    It’s official..

    These Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies are life changing.

    You know that feeling when you finish dinner and immediately want something good for dessert? When a dark chocolate bar just isn’t going to cut it (aka me every day). Well these cookies are answering your prayers friends.

    They are ready in just 15 minutes and made with just 7 key ingredients, making them super easy and quick to bake. Plus you only dirty one bowl in the kitchen, making this a minimal clean up to bake them.

    These cookies have just the right amount of doughy consistency when you bite into them. Yet the outside as this crunchier texture. They are even very good frozen and dipped in nut milk if you can have will power and freeze some of them. But they also taste amazing warmed up and fresh out of the oven. I may or may not have burnt my fingers taking them off the baking sheet since I have zero patience when it comes to baking cookies.

    If you have a holiday cookie exchange or anything that you need to bake cookies for, THESE are them. They are a guaranteed crowd pleaser. And they are paleo, gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free AND refined sugar-free!

    Ingredients you need to bake these paleo cookies:

    • Almond flour for the main flour. I haven’t tested subs here yet!
    • Coconut flour as the secondary flour. It’s just a little bit, but it is needed to help with the consistency of the cookie.
    • Creamy nut butter and you can use peanut butter, almond, cashew, anything you have on hand! The creamier the better!
    • Maple syrup for the sugar. You can also use honey as well, but coconut sugar isn’t going to work, it’ll be a bit too grainy!
    • Coconut oil in liquid form or you can melt and cool some solid coconut oil.
    • Flax egg or egg to help bind this recipe. Either works
    • Dark chocolate chips because DUH! And you can use the code RACHL for free shipping on these baking gems. They are my favorite.

      1. Love cookies made with almond flour. Added a half cup small diced marzipan. Refrigerated balls of mixture on parchment lined baking sheet overnight to bake next morning. Flattened out 6 cookies with heel of hand and baked them in my new air fryer. Froze rest of balls for future use. Amazing cookies.

    3. I love eating healthy, but everyone in my house is super hard to please when I try to make everyone something healthy. When I made these cookies, they could not BELIEVE these were healthy!! I had to show them what I put it in!! My family loves it now, and I’ve been making very often, and it’s been requested during this COVID-19 quarantine at home… thank you Rachel for always giving us yummy wholesome recipes for our families!!

    4. These are amazing! I’ve been trying to bake a bit more while in quarantine and a friend told me about your recipes. I like to bake healthy recipes but I’m usually a little skeptical because they always taste very healthy but your recipes are so great!!
