The Best Healthy Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cookies made with all paleo, vegan and gluten-free ingredients and ready in just 15 minutes! No chilling the dough and made with just 7 ingredients.

  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 15 mins
  • Total Time: 20 mins

Yield: 14-16 cookies 1x


  • 1 cup creamy almond butter (you can use any nut butter but almond adds a nice neutral flavor – code RACHL for free shipping on my favorite)
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 flax egg
  • 1/3 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup + 2 tablespoons tapioca flour or arrowroot flour (another flour wouldn’t work!)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips or chunks (code RACHL for free shipping)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the almond butter, coconut sugar, flax egg, milk and vanilla extract until creamy
  3. Mix in the flour, sea salt and baking powder until dough is well combined
  4. Fold in dark chocolate chips then scoop a spoonful of dough onto baking sheet and flatten a bit (leave about 2 inches between each cookie – these spread!)
  5. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until crispy to your liking then allow cookies to cool for a few minutes and enjoy!


*For the best “crunch” keep these in the fridge for 5 days or freezer for 2 months
