Grain Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

**My Mom shared this recipe with me last year and I’ve made it a few times since. The original recipe was found on IndoxicatedOnLife.com. Check our their post on grain free Christmas cookies here!**

A couple years (and health issues) ago, at the advice of my doctor, I stopped eating grains. Going grain free was a little hard at first because I was a ‘please refill the bread basket’ kinda girl when I went to restaurants. Recipe’s like this make it a little easier to live without (or with very selective) grains.

Even if you’re not avoiding gluten or grains, this recipe is still AWESOME! I’ve actually tried it 2 different ways. Since the recipe calls for honey and coconut oil, I decided to try it with maple syrup and butter instead. In general, my husband prefers the taste of maple syrup instead of honey and butter instead of coconut oil. I was in the mood for a little cookie tasting myself, so I tried a half batch with honey and coconut oil and a half batch with maple syrup and butter. I will be having this bake-off again soon… maybe 2 more times. Isn’t the scientific method to do experiments 3 times? I may not be a scientist, but I do like cookies! 😉

For this recipe you will need:

  • blanched almond flour- I get mine at Costco, but I’ve recently found organic almond flour on SincerelyNuts.com. Waiting until I go through my current stash to try the organic one.
  • baking soda
  • sea salt
  • coconut oil OR grass fed butter (softened)
  • honey OR maple syrup
  • vanilla
  • chocolate chips- I like 85% dark from Pascha that I buy at my local grocery store. Try something a little less dark if you prefer 😉

How to make these tasty cookies:

  • Preheat oven to 350° F
  • Mix all ingredients except chocolate chips using whichever method you have. I use a spoon, but a mixer would work too
maple syrup/butter on the left and honey/coconut oil on the right.
  • stir in chocolate chips
Looks so pretty!! 😛
  • spoon out the dough on parchment paper lined cookie sheets (I used pizza stones). Makes about 2 dozen cookies

  • bake for about 8 to 10 minutes. Watch closely as everyone’s oven bakes differently.
Maple syrup/butter here. Looks perfect!!
uh oh! Honey/coconut oil here. I’m going to have to make these again soon. Maybe I did something wrong?! But I must say, they tasted delicious!!
  • Try your hardest to let them cool a little before eating! These things are addictive! 😛 Grab a glass of raw milk and enjoy! 😉

Store any leftovers in the fridge. I can’t even guesstimate how long they stay good in the refrigerator as they don’t make it very long in our house!
