Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies
The best gluten-free chocolate chip cookies! They have a soft, chewy inside, golden edges, and chocolatey goodness with every bite. Watch how I make them on the video above!
Servings: 18 cookies
- ½ cup melted (and cooled) butter, ghee, or coconut oil
- ½ cup coconut sugar
- 1 large egg
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 cups almond flour
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 400F/200C, and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, whisk together the melted butter, coconut sugar, egg, and vanilla extract, until smooth.
Add the almond flour, salt, and baking soda to the bowl, then stir to combine. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Using a medium cookie scoop (1 ½ tablespoons) dollop 18 cookies on the baking sheet. Use your fingers to flatten the dough into cookie shape, as the cookies will not flatten much on their own while baking.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the cookies are slightly golden on the edges.
- If you'd like extra large cookies, you could make 12 cookies (about 2 tablespoons each) on a single baking sheet. If you do that, increase the cook time by 1-2 minutes. Just be forewarned that they may slightly touch each other when baking.
