Unbelievable Gluten-free Chocolate Chip Cookies

I got this recipe from Elana’s Pantry, a great site for gluten-free/paleo recipes. I modified the recipe a bit and the results were unbelievably tasty!! These cookies are gluten-free, dairy-free, and have no processed sugar (if you get sugar-free chocolate chips). You can substitute the chocolate chips with sliced almonds or dried coconut chips or just put it all in! If you’re going to completely substitute the chocolate I recommend adding a little more date syrup to up the sweetness. I made some without chocolate chips so I only splurge on processed sugar for one day and they’re still really good but could use a little more sweetness 🙂

  • 2 ½ cups blanched almond flour/meal
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup date syrup
  • ½ cup chunky peanut butter
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips (or carob chips or sugar-free chocolate chips)
  1. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl
  2. Stir together wet ingredients in a smaller bowl
  3. Mix wet ingredients into dry
  4. Fold in chocolate chips
  5. Form 1-inch balls and press onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet
  6. Bake at 350° for 9-10 minutes
  7. Cool and serve

Makes 24 cookies
