Gluten-free Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve made a few batches of these now, and someone asked for the recipe, so easiest just to write it up and link as needed. Hat tip to PJ at Nom Nom Treats for the original Paleo cookie recipe that this is based on. 🙂

Gluten-free Chocolate Chip Cookies

2¼ cups almond flour
½ cup coconut flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 eggs
½ cup packed brown sugar OR ½ cup honey/maple syrup/agave nectar (if you’re making the recipe Paleo)
¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons melted butter
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup chocolate chips (ideally dark/bittersweet) – that’s two-thirds, not two or three cups (no symbol for that, apparently)

Preheat oven to 325F/160C.

Mix all dry ingredients except sugar together. Mix all wet ingredients, including sugar, separately. Combine all ingredients.

These cookies will not spread/flatten when they bake, so form them to whatever shape/size you want them to be when they’re done. Space evenly on a greased/parchment-covered/Silpat-covered cookie sheet.

Bake for 10-12 minutes. Recipe makes ~20 cookies.
