Gluten and Dairy Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

We love cookies. Finding alternative cookies we can eat that also taste good is a bit more challenging. Luckily, I found this recipe on the back of Bob’s Red Mill Almond flour. With a few alterations, it is the perfect chocolate chip cookie alternative.

Gluten and Dairy Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

We love cookies. Finding alternative cookies we can eat that also taste good is a bit more challenging. Luckily, I found this recipe on the back of Bob's Red Mill Almond flour. With a few alterations, it is the perfect chocolate chip cookie alternative.

Ingredients
  

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil for chewy cookies
  • 1/4 cup Maple Syrup
  • 1 Egg room temperature
  • 2 Egg Whites room temperature
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 3 cups Natural Almond Flour or blanched Almond Meal
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/2 cup Red and Green M&Ms or more!

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Combine almond meal, baking soda and sea salt and set aside.
  • Mix room temperature coconut oil and maple syrup in a mixer until creamy but not fully incorporated. Add room-temperature whole egg, egg whites and vanilla extracts until fully mixed.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients to egg mixture and mix briefly. Add M&Ms and mix until well combined.
  • Place large rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheets, about 1 inch apart.
  • Place in oven.
  • NOTE: After about 3-4 minutes take them out and use the bottom of a glass to flatter. If you try to flatten the cookies before they have started to set, the cookies will just stick to the glass.
  • Bake until set and golden, about 12- 15 minutes.

Notes

Though we made these for the Christmas holiday, you can easily add chocolate chips or regular M&Ms and eat them any time of year.
