Grain Free and Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies


I used to love Toll House® chocolate chip cookies but can no longer eat grains for health reasons. I tried many things and these are surprisingly close to good-old Toll House® cookies, but with no grain and less sugar! These are much better than typical gluten-free cookies as they do not have the sandy texture that so often plagues gluten-free baking. If you have to be grain- or gluten-free, give these a try for an occasional naughty treat that you remember!

40 cookies


  • 1 cup butter, at room temperature

  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar

  • 2 eggs, at room temperature

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  • 3 cups blanched almond flour

  • ¼ cup coconut flour

  • 1 ¼ teaspoons kosher salt

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 2 cups chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Beat butter and brown sugar together in a bowl using an electric mixer or in a food processor until smooth and creamy. Mix eggs and vanilla extract into creamed butter mixture. Add almond flour, coconut flour, salt, and baking soda to creamed butter mixture and stir until dough is well mixed; fold in chocolate chips. Drop dough by the rounded teaspoon onto the prepared baking sheet.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until edges of cookies are browned, 8 to 12 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

If you can't do dairy, change out the butter for the same amount of fat of your choice (palm shortening or what-have-you).

Feel free to mix in chopped walnuts if you like those in your cookies. Another variation would be white chocolate chips, macadamia and Craisins(R), etc.
