    Honey Sweetened Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies (Grain/Dairy/Egg/Refined sugar Free) Recipe

    Honey Sweetened Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies (Grain/Dairy/Egg/Refined sugar Free)

  • Recipe Description:

    I wanted to make cookies for my family one night as a special treat, but as I looked at my pantry and my refrigerator it became apparent that I was out of many ingredients. I decided to try and whip something up anyway with things I had on hand and they came out great! The taste was delicious. The texture is crunchy, rather than chewy, but for no eggs or butter I was happy. I will remember these particular almond flour cookies to make for some friends who have dairy, egg, gluten allergies and those eating only honey sweetened desserts. Fast and delicious!

    Recipe Instructions:

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

    Mix together dry ingredients with a fork. Add remaining ingredients except chocolate chips* and combine thoroughly. Let the dough rest for five minutes.

    Fold in chocolate chunks or chips. (I just chop up my favorite dark chocolate candy bar).

    Roll into small balls and place on the parchment paper. Use the bottom of a glass to gently press down the cookies. If the glass is sticking too much, wet it with water on the bottom.

    Bake for 8-9 minutes. Cookies will not brown much. Slide parchment onto wire racks to cool. Allow to cool on a wire rack before removing from parchment.

    *Feel free to sub carob chips if you don't eat chocolate.

    You have honey listed twice. Is it just 1/4 cup or 1/4 cup of clover mixed with 1/4 regular? Reply
    • Sorry about that. Fixed the typo. It's just 1/4 cup of honey (whatever you have, but mild clover is best) and then 1/4 cup coconut oil. Reply

    These are delicious! I can no longer eat gluten, soy, chicken eggs, or casein due to food sensitivities, but these were so close to the real deal that I didn't even notice the things missing from the old recipe. Thank you so much for giving me a treat I can enjoy without guilt. I did use coconut nectar instead of honey since I didn't have the honey. Turned out perfect. Reply

    Can you make blanched almond flour by grinding blanched almonds in a (non-coffee dedicated) coffee grinder? Reply

    Just a note that according to the GAPS diet book neither chocolate not cocoa are allowed which would suggest this recipe should Not be in the section for gaps dieters. Reply
