My husband is the Cookie Monster. Before I infected him with the health bug, he could devour an entire box of Chips Ahoy's in five minutes flat. But since going grain-free and reclaiming our wellness, we've been on the hunt for the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe to satisfy his cookie cravings.

Finally, after a few hours of toying with flours and starches in the kitchen, we found it! They're crunchy, crumbly, and perfectly sweet. And with no dairy, eggs, or refined sugar, they're safe for folks eating grain and gluten free, as well as vegans, too!

Petite Chocolate Chip Cookies (basically a vegan, grain-free Chips Ahoy)

Serves 12

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 2 tbsp arrowroot powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 1/4 cup milk, kefir, or nut milk
  • 1/4 cup Enjoy life chocolate chips or carob chips
  • 2 tbsp softened butter or coconut oil

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In a food processor, pulse together 1 1/2 cups of almond flour only, the coconut flour, baking powder, arrowroot, and salt until it’s all mixed. Add the butter or coconut oil, and pulse until it’s a crumb.
  3. Add the honey and milk, and pulse until a thick dough forms. You should be able to pick it up and ball it up in your hands—so not liquidy at all!
  4. This is where the extra half cup of almond flour comes in. If your mixture is still thin, add the extra flour and mix until it looks like your standard cookie dough.
  5. Fold in the chips, and don’t be afraid to eat the dough. It’s tasty.
  6. Break off tablespoon sized bits and roll them into balls with your palms. Place them on a lined baking sheet & give them a squish. They won’t spread at all, so you can put them fairly close together.
  7. Bake at 350 for about 25 minutes, or until they begin to get golden.
  8. Remove them from the oven, and lower the heat to 250. Put them back in for a good 15 minutes or so, or until they’re as crisp as you’d like. Once they cool more, they will be more like Chips Ahoy (dry and crunchy), so be patient!
