If you’re on a grain-free diet, then you are going to love these Cassava Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies. They are a perfect healthy treat that is so easy to make. This cookie recipe is paleo, dairy-free, and gluten-free.

  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 12 1x


Units Scale
  • 1 cup cassava flour (I use and recommend Otto’s Cassava Flour)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the cassava flour, chocolate chips, baking powder, baking soda, and ground cinnamon. Stir to combine.
  3. Next, stir in the egg, maple syrup, and coconut oil. Stir to combine.
  4. Use a spoon and your hands to form the cookie batter into 12 cookies. Make a ball with each one and then flatten it and lay it onto the baking sheet.
  5. Bake the cookies for 15-18 minutes, or until the tops of the cookies have turned a golden brown.
  6. Transfer the cookies to a cooling rack and let them cool for about 10 minutes before serving.


  1. The cookies may be a little crumbly when you first take them out of the oven, but they will firm up as they cool or if you refrigerate them.
  2. Store any leftover cookies in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Enjoy at room temperature or chilled.
