Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies (Vegan)


These cookies are almost too good to be true.

They’re grain-free, egg-free and naturally sweetened.

They’re properly combined.

They’re vegan.

They also happen to be incredibly easy to make and absolutely delicious–> the kind of cookie that you can whip together the moment a cookie-craving strikes, without suffering from a crazy sugar-crash later! I recommend making a double batch and stashing them in your freezer for “emergencies.” 

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies (Vegan)
makes 2 dozen

adapted from this recipe

Ingredients:

2 cups almond meal, or almond flour
1/4 cup coconut oil, softened (non-vegans can use butter)
3 Tablespoons pure maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350F.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond meal, salt, and baking soda, then add the coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla extract and mix well.

Fold in the chocolate chips, then drop batter by rounded tablespoons onto a baking sheet lined with a Silpat, or parchment paper.

Bake at 350F for 8-9 minutes, until the edges are golden brown.

Allow to cool on the pan for 10 minutes, then serve warm or allow to cool to room temperature. (I actually prefer the taste and texture when served at room temperature, but I’m usually too impatient to wait that long!)

Hope you enjoy them the next time a cookie craving strikes!

Delicious! Everyone approves! I added a little more chip than the 1/2 cup it calls for in the recipe, and it became extra gooey and chocolatey. Highly recommend! Will be my go to recipe from now on!

Leena

These were fabulous! Thank you for sharing!

Hello, if i were to use stevia instead of maple syrup, honey, or brown rice syrup due to an elmination diet., how much would I need to use? I’m eager to try your recipes! Thanks

Elaina Mills

I added almond butter and cocoa powder.Ive made them like five times this month.These are delicious.thank you?❤️?

I’m making these using oat flour and although I’m getting pretty good cookies they are a bit dry. They hold together OK, in fact they are quite sticky before baking, but then a bit dry afterwards. Any ideas about using all the same ingredients but with oat flour please?

    Megan Gilmore

    Yes, it’s a BIG change to swap a flour made with almonds to a flour from grains, like oats. I’d suggest you start with a recipe that already calls for using oat flour, like this one: https://detoxinista.com/2015/02/vegan-gluten-free-chocolate-chip-cookies/

      Thank you Megan. I had spotted the oat flour alternative but I just wanted to avoid the hassle of chia eggs! Ok, I’ll give it a go. I only have a food processor and blender, which would you use for grinding chia seeds?

Coconut oil is high in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants so that why i always choose this oil to make vegan cookie! Your recipe is greater and easier than i thought. Will you give more recipe like this in the future?

Sarah

My family loved these cookies! I was a little nervous while mixing the batter, but I decided to stay true to the recipe and I am so glad I did! They were delicious!

anne

Delicious! I added almond butter and oats…just cause

TiaRia

This was soooo easy as advertised. I used a few extra chocolate chips also, just pressed them in to the ones that looked skimpy. The perfect Friday night indulgence.

Jo

Omg…..thèse are sooooooo good. I don’t really care too much about cookies, but these are WOW!!! It is definitely important to let them “set” on the baking tray, mine looked like they were going to crumble to pieces when I first took them out of the oven, but after 10 mins sitting they were perfect!
Thanks for a great recipe that’s guilt free xoxo

Tammy

Wow, just found your website and tried these….delicious! Great find. I look forward to trying more of your recipes.
