These almond flour cookies with chocolate chips are absolutely delicious, crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside! They also happen to be gluten-free, low carb and vegan.

I originally made these almond flour cookies for a CrossFit party.

It was one of my first times baking with almond flour and for some reason, I expected the almond flour to make the cookies dry, but they are super moist and delicious.

Before we get to the recipe, let’s dive into some almond flour FAQs…

Baking With Almond Flour

Almond flour is amazing for baking and super nutrient-rich, which is why I use it in a ton of my recipes! One thing to note is that you can’t simply swap almond flour for all-purpose flour at a 1:1 ratio. Almond flour is essentially just ground almond, which has totally different consistency (and fat/protein level) than traditional flour.

Thankfully, baking with almond flour is really common now so there are a million recipes using almond flour to take out the guess work for you.

Almond Flour vs. Almond Meal

Just a little reminder that almond flour and almond meal because they aren’t the same! Almond flour is made from blanched almonds that are finely ground. And it is typically the preferred ingredient in baked goods for the lighter texture. Almond meal is whole almonds that are less finely ground so the meal is coarser and has a darker color. Almond meal works well in heartier recipes or recipes where the texture of flour doesn’t matter as much, like my almond flour crackers.

Where to Buy Almond Flour

I usually keep my pantry stocked with Bob’s Red Mill almond flour from Thrive Market. If you’re not a Thrive Market member, you can find almond flour at most major grocery stores now, which is amazing! I’ve seen it at Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods and even my local Kroger. It is usually in the baking aisle by the other flours, but may be in the natural/specialty item section as well. It just depends on the store.

You only need seven simple ingredients for these tasty cookies:

  • blanched almond flour – like I mentioned above, make sure you grab almond flour and not almond meal! Almond flour is more finely ground and works best for these cookies.
  • baking soda – this just helps these cookies rise.
  • sea salt – a touch of salt really helps the other flavors in this recipe pop!
  • coconut oil – this adds healthy fat and helps bind the cookies together.
  • pure maple syrup or honey – gotta have a little bit of sweetness in a cookie! I stuck to these natural sweeteners.
  • vanilla extract – a underlying flavor to these delicious cookies.
  • dark chocolate or dark chocolate chips – I really like Lily’s chocolate chips because they’re dairy-free and lower in sugar.

How to Make Cookies with Almond Flour

Making these cookies with almond flour couldn’t be easier because you just mix your dry ingredients, mix the wet ingredients and combine them! Add your chocolate, scoop the dough and bake!

I like using about a tablespoon of dough for each cookie so a small cookie scoop is perfect! And for baking I place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Both work great to prevent the cookies from sticking. No need to grease them!

Then you’ll simply bake the cookies at 350ºF for 17-20 minutes or until cookies are golden around the edges. Cool on the baking sheet for 15 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely and enjoy!

How to Store Almond Flour Cookies

After allowing these cookies to cool completely, store in an airtight container on your countertop for up to 3 days. For longer storage, you can store in the refrigerator for up to 7 days or in the freezer for up to a month.

  1. I am still so curious to try out a Paleo recipe. I still have your berry crisp book marked to make soon! Hope all is well girl!

  2. YUM! These look amazing – can’t wait to try a bite tonight!

    I love grain-free/paleo recipes since I try to stay away from most grains. Baking can definitely get tricky though – I learn something new every time I whip up a paleo recipe.

  3. Haha I haven’t really looked into much paleo stuff (I read Matt @ No Meat Athlete’s thoughts on the overall diet, coming from a vegetarian perspective) and I decided it wasn’t for me 🙂 That said, I do think there are some great healthy recipes!! This one sounds good!!

    I wish you could come to the meet up tomorrow! We will miss you!

  4. Yum! These look great!

    Chocolate chip cookies are one of my favorite baked goods to “paleo-i-fy!” I’ve tried a bunch of different recipes, and even made some up myself. My latest was a coconut flour chocolate chip cookie sweetened with dates (instead of maple syrup or honey). They were pretty darn good! I have a ton of Paleo baked good recipes over on Frisky lemon if you’re interested…;)

    1. I actually saw your recipe and was going to try it but didn’t have coconut flour on hand. Next time… 🙂

  5. I’ve been seeing so many recipes with almond flour now…I can’t sue it because of people in my family being allergic to nuts lol but these look really good!

