Vegan Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies


Are you craving something sweet but don’t want to consume processed sugars and artificial sweeteners? Want a simple yet tasty dessert that is easy to make and won’t leave you feeling guilty? Healthy doesn’t have to mean bland, and these vegan, gluten-free chocolate chip cookies are a prime example of how clean ingredients can be blended for a delicious taste! These little treats are gluten-friendly and dairy-free, and can be enjoyed by most even with food sensitivities, in moderation, of course!


What's In Vegan Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies?


The base of this cookie recipe is almond flour and arrowroot flour. Both flours are great gluten-free alternatives to traditional wheat flour and carry different nutritional boosts and baking benefits. 




Almond flour is made from ground almonds boiled and peeled of their outer skin. It is generally lower in carbs and has a notably sweeter taste. This flour is also better suited for those with type two diabetes due to its potential to decrease bad cholesterol (LDL) and increase good cholesterol (HDL) in the body.


Besides the almond flour, all you need to make these tasty little treats are:

  • Arrowroot starch
  • Himalayan pink salt
  • Baking soda
  • Vanilla extract
  • Pure maple syrup
  • Coconut oil
  • Dairy-free chocolate chunks




What Alternatives Can I Use For Gluten-Free Cookies?


These cookies are highly customizable to your liking or dietary needs/restrictions. Here are some of the ways we like to add a twist to this recipe:


  • Try different flour blends, like coconut, oat, or brown rice flour 
  • Add 1-2 tbsp of dairy-free milk if the dough is too dry
  • Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten-Free Flour Blend
  • Cacao nibs instead of dairy-free chocolate chunks
  • 1/2 cup of coconut sugar in place of maple syrup
  • Try butter-flavored coconut oil for a richer flavor

  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 2 tbsp arrowroot starch
  • 1/4 tsp Himalayan pink salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 coconut oil, melted

How to cook Vegan Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F and prep a baking sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat and set aside.

  3. Combine vanilla, maple syrup, and coconut oil in a small bowl.
  4. Add maple syrup mixture to almond flour mixture and stir well until completely combined. Then fold in chocolate chunks.
