powder
½ teaspoon of baking soda
½ teaspoon of sea salt
½ cup of chocolate chips (my favorite is Ghirardelli)
How to Make Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper
Mix the almond meal flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl.
Mix the almond butter, coconut oil, vanilla, maple syrup and molasses in a separate bowl.
Gradually add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir to combine. Be careful not to over mix.
Scoop a tablespoon of dough onto the parchment paper.
Bake for 11 – 13 minutes.
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!

Goodness, this recipe looks amazing!! I love this healthier version of our favorite cookies. Thanks for sharing!
True story; my hubby just made some Oat flour this morning! Thanks so much. Could we use Peanut Butter instead of Almond Butter? LauriePOP Ideas That POP
That’s awesome! I wish my hubs would do that! Although I haven’t used peanut butter, I’m sure it would work. It may change the flavor a bit but I bet still yummy 🙂
These are great healthier cookies. I like the touch of molasses. Thanks so much for sharing it with us at the Let’s Get Real Friday Link Party. I hope you’ll bring more of your recipes to the party this week.

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. 🙂
Thank you this looks like a great recipe! Thanks for sharing it on the Thursday Blog Hop!

My daughter is asking me to make the again today! And I just made them Sunday. 🙂
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.
They are really amazing! I just made another batch on Sunday…they were gone by Monday 🙂