  6. Those sound really good! I haven’t tried to make anything paleo, but I did pick up almond flour a few weeks ago so I’m definitely curious to try.

    1. I had the same bag of almond flour sitting in my pantry for months. I was happy to find this recipe so I could put it to good use.

  7. The cookies look great, I love experimenting with almond and other non-grain flours!

  8. LOVEEEE paleo cookies 😉 all ova my instagram. I’m so glad we’re both loving CrossFit. Potlucks with people from your Box are the literal best.

  9. I tried a Paleo blueberry muffin last week. It was moist, like your cookies were, which I found surprising. I ground my own almonds for the recipe, which meant there were little almond chunks at times, but it added to the deliciousness.

    I’m vegetarian, but the Paleo diet seems like a healthy meat-eaters diet.

    1. I’m pescatarian and I feel the same way. I think eating paleo would be a real challenge as a vegetarian.

  10. I saw the invite to the Crossfit Full Circle Party last night. How was it? I did crossfit Thursday afternoon (Fundamentals #3) and couldn’t do a pull-up to save my life. It’s my goal to do an unassisted pull-up sometime in the near future. The cookies sound like they turned out great!

    1. I was wondering if you were going to be there. It was really fun – lots of tasty food and good people. Doing an unassisted pull up in one of my goals too – it’s so hard.

  11. Thanks for sharing this with all of us, I want to try and get into eating Paleo, and knowing that recipes like this are out there, will help a lot!

  12. They look great! Every time I bake with almond flour I think it’s going to come out super dry too but it never does. I’m still amazed at how nut flours work, but I love ’em!

  13. Hope you had a fun time at the Crossfit party! I have yet to try Crossfit (there’s one gym in London according to my last check) and I’m always tempted to give it a go! I love the functional training approach it uses, and looks like good fun in a group atmosphere.

  14. I made these for my family. My grand daughter, who has a low sensitivity to wheat, loved them. I didn’t tell anyone that they were gluten free until they had eaten them. No one complained and they all of the cookies.

    These paleo chocolate chip cookies are all you need after a long hard days work, this chocolaty goodness is just the thing to turn your frown upside down.

    1. Woot woot! I’m so glad you tried and enjoyed this recipe, Veronica. Thank you so much for coming back to leave a comment and star rating, I so appreciate it! The ratings are super helpful to other readers. <3

    1. Woot woot!! That makes me so happy to hear. 🙂 Thank you for coming back to leave a comment and star rating, Ainsly. They are super helpful to other readers, so I appreciate it!

    These are the perfect cookie with almond flour. I had a taste for a chocolate chip cookie, but wanted to stay on track for the new year. These taste identical to the cookies I have made for years with AP flour and butter. Thank you!

    1. Ahh I love hearing that, Lashon! I’m so glad you tried and enjoyed my recipe. Thanks for coming back to leave a comment and star rating. I so appreciate it!

    I was very impressed with these cookies. The texture was perfect and it completely satisfied my sweet tooth. Will definitely be making again. I added some pecans and I think next time i will make according to your recipe.

    1. Ahh that makes me so happy to hear, Jenn. I’m so glad you enjoyed this recipe. Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment and star rating. I so appreciate it!

    1. Hey Emily – Did you press them down to form them into a cookie shape once you added them to the pan? Did you switch up any of the ingredients in the recipe?

        1. It’s probably because you swapped out the flour for a different type. Not all GF flours work as equal subs for each other, so I’m assuming that’s what happened.

  18. Love this recipe! I have been doing the Paleo diet since October and have been very successful so far. These cookies will defiantly help me on my quest to a better me. I can have a treat every now and them and not got totally off tract!
    The only thing I substituted was the coconut oil for Almond Butter as I don’t care for coconut.

    1. So glad you enjoyed these cookies, Nicole!! Thanks for sharing the sub you made, it’s super helpful for other readers. 🙂

  19. 2 stars
    followed the recipe exactly the cookies look like terrible. I think you should provide pictures or a video

  20. 5 stars
    Wow these cookies are
    So good!!! My neighbor made them and shared a couple with me. I liked them so much that I asked for the recipe.

