These chocolate chip cookies are made with almond flour and are therefore gluten free. However, they taste so good, I would put them up against any cookie recipe out there, and they'd probably win. The texture is slightly crispy on the outside and moist and chewy in the middle. Nobody that I have baked these for has been able to eat just one.

  • Combine almond flour, brown sugar, pecans, chocolate chips, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Add oil, egg, and vanilla extract; mix with a spoon until a large ball of dough forms.

  • Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Space balls 1 inch apart on the prepared baking sheets.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges are firm and lightly golden, about 11 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Omit the egg for a crunchier texture.

I have made these several times and they are better than choco chip cookies that are not gluten free. I did sub grape seed oil for veg oil as I did not have that. Moist cheMom loves these but hates choco chip. Said she cannot tell but that they Read More

The dough was very dry, so I added 1/2 cup of heavy cream. I rolled the cookies into balls, and they came out as balls. The taste of the cookies is good. A little more moisture and I think these cookies would be a 5! Read More

I just made this recipe for the first time and the cookies are crispy deliciousness. I didn't have grapeseed oil so I used advocado oil. I didn't have chocolate chips so I added pecans, raisins, and candied ginger. It's clear that you can dress up the base cookie dough with anything you want. I highly recommend this recipe even if you are not gluten free. Mix, portion, bake. Super easy and fast. Read More

I used Walnuts chopped very fine because I didn't have any of the other nets. I also had to add a little bit of water to get the mixture to mix correctly. You will probably have to adjust your cooking time slightly if you use what I did, but the recipe comes out fine Read More

Nice soft cookies. I used applesauce instead of the oil and coconut sugar instead of white sugar to make them healthier. Will definitely make them again! Thank you for this recipe! Read More

Simple, quick and easy. Don't need 4 types of flour for this gluten-free recipe (like a lot of GF re pies out there!) - just almond flour. I sprinkled coarse salt ontop of the cookies before baking - amazing. Thanks Billy Brown! Read More
