These grain-free chocolate chip cookies are almost to good to be true and by far one of the most delicious healthy cookie recipes I’ve ever made.
Substituting refined flour with nutty almond flour gives these cookies a crumbly texture and a rich, nutty flavour, with a healthy dose of protein, fiber, and heart-healthy fats.
Speaking from experience, it can be quite difficult to find a healthy variation of a traditional cookie recipe, at least one that stays true to the flavour and texture of the original. These grain-free chocolate chip cookies have the same decadent richness and crumbly, chewy texture as traditional chocolate chip cookies.
In addition, they lend well to any restrictive diet since they are egg-free, gluten-free, sugar-free, and dairy-free. They are naturally sweetened with pure maple syrup and have a rich, buttery texture from the extra-virgin coconut oil.
These cookies are so healthy and so wholesome that you could enjoy them as a guilt-free, nutrient-dense breakfast, as a mid-afternoon energy boost, or a post-workout snack.
You can also feel good about giving these decadent treats to the kids, who I’m sure will devour them!
Despite the fact that these cookies do not contain any gluten, they hold together extremely well. Double or triple the recipe and store some in the freezer for a grab n’go treat, that is, unless you or the kids devour all of them before they even make it to the freezer!
