The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever (that just happen to be gluten-free and vegan)

Sure, you can go on the internet and find hundreds of gluten-free vegan recipes for chocolate cookies. I am not saying those are bad, I am just saying these ones are the best. These have the perfect harmony of crispiness and gooeyness and are pack with flavor. Anyone who was in Daraja Club at my high school last year has tasted these cookies at a meeting or two, which is how I know they even get the non-vegan-gluten-free stamp of approval. The recipe is based on the one on the back on the Trader Joe's almond meal, but I have made it so many times that it really has a life of its own now. The dough is also edible :)


1/2 cup softened vegan butter

2 1/2 cups almond flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/3 cup white sugar

1/2 cup maple syrup

1 tsp almond extract

1 cup vegan chocolate chips

2 tsb Bob's Red Mill egg replacement w/ 4 tsb water

1 tablespoon dark chocolate vinegar


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F

  2. In a medium bowl cream vegan butter, sugar, and syrup

  3. Wisk Combine egg replacement in a separate bowl with water and let sit for 5 minutes

  4. Cream egg replacement in with the earlier mixture

  5. Add almond flour while mixing, 1/2 cup at a time

  6. Mix in baking soda, almond extract, and chocolate vinegar

  7. Fold in chocolate chips

  8. Scoop dough in balls onto prepped baking sheet (Silpat or parchment paper works best). This should yield 24 cookies on two sheets

  9. Bake for 14 minutes and enjoy!
