Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Jump to Recipe Comment

These delicious gluten-free chocolate chip cookies are a quick and easy treat that everyone can enjoy!

These cookies are what we like to refer to as a “healthy treat” at our house. In contrast to your traditional chocolate chip cookie, this recipe calls for no refined sugar, no white flour, and is chocked full of healthy fats. The perfect justification for me to eat like 7 right?! Just kidding…. but am I?

But in all seriousness this recipe is a cinch to make and is great for seasoned gluten-free eaters as well as newbies. Made entirely of almond flour (basically just ground almonds) this recipe yields a more cake-like cookie with a soft tender texture.

I like to use mini chocolate chips to make sure I get chocolate in every bite but they also work great with dark or semi-sweet.


Once you portion out your dough, bake those beauties until they are just barely browning along the edge and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

The cookies should be barely browning around the edges when you take them out of the oven and they will still be slightly underdone. As they cool they will become soft cake-like chocolate chip cookies.
