Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Author: Jacqui
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 20 cookies 1x


This is the best gluten-free chocolate chip cookies recipe! They are crispy on the outside, soft and gooey on the inside, and full of rich, caramel flavor.


  • 1/2 cup melted (and cooled) ghee or coconut oil (113 grams
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar (95 grams)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups almond flour (192 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips (127 grams) (I use bittersweet)


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper. You may need two baking sheets depending on the size you have available. 
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the ghee, coconut sugar, egg and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy, and well combined.
  3. Add the almond flour, baking soda and sea salt. Using a rubber spatula, stir well to combine, scraping sides of bowl as needed. Gently fold in the chocolate chips.
  4. Using a medium sized cookie scoop or spoon (about 1.5 tablespoons of dough), scoop cookie dough 2-inches apart onto lined baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes until cookie edges are golden. 
  6. Let cool for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.


  • These cookies will be slightly crispy. If you would like them to be more chewy, refrigerate the cookie dough for 1 hour and up to 24 hours, then continue to step 4 to bake the cookies.
  • These gluten-free chocolate chip cookies can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Make sure they are completely cooled before storing.
