Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

I found this recipe on the fabulous Pinterest and made it as an alternative to traditional cookies last week. They turned out soft and delicious! Just what we needed for a chocolate chip cookie fix!

I of course changed the recipe up. It is from a gluten free blog that is new to me but it sounded like a great idea, so I just love to trying something new.

1. I only used coconut oil

2. I used coconut sugar instead of the erythritol which is a sugar alcohol since I’m not to concerned about it being low carb.

3. I also added 2 eggs because the batter didn’t look like it would hold together.

Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 2 1/2 C blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 C healthy oil (I used half butter and halfvirgin coconut oil)
  • 1 Tb vanilla extract
  • 1/2 C powdered erythritol
  • 1/2 C dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 chopped walnuts (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, mix together dry ingredients.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together wet ingredients. If you are using butter and/or coconut oil, be sure they are melted into liquid form.
  3. Mix the wet into the dry, combine completely. Fold in chocolate chips and nuts (if using.)
  4. Place in flattened circles on a parchment-lined sheet, using about 1 Tb per cookie.
  5. Bake for about 7 minutes, or until the edges are browned. The original recipe suggests 7-10 min, but they get dark very quickly, so do keep an eye on them.
  6. Remove whole sheet of parchment to a wire rack to cool, or set the entire pan in a safe place to cool. If the cookies are moved before they cool 10-15 minutes, they will crumble and fall apart. They firm up as they cool though. Makes 18 cookies.