    I wanted to ask what can be substituted for the honey or maple syrup? I’m on Leo and would love to make these.

    Please reply with sny suggestions you might have.

    Thank you!!

    1. Hey Christie! So glad you enjoyed these cookies. 🙂 I haven’t tried anything else besides maple syrup and honey, but you could possibly try using liquid stevia or monkfruit instead? If you use stevia you’d just need to alter the amount you use. Let me know what you end up trying and how they turn out!

  21. 4 stars
    Thank you for this simple, tastey, quick recipe! We make things less sweet, and liked 2 T maple syruo with 2T less flour. I made a mistake on my measuring the second time I made them and used about 1T extra oil, which made them more rich and chewy. The first time I followed your recipe and the cookies were crisp, not chewy.

    1. You’re so welcome, Marie! I’m glad you enjoyed these cookies. Thanks for making them and for coming back to leave a comment + star rating. I appreciate it. 🙂

    We have some form of dessert every night. Usually i get a request for your standard Tollhouse chocolate chip cookie recipe. I made these the other night and have been asked to repeat it the past two nights noting they were the “best I’ve ever made.” And that’s compared to A LOT of cookies.

    1. Woot woot! I’m so glad these cookies have been a hit. Thanks for making my recipe and for coming back to leave a comment/star rating. The reviews are super helpful for other readers, so I really appreciate it.

  23. 5 stars
    I live in a country where I don’t have access to some baking supplies, so I have to be very picky about what I bake with coconut/almond flour and chocolate chips, as I have a limited supply that I brought with me. But these are sooooo good that I will gladly bake them again. And while I really enjoy the EBF coconut flour cookies, I think these are even better!

    1. Ahh that makes me so happy to hear!! I’m so glad you loved these cookies. Thanks for making them and for coming back to leave a review. I really appreciate it. 🙂

  24. 5 stars
    Absolutely love the addition of chocolate chunks with these cookies! Already onto my second batch, the saltiness is addicting! Big hit with my family!

  25. 5 stars
    These are simply the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever made. I like to add a sprinkle of flaky sea salt on top.

    1. So glad you loved these cookies, Colleen!! I love adding flaked sea salt to my sweets. 🙂 Thanks for the review. I really appreciate it!

  26. 5 stars
    Wow! Had to use up some almond flour that was about to expire and loved how quick, easy and delicious these were. 10/10!!

    1. Yay! I’m so gad you enjoyed this almond flour chocolate chip cookies, Elise! Thanks for the review 🙂

  27. Hey! I had a very quick question. If I don’t have coconut oil available, would avocado oil be a good substitute? I’m so excited to make these cookies, but I wanted to make sure before I swap any ingredients out.

    1. Hey Melody – Avocado oil should work just fine! Let me know how these cookies turn out for you!

  28. I don’t know what I did wrong, but I used a slipmat and these spread out way too much in the oven and are so thin.

  29. 5 stars
    delicious! came out crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside. my girls loved them, too. thanks for a great new recipe!

    1. Yay!! I’m so glad these cookies were a hit, Lis! Thanks for the review. I really appreciate it!!

  30. 5 stars
    So happy that I found this recipe!!! It was easy to mix up by hand and talk about delicious! My husband agrees! These will be a regular at our house!

    1. Woo!! So pumped to hear these cookies were a hit. Thanks for making them and for coming back to leave a review, Elizabeth. I so appreciate it!

  31. 5 stars
    Thank you so much for this recipe. My entire (picky) family loves them. My husband requests his with toasted coconut on top and swears its next level. I’ve had to make 5 batches already lol.

    1. Woo! I’m so glad these cookies have been a hit, Melissa! Thanks so much for the review. I really appreciate it!

  32. Made these today and they are FAB!
    I added 1/4 c rolled oats. Even my meat and potatoes husband loved them!

    1. Yay!! So glad these cookies were a hit. Thanks for making them and for the review. I so appreciate it!

  33. 5 stars
    These are so good and so easy!!

    Also, if you’re like me and want low sugar desserts but can’t eat just one— I cut the sugar content in half by using half regular maple syrup & half sugar free maple syrup. Still super sweet & stay together perfectly!

