Gluten-free Chocolate Chip Cookies that ROCK!



These have been a total hit with everyone I’ve shared with. They don’t taste “gluten-free” or “free” anything else. 🙂 They are good for you, and darn good tasting! Enjoy them with a little Coconut Bliss or just on their own.



  • 2 cups almond flour (I ground my own in the Vita-Mix)
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot flour
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp. Himalayan pink salt (or Celtic)
  • 1 tsp. Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 3 oz. semi-sweet, stevia sweetened chocolate chips (I used some I found at Whole Foods)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Whisk together the dry ingredients, then add in the wet ingredients.
  3. Fold in the chocolate.
  4. Line a baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper.
  5. Scoop dough into rounds on the sheet, using a tablespoon or scoop.
  6. Wet hands and flatten each cookie to about 2″ wide, leaving about 3 in. between cookies as they spread when baked.
  7. Bake about 12 minutes, or until edges are nicely golden.
  8. Let cool on baking sheet for a few, then transfer to a wire rack.
  9. Share and enjoy!

      Glad you enjoyed them sweet Gina! My non-gluten free, cookie lovin’ recipe taster (aka my honey) gave these some major thumbs up. 🙂

    what can you use instead of the almond flour? We have a nut allergy. Gina recommended them and I love cookies 🙂

      Hi Antoinette!
      Thanks for stopping by … and for your question. 🙂
      I actually tried a version using coconut flour, which didn’t turn out as crispy “cookie-like”, but still delicious.
      Coconut flour is VERY absorbent, so it might be even better to try grinding shredded coconut to a powder as it has more fat content.
      With coconut flour, you need to use an egg (which I am allergic to, so I didn’t use that).
      Give it a shot and let us know how it goes!

    just wondering – will there be recipes coming as part of the 10 day cleanse?
    I have most of the inclusive items, but then how to combine them into a meal is difficult. I am assuming that eating animal protien every day would not be the ideal.
    Thank you.
