These Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies are easy to make, and are a delicious, crispy treat. This recipe is paleo and gluten-free. 


  • 2 cups almond flour
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ cup coconut oil, warmed
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (look for dairy-free and vegan chocolate chips)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, sugar, baking soda, and sea salt. Stir to combine.
  3. Add the coconut oil, egg, and vanilla and stir to combine. 
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Use your hands to form 24 tablespoon-size balls and lay them on the cookie sheet. Bake for 12 minutes or until the cookies have turned golden brown.
  6. Remove the baking sheet and let the cookies cool for about 5 minutes before serving.


To freeze any leftovers, let the cookies cool completely. Add them to a zip-top bag and freeze them up to 2 months.
