Gluten-free Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you enjoy cookies, then I believe you will love this gluten-free Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies– made with a combo of oat flour and almond flour.

It is are not only healthy but also easy to make. You would never guess they’re made without refined sugar, starches or gums!

Yield: 18 COOKIES

Prep time: 10

Cook time: 12

Total time: 22

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/3 cup solidified coconut oil*
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons almond milk
  • 1 cup almond flour (not almond meal)
  • 1 cup oat flour**
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F then line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer with a paddle attachment (or a large bowl using a hand mixer) combine coconut oil and coconut sugar. Mix on high for 1 minute then add vanilla extract and almond milk. Continue to mix for another 30 seconds.
  3. With the mixer running add the almond flour first. Next add the oat flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Continue to mix for about 20 seconds, until a dough forms.
  4. Using a spatula, scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl in between mixing to assure all of the ingredients are combined. If the dough appears dry and crumbly, try allowing it to mix for longer. If it’s still crumbly, try adding a tablespoon of milk. Stir in the chocolate chips at the end with a spatula.
  5. Using a scooper or a spoon, scoop out about 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of dough at a time. Arrange them on the baking sheet with about 2 inches in between each.
  6. Bake in the oven for 12-13 minutes, until edges are light golden brown.
  7. Allow to cool for at least 15 minutes before serving. They will continue to firm up as they cool. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container for up to 5 days. You can also freeze the balls before baking and bake from frozen when ready to eat.

 

TIPS

*If your coconut oil is rock solid, microwave it (without the lid) for 10 seconds, or until just soft enough to scoop. If it starts to get liquid-like then you will have to refrigerate until solid again. It’s very important that coconut oil is solid for the recipe to work properly. Vegan butter will work in place of coconut oil but the texture is softer with coconut oil. You can also use a combo of both if you prefer.

**Be sure to use certified gluten-free oat flour for allergies.
