  • 2 cups almond flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup melted coconut oil
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup dairy-free chocolate chips



  1. Preheat the Oven: Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C) and lining a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix them well and set aside.
  3. Combine Wet Ingredients: In a separate large bowl, whisk together the melted coconut oil, pure maple syrup, and unsweetened applesauce until the mixture is smooth and well combined. Add the vanilla extract and whisk again until smooth.
  4. Combine Wet and Dry Mixtures: Gradually add the dry almond flour mixture to the wet mixture, stirring until a soft cookie dough forms. Ensure that all the ingredients are well incorporated.
  5. Add Chocolate Chips: Gently fold in the dairy-free chocolate chips until they are evenly distributed throughout the dough.
  6. Shape the Cookies: Use a spoon or a cookie scoop to drop spoonfuls of the cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches of space between each cookie. You can slightly flatten the dough using the back of the spoon.
  7. Bake: Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 10-12 minutes. Keep an eye on the cookies - they should be lightly golden around the edges.
  8. Cool: Once baked, remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. Enjoy: Once the cookies are completely cool, indulge in these delectable gluten-free vegan chocolate chip cookies made with almond flour.

Feel free to adjust the baking time to achieve your preferred level of cookie crunchiness. These cookies are perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth while also adhering to a gluten-free and vegan lifestyle.
