Healthy, Gluten-Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have a soft spot for warm chocolate chip cookies so I am always experimenting ways to make them a bit healthier! These are made with almond flour and oats making them refined flour free and they are lower in sugar. I used coconut sugar which has a lower glycemic index in place of refined cane sugar. They definitely hit the spot!



  • 3/4 cup almond flour (can also use oat flour)

  • 3/4 cup quick oats

  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • Pinch of salt

  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1 large egg

  • 4 tablespoons coconut sugar

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil

  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and line a baking pan with parchment paper

  2. Mix together all ingredients in a bowl. Melting the coconut oil makes it easier to stir

  3. Spoon out about 9 small cookies onto the baking sheet

  4. Bake for 8-10 minutes. They should be slightly browned on the edges and gooey in the middle
