Almondy-Chocolate Chip Cookies (V&GF)

These are my favourite cookies that I’ve ever made!  And that’s saying something because I bake a lot of cookies!  My boyfriend is a cookie FIEND and he literally asks me to make him cookies every other day… I’m not exaggerating.  And I often oblige him at least once a week.  These cookies are delicious (if I do say so myself), they’re sweet, nutty and chewy, and they just happen to vegan and gluten free!  They can be a little crumbly, but just make sure you allow them enough time to cool down – and firm up – before diving in.  Enjoy!



Flax/Chia Egg:

  • 1/2 tbsp ground flax
  • 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 3 tbsp water

Cookie Dough:

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup cane sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 1/4 maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1/2 cup ground almonds
  • 1/2 cup brown rice flour
  • 1 tsp arrowroot powder
  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/4 dark chocolate chips
  • 1/4 shredded coconut


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree Celsius.
  2. Make flax/chia egg by combining ground flax, chia and 3 tbsp of water in a small bowl.  Stir, and let sit for 5 minutes.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, cream together the coconut oil, cane sugar, maple syrup, vanilla and almond extract.
  4. In a larger mixing bowl mix together the ground almonds, brown rice flour, arrowroot powder, xanthan gum, baking powder and salt.
  5. Next, add in the coconut oil/sugar, and flax/chia egg to the dry ingredients.  Stir until a sticky dough is formed.
  6. Stir in the sliced almonds, chocolate chips and shredded coconut. Spoon out roughly tbsp sized balls onto a baking sheet.  Makes roughly 10 medium/large cookies
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until edges are golden brown.
  8. Let cool for 10 – 20 minutes.  These cookies are quite fragile when they are hot, so give them time to cool down so they firm up.  Then you will have some delightfully chewy cookies to enjoy!
