Say hello to my latest favorite healthy cookie in the world.

I made this a couple of weeks ago for the first time. Usually I am better about making this in advanced then sharing a few weeks later. But this quarantine has me rushing myself to keep sharing content with you guys.

Especially cookie content as that is the number one type of recipe anyone is craving these days.

I was first going to make my Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies (gluten-free) but wanted to switch things up a bit. I was craving something a bit more chocolatey and rich. Not brownie-rich as I knew the cookie craving was surpassing any other.

When I shared those walnut cookies, they nearly broke my blog (but really – it crashed). And I used those as the inspiration for these based off of your feedback and also that chocolatey craving I had.

I switch things up a bit and use coconut oil instead of butter, which works perfectly. It does make the cookies a bit crispier, but in the best way. They also are ready in just 10 minutes and they don’t require an chill time in the fridge (I rarely have patience for fridge chill time!).

These Double Chocolate Chip Cookies have a crispy crunchy outside and a soft chewy chocolatey center. They are absolutely too die for and made with all gluten-free and dairy-free ingredients.

What ingredients we’ll need to bake these:

  • Solidified coconut oil – you can also use 1 stick of butter (1/2 cup)
  • Pasture-raised egg – or sub flax egg
  • Coconut sugar – I love using this grainier sugar in this recipe. Please don’t sub honey or maple syrup but cane sugar can work too or mix of brown and cane sugar
  • Gluten-free oat flour – or regular oat flour or even spelt flour works.
  • Almond meal or almond flour – both will work will in these.
  • Dark chocolate chips – I always use these (code RACHL for free shipping)

  1. I did the recipe, but the cockies expand … and they did not have the consistency that is showed in the photos. Can you give me any tips.

    1. hi sofia!! was baking powder added in? sometimes it’ll vary based off the oven, the brand of flour and also the consistency of the coconut oil

  2. These cookies turned out great! They looked like the picture and had a wonderful texture. Of course they tasted delicious ?
