Just like the classic cookies from childhood, these Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies are crispy around the edges and chewy in the centers. They’re naturally gluten free with a dairy free option as well. Made with whole food ingredients and natural sweeteners, these cookies are a healthier treat that taste just like the ones mom used to make!
2 cups almond flour
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup salted butter, melted and cooled slightly, 8 tablespoons see notes
1 egg + 1 egg yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3/4 cup chocolate chips, see notes
Preheat the oven to 350ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium sized mixing bowl, stir together the almond flour, coconut sugar, sea salt, and baking soda. Stir until completely combined.
Add the melted butter, egg and egg yolk, and vanilla. Mix until a cookie dough forms, then stir in the chocolate chips.
Portion out the cookies onto the prepared baking sheet. I use a #30 scoop which is 1.25 oz or 36 grams, (or about 2 tablespoons).
Flatten the cookies to about 1/2″ with your hands. Or grease the bottom of the measuring cup and use the flat side to press down on the cookies.
Bake the cookies until they’re slightly puffed in the centers, but still gooey, and browned on the edges, 8-10 minutes.
Cool the cookies for 5 minutes or so on the baking sheet, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely before you store them.
Repeat the baking process with the remaining cookie dough until all the dough is gone and the cookies are done.
Coconut oil can be used in place of the butter for dairy free, but I recommend increasing the amount of sea salt to 1/2 teaspoon in that case.
You can use as much as 1 cups of chocolate chips depending on how many chips you enjoy in your cookies.
Be careful not to over bake these cookies because they don’t brown as much on the tops. You want to remove them from the oven when they’re browned on the edges but still soft and a touch gooey in the center.
