Gluten Free Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies with Almonds

I saw this recipe a while ago on Recipe Girl and I've been meaning to try it for the longest time so I did.

These are pretty good cookies. They're different, obviously, from the usual chocolate chip cookie but being gluten-free and vegan, you can't go wrong. They're really chewy and remind me a bit of a macaroon which is strange but good nonetheless.

Riley and I have a week off school so this is just the beginning of a lot of baking!

ALMOND- CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES [vegan and gluten-free]
Adapted from Recipe Girl

1 cup almond flour (we just ground up some whole almonds-nothing special)
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. canola oil
2 Tbsp. agave nectar
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup vegan semisweet chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silpat mats
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together almond flour, baking soda and salt. In a small bowl, whisk together oil, agave and vanilla. Pour wet mixture into dry and stir until blended. Stir in chocolate chips.
3. Drop dough by level teaspoonfuls (literally- a teaspoon!) onto baking sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake 7 to 8 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes before removing to a rack to cool completely.
Yield: 24 little cookies


  1. These look great! We're featuring cookies this week over at the M&T Spotlight and I'd love for you to submit this:

  2. With all these "delish" things you girls make, how come your Dad is not the size of a house?


  3. We hide them from him! Haha, just kidding.

  4. You would have to hide them from me! Our put me in a straight jacket.

  5. OMG I have to make these! They look amazing and anything I can do with almonds is a plus. I love that they are GF, we can all stay away from refinded flours for sure!


  6. These were delicious! Especially warm out the oven. Go GF! :)

  7. These are my all time favorite cookies! I love that they take about 20 minutes from start to finish (including clean up time) and they taste unbelievable! I can not believe that they are this easy and this DELICIOUS!

    1. I actually exaggerated on the time...they take 14 minutes. Flat.

    2. AWESOME! We love them too :)

  8. They are undeniably delicious/easy/good for you! We're so glad you like them :D

    Happy cookie baking and eating,