    1. So glad you loved these cookies, Anastasia. Thanks for the review. I really appreciate it. 🙂

  34. 4 stars
    Wonderful texture, light and chewy.
    I used agave nectar to sweeten, and reduced the cook time quite a bit (7 minutes). They spread out more than yours did, but they were still very tasty! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

    1. I’m glad you enjoyed these cookies, Rachel. Thanks for making them and for the review. I so appreciate it!

  35. 5 stars
    Did I spontaneously make these at 11pm to curb a sweet craving? Yes I did. Did I absolutely love them and indulge in two cookies guilt free? Yes I absolutely did! Amazing recipe and super easy to throw together. Will definitely be making these over and over again 🙂

    1. Haha I love it!! So pumped you loved these cookies, Michelle. Thanks for making them and for the review. I so appreciate it!

  36. 4 stars
    As much as I liked the ease of the recipe , I did not like how my cookies got burnt just at 15th minute.

    1. Sorry to hear your cookies got burned! Every oven is different so yours might just be hotter and the cookies can cook for less time (probably 12-13 minutes).

  37. 4 stars
    I agree with previous comment about oven. I reduced temp to 325. Otherwise cookies were too brown.

  38. 5 stars
    So yummy love the nutty chocolatey (yes that’s a word) texture and flavour. My only issue is once stored they became very soft. Any tips to keep a bit of the crispy element after storage? Thanks

    1. So glad you enjoyed these cookies! Thanks for making them. How were you storing them?

      1. I actually have the same thing. They were so amazingly crisp on the outside last night when I made them, but today they’ve become soft on the outside too. It’s still delicious! But I would love to keep that crisp. I personally just stored them in a glass bowl on a kitchen counter, without covering, once they already cooled, over the night.

  39. 4 stars
    Yummy, but I wish I had read the other reviews first. I baked them for 14 minutes, which was WAY too long. They were hard and too crisp. I will try again and reduce baking time.

    1. I’m so glad you’re enjoying these almond flour cookies, Megan! Thanks for the review. I so appreciate it!

  40. 5 stars
    These cookies are amazing! They taste so good and are so easy to make. My new go to for gluten free cookies!

    1. Sure, you could use the monkfruit maple syrup as a 1:1 sub! That should work just fine. Let me know how the cookies turn out if you try them!

  41. 5 stars
    These were so delicious!! It was my first time attempting to bake something gluten-free and I was intimidated. I did set a timer for 15minutes after they came out of the oven so I wouldn’t mess with them as they cooled and I was so glad I did. They held together super well and the first bite of this warm cookie was so encouraging – thank you for getting me excited to bake more gluten-free!

    1. So glad you enjoyed these cookies, Jenny! Thanks for making them and for the review. I so appreciate it!

  42. All your recipes are so good – simple ingredients, quick to whip up and this one is no different. Easy to make with kids and hits the spot when you need that cookie fix!

    1. Woo!! So glad these cookies were a hit. Thanks for making them and for the review, Amanda. I so appreciate it!

  43. 5 stars
    As always, you delivered. Cookies are so delicious! My girls helped me make them, so e only had 1c of almond flour so we subbed 1/4c coconut flour and an egg and they turned out beautifully. Thank you!

    1. Hey Rasha – I sometimes add the ingredients in grams if I measure during the recipe testing process, but for this one I didn’t. There are plenty of conversion sites like this one where you can convert cups to grams!

  44. How do I make this keto friendly? Instead of the maple or honey…what ratio can I use of the sweetner substitute and how much of it?

  45. 5 stars
    This is the best chocolate chip cookie I have ever made. I used butter instead of coconut oil.My friends went wild over them. I froze them and they tasted so fresh when they came to room temperature.

  46. 5 stars
    Absolutely delicious!! I was looking for a healthier way to eat chocolate chip cookies and came across this recipe. I had all the ingredients on hand and whipped these bad boys up and have already eaten 3! I did not leave mine in for 17 minutes as they would have burned. I started to smell them around 10-12 minutes and pulled them out around 14 minutes because they were golden brown-next time I’ll take them out at 12 minutes. I left them on the pan for 15 minutes as stated and they held together perfectly. Love how easy they were to make and will be my new go to chocolate chip cookie recipe 🙂

    1. Yay!! So glad these cookies were a hit, Leah! And thanks for the note about how long you cooked them for. I so appreciate the review!!

