Good Old-Fashioned Chocolate Chip Cookies
Okay, for those of you who eat grain-free, gluten-free, and/or dairy-free (or even if you don’t have special dietary needs and just need a good cookie recipe), this recipe is for you.
I’m sure you all miss a good old-fashioned chocolate chip cookie, like the ones from Mrs. Fields, right? Well, I can honestly say these babies right here are the closest I’ve come to recreating the perfect chocolate chip cookie that is completely grain-free and dairy-free (paleo besides the chocolate chips). My dad even said that these were the best cookies I’ve ever made, and he’s the pickiest eater I know!
What Makes These Cookies Even Better
Plus, I don’t think Mrs. Fields can say that her cookies are full of protein and healthy fat like these gems (thanks to you, almond flour and coconut oil), even though they’re just as soft, chewy, sweet, and chocolatey as hers. So don’t wait any longer, go bake yourself up a batch of these classic chocolate chip cookies and remind yourself that healthy food can taste just as delicious as your guilty pleasure 😉
- First, preheat the oven to 350˚ (F) and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Next, in a large mixing bowl, stir together the almond flour, coconut sugar, arrowroot starch, baking soda, and sea salt.
- Then, in a separate bowl, mix together the melted coconut oil, eggs, and vanilla extract.
- Next, add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until everything is well-combined.
- Then, fold in the chocolate chips.
- Scoop the batter by rounded tablespoons onto the parchment-lined baking sheets.
- Then, bake the cookies in the oven for about 12-14 minutes, or until they're golden brown.
- Finally, remove the cookies from the oven, let them cool slightly, and then place them on a cooling rack to finish cooling.
