Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies (Grain-free)

healthy chocolate chip cookies

This is a recipe that I have tested again and again to get it JUST right. The result of my endless tests is a perfectly chewy, a little cakey, classic gooey chocolate chip cookie. Yes, it really is worth baking with 3 types of flour to get this result.

Tapioca flour creates the chewiness and lightens up the flours. Coconut flour holds structure and provides just a touch of cakey-ness. Almond flour offers the best soft texture and a neutral flavor. Together, the three form the best all-purpose flour and that is why you see the combination in so many of my recipes.

  • Total Time20 min

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca starch
  • Dash of sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup creamy nut butter (almond or cashew)
  • 1 Large egg, plus 2 yolk
  • 2/3 cup dairy-free chocolate chips plus more for sprinkling on top (or to taste)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions

1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix flours, salt and baking powder in one medium bowl, making sure to sift any clumps.

2

In another bowl with a hand mixer or stand mixer, mix eggs and sugar, softened coconut oil and nut butter. Slowly combine wet and dry ingredients to form your cookie dough. Stir in chocolate chips.

3

Roll dough into 14 1 tbsp-sized balls. Gently press down and round each. They will spread, so don’t worry about ipressing down flat. Add chocolate chips on top. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until very light golden brown around the edges.

Hi! I am Ali. I live in the mountains of Colorado with my 2 beautiful daughters, Estelle and Colette (their names are the inspiration behind the baking name), and with my husband Nick. I was diagnosed with gluten intolerance and positive for the celiac gene in 2013, and I have been on a mission to find satisfying gluten-free recipes to bake ever since. Baking nutrient dense treats has blossomed into a hobby and ultimately a passion. I believe we should all be able to enjoy desserts in a way that fuels the body and brain. As a recipe developer, I aim to create the BEST tasting gluten-free baked treats, without ever compromising in flavor or texture.