  47. 5 stars
    Brittany, these cookies are amazing. I am gluten sensitive and it is wonderful to have a gf option for a delicious treat. If you follow the proportions directions exactly, they are fantastic. Love your website. Cheryl

    1. So happy you enjoyed these cookies, Cheryl! Thanks for trying them out and coming back to leave a review. I really appreciate it!

  48. Hi Brittany,
    Thank you for all of your amazing recipes!
    I haven’t made these cookies yet because I have a question.
    Do you have an almond flour cookie recipe that you do NOT
    need to bake?

  49. Hi, I use olive oil in my baking,can that be interchanged for the coconut oil? Also,I made almond flour banana chocolate chip cookies with baking powder…they’re good but retain alot of baking soda better for that issue? Thanks!

  50. 5 stars
    These are so amazing!! Thank you so much for sharing the recipe! Best almond flour cookie I have made so far! So many other recipes call for Swerve (yuck!). Swerve leaves an awful after taste IMO. These are great though! No after taste and delicious! I used Lily’s chocolate chips. 🙂

    1. Yay!! So happy to hear these almond flour cookies were a success, Ariel. Thanks so much for making them and coming back to leave a review. I really appreciate the feedback!

  51. 5 stars
    These are perfect low carb treats! Made them today for the first time. They came out perfect and are really good! Thanks for a great low carb cookie!

    1. Yay!! So happy to hear these cookies were a hit, Donna! Thanks so much for trying them out and coming back to leave a review. I really appreciate it!

  52. 5 stars
    Perfect snack to satisfy my sweet tooth! I make a big batch of these to keep in my freezer and as someone who has made many almond flour cookies this is my favourite recipe. I’ve done this recipe with half oat flour as well and substituted chocolate chips for roasted walnuts when i make them for my mom since she prefers it thay way. Also added flax meal to my latest batch. Solid recipe no matter what you add. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

    1. Yay! So happy to hear you’ve been enjoying this recipe, Caasandra! Thanks so much for making it and coming back to leave a review. I really appreciate it!

    I really enjoyed these! Made them tonight and half are gone! My husband and kids loved them also. I was grateful that they required few ingredients (which I already had on hand) and came together quickly. Thanks for a great desert!

  54. 5 stars
    Absolutely declicious! I made the first batch per the recipe but the second one I added dark mint chocolate chips and pecans. Highly recommend for a healthier treat.

    1. Yay! So happy to hear you enjoyed these cookies, Evan. Love the addition of the dark mint chocolate chips and pecans. Thanks for the review. I really appreciate it!

  55. Hi there!

    Do you think this recipe would work to make a cookie cake? Either on the baking sheet or in a cake pan? Trying to find an alternative for my allergy kiddos to bring to a birthday party! Thanks!

    1. Ohhh! I haven’t tried, so I’m not 100% sure how this recipe would turn out as a cookie cake. Definitely let me know if you try it. PS: I do have a healthier cookie cake recipe coming in February. 🙂

    2. 5 stars
      I made these in a loaf pan as a small cookie cake! I cut the recipe in half and for personal reasons added more maple syrup and less coconut oil. It came out delicious! I made them thin and cooked it a little longer than suggested in original recipe. It all depends on your oven, bakeware and preference. I used a Temptations loaf pan. I hope this helps 🥰

  56. 5 stars
    These were delicious! Another great recipe. Could I substitute monk fruit sugar instead of maple syrup? If so, what’s the ratio?

  57. 5 stars
    Thank you for sharing! Based off of the comments I increased the maple syrup and am thrilled with how they came out! I reduced the coconut oil due to inability to have that amount and this did not affect the outcome at all 🥳 Bravo 👏

    1. Woo!! Happy to hear these cookies were a success, Kas. Thanks for the review. I really appreciate it!

  58. When you say “coconut oil, in a liquid state”, do you mean solid coconut oil that has been melted or do you mean liquid coconut oil? I’m not sure if they are interchangeable so I want to make sure. Thanks!

  59. 3 stars
    Cookie tastes good but far from low carb at all. 7 or 8 carbs or cookie is far from keto friendly. Easy recipe though, they come out well.

  60. 5 stars
    I made these cookies last night & subbed olive oil for the coconut oil. I also added chopped nuts and baked them in unbleached parchment muffins cups in muffin tins.
    Loved the texture and not too sweet as I only added 1/4 c. of maple syrup.
    Great recipe & thanks for sharing!

    1. Oh yum! Thanks for sharing your changes, they sound delicious! I appreciate you coming back to leave a review and star rating, it means so much to me.

  61. 5 stars
    another great recipe! I especially enjoy that the batches of cookies aren’t huge – they’re enough to get us (2 adults) through the week! I tried substituting 2/3 C of the almond flour for oats, and they still came out great!

  62. 2 stars
    The Good news is I could taste them before baking and so yummy. The bad news is nothing worked bakewise. I timed 17 minutes and many were too burnt to salvage. A few survived and were very crispy and pretty good. Next time will halve the baking time or bake at a much lower temp. Also the coconut oil does NOT mix in unless melted so had to use a hand mixer a long time to incorporate into the maple syrup.

    1. Hi, Lynn. I’m sorry to hear these cookies didn’t work out for you. As stated in the recipe card, the coconut oil does need to be in liquid (melted) form so it can incorporate. Did you change anything else about the bake temperature or time? Sometimes ovens are either below or above the temperature they are set at. I always use an oven thermometer to make sure the temperature is correct! Let me know if you try these again and how they turn out for you! 🙂

  63. 5 stars
    Turned out delicious! My family said the best cookies they have ever had! So good and simple ingredients. Thanks!

    1. Hi Brie, the baking time can vary! You just want to make sure the cookies are golden around the edges. Thank you for taking the time to come back and share your experience!

  64. 5 stars
    These are delicious!! Oh my goodness! I made a double batch this time because they were gone so quickly the last time.

  65. Excited to get started , ingredients are on the counter, and realized I only have 1 tablespoon of coconut oil left ! Can I substitute Ghee in recipe?? Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Susan! Yes, melted butter or ghee should work fine as a replacement for the coconut oil. Just be sure to measure it in the liquid/melted state.

    I was so excited to make these cookies and so disappointed with the end result. On a positive note, the Cookes were easy to put together and smelled great in the oven until they didn’t. Temperature was too high and the cooking time too long. My cookies were on an upper rack in my oven yet the first thing to burn (I believe) were the bottoms. The cookies were burnt to a crisp. That being said, I could not help but try one. I found the cookie to be very dry and in my opinion (and I’m not a sweets person) needed to be a bit sweeter.

    1. Oh no! So sorry to hear this didn’t work out, Jan. Did you change anything about the recipe?

    1. That’s great, Joanne! Glad these were a hit for you. I appreciate you leaving me a comment and review as well!

  67. Hi, any reason not used an egg in this recipe, basically all other cookie recipes ive seen use 1.?

  68. 5 stars
    These are so delicious. The texture is incredible. At first I thought I missed something in the recipe (it looked like the cookies wouldn’t hold together). But I was so wrong. Absolutely easy to make and delicious!

    1. AH! Great! I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed this recipe, April. Thank you for your review + star rating, I really appreciate you being here!

    Finally an incredible vegan and gf recipe! I am so grateful for you sharing this. I have been an eggless vegetarian for most of my life, and a few years was diagnosed with celiac disease. I’ve tried numerous recipes and they suck! This is a good one that provides the chewy and soft texture I really want. Thank you <3

    I added 1.5 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder.
    The dough was a bit more crumbly but they taste delicious.

    1. It was probably the addition of cocoa powder, you might want to adjust the recipe to balance out the wet and dry ingredients for a better consistency. But, I am glad they tasted great. Thanks for sharing your review + star rating, I appreciate it!

    I made these cookies but they came out super brown, almost burnt and I left them at 350 for only 15 minutes. How much time did you bake them for to get that golden color?

    1. Hi Rochy – I am sorry to hear these came out a little dark for you. I would recommend making these in the center rack. How long did you bake them for?

    1. Nope, I followed the recipe as it, if you like them a bit sweeter you could add more honey or maple syrup would add more sweetness to these as well.
